Dear daughter…

…my darling toddler, I appreciate that you have teeth coming through, which could be causing you pain & discomfort, which is why I offered you pain relief. You are still crying. I trying staying in the room quietly in case it was a separation anxiety thing – you sat yourself up & tried to reach me through the bars of your cot. I don’t like leaving you to cry, but it seems more affective than staying in the room with you, at least then there is a few minutes of silence before you start complaining again. I know I was foolish to not go to bed earlier and stayed up to eat and watch TV (that I’d prefer you didn’t watch). Your intermittent sleep/cry pattern is a tease to my sleep. Daddy can sleep through it, but those cries cut through my sleep, and leave me waiting to see if there will be more! If you’d like a happy, refreshed Mummy, then allowing me a bit more sleep would be much appreciated, I’ll never make up for the last few nights missed sleep, but one good night would be a token offering!

Yours with much love,
Your sleep deprived Mummy.


It’s snowing…

…on my blog.

This was a cute feature that I couldn’t resist. There will be snow on my blog until 4th Jan. If you are feeling bored (or intrigued), move your mouse cursor left or right and watch the snow change direction!

Welcome to my new blog

I have had a few blogs over the years, but I wanted to do one with hopefully a bit more structure, focus and regular updates! Over the last year or so my husband has said to me, you should really blog that! I’ve replied with a sound of agreement, but never got round to doing anything about it. When I was pregnant with my daughter I blogged about aspects of my pregnancy, but since that crazy day when I gave birth to my unique blessing from God, life has been busy, sleep is precious and a mixture or Facebook and Babycentre groups have sucked up my little spare time.
