When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

Never Move A Sleeping Toddler

sleep

Yes I am one of those annoying parents that have been totally totally lucky. Joshua has been an amazing sleeper from a mere 5 weeks old.

Every evening my little man brushes his teeth and treks up the stairs to go and give loves to Ted (his teddy) Largely he is in bed fast sleep by 7.30 pm for a good 11-12 hours.

Ok so this last couple of weeks Joshua, Beth and I have been totally bunged up with snot, this as we all know can make it quite difficult to breath. Having said that I have added a pillow into his cot to raise him slightly which has helped.

In my wisdom at 12.30 am on Saturday morning when on route to bed I decided that I ought to remove the pillow as its no longer needed.

Joshua was not actually using the pillow however when I very quietly took it out he shot up in his cot and began to cry. *go Jaime you numpty*

After settling him back down the only thing way he would stop crying is if I laid on the floor and held his hand through the cot bars.

Nearly an hour passes and I am seriously in pain with my PSD and my eyes are hurting as I am so tired … Joshua on the other hand is wide awake and muttering.

After taking all the pain I could, I shipped in Ollie for his stint on the floor holding hands … several hours pass and the boys remain locked in a marathon hand holding session when Joshua finally drops off.

All those Mummies and Daddies out there that have a tot that wakes frequently in the night you are all my heros! you are far better people than me as a couple of days on and I am still grumpy with lack of sleep!
