Sleepy head

6 Feb

Oh my I must of needed some sleep as it’s 3pm and I have just woken up.
The childrens father took them to school and my mum had collected them for me.
I think there always comes a time when you need a good sleep or rest so you can fell really refreshed and that’s better when looking after the children.
As I woke up all alone my heart was beating so fast as I had no idea of the time and the house was silent. I wondered where everybody was. My little man would have no problem about going for a Walk or even catching a bus alone as he is so bus mad. It took me a few min to come together and remember there father had taken them into school.
Well it’s 4pm now. The children are still at my mothers and she’s feeding them tonight:) there Dad will collect them soon on his way back from getting the shopping. So that gives me a little more me time:)

Sweet dreams

15 Jan

Night night G. As i leave the room i think to myself please god let this work!

It’s night three of my son taking the supplement Melatonin. The first night well lets just say that it didn’t go to well. After having spent what felt like forever never getting any sleep i suppose i was expecting something amazing to happen. When it didn’t i almost felt like giving up. G took the Melatonin and after being awake a further hour fell asleep only to wake after two short hours spending the rest of the night wide awake. Night two was fabulous! Given the fact G had only slept two hours the night before i still sent him to school in the hope he would slept better that night. Melatonin was given at 7.30pm and amazingly my boy was sleeping by 8pm. Wow i was ecstatic.

Despite G being asleep i found it increasingly hard to sleep given the fact i was not used to such privileges. Tonight was the real test. G has had a full nights sleep and a full day at school and seemed full of energy. This would confirm weather the Melatonin really was making a difference.

Well it’s been a few hours and little man is still dreaming. Something fantastic must be happening because it normally takes half the night to Seattle him. So it looks as if we may be making great improvements in the bedtime area. Apart from his sleep talking the house seems a lot quieter which i must say is rather nice but will take some time to get used to:)

School run

9 Jan

Don’t we all just love doing the school run “Not”. But the few hours break it gives us to do them chores or a bit of me time is wonderful. But it seems to fly before you know it your back at the gates picking them up.
As some of you may well know my mornings of school runs are just pure hard work. With my son’s late nights he is not best pleased with the whole let’s get up and get ready for school thing. He is hard to get ready and out the door making his little sister late. First few days back after the Christmas break they were unable to even attend due to the household having a lack of sleep. His sister being kept awake and me not having a wink of sleep. Well there back and fingers crossed his not done to badly:) meaning I have had a bit of me time well housework time. But housework time fell’s like a great time right now 🙂
