Cast - Me (Mum) and 22mth old.
|I am AWAKE!!!!!|
I do try to leave him to settle himself initially, then I have to put his dummy in and get him to press his 'glo-worm' to sing him back to sleep. After about half an hour, this fails and he sings for a while, before the singing becomes so exuberant that I worry we will get complaints from neighbouring farms! As Husband it the full-time worker, 14y.o has school, and 18y.o has Uni, I get up and try to keep this little man quiet until a more sociable hour.
|Let me out!|
About 6.15am Husband emerges, and 22mths is very happy that 'Daddy' is up. Husband takes over for a while so that I can at least get dressed, and feeds 22mths breakfast. By 7am the entire household is up, but I feel like going back to bed! Next break isn't until 12.00, when 22mths goes down for a two-hour (fingers-crossed) nap. This is then the opportunity to do things around the farm that can't be done when he is toddling around. This week I have been busy clearing paddocks and chainsawing. Rising at 2.00pm, 22mths will eventually go back to bed at 6.30-7pm. It is a long day!
