The sleep thief returns

Yep, you read it. Boy 2 has decided that after 8 months, sleep is not for him! 

For the past few nights, he’s battled bedtime for a good couple of hours. Eventually he falls asleep. Then he’s up again by 1am. Arrrgh!!

You think waking for a newborn is bad? What’s worse is hearing a toddler whimper your name as they cry in the middle of the night. Heart. Wrenching. 

But the boy is smart. If I put him to bed, I’m in his bad books, so it’s daddy’s name he’ll scream for to come and rescue him and vice versa. 

I still can’t decide if I just let him sleep in our bed for an easy night. I know it’s wrong but mama’s gotta sleep! 

But, as we all know, babies and toddlers are unpredictable. Fingers crossed its a short term thing. Post holidays blues and all that. 

Wish me luck!
