Why is it that there is only that minute – rub eyes, yawn once, ok maybe sleepy, yawn twice yep am there yawn three times, shit Ive missed it………………the window of sleep has passed and mummy is in serious trouble with a wide eyed, looking slightly manic baby to try to coax to sleep – hands up if you have been there this morn? Two hand mexican wave from me!
The whole reason being since birth Floss has found it difficult to settle, jumping, flailing arms, writhing and wriggling until once day once upin a time a friend mentioned ‘the magic sleep suit?’ Could it work I thought? Could it really stop the 3 hour trying to put down, overtired cranky baby, no napping unless cuddly cuddly…………..
And My God does it work!!!!
From the day I put her in it Flossie has gone straight down, off to the lovely land of nod feeling safe secure and SLEEPING THROUGH!! thank you baby merlin, thank you!!! I do wonder what is in this stuff as it literally is MAGIC!!
So what went wrong today…………………………..its in the washing machine, heart attck moment! Im willing the tumble dryer to dry faster – make it dry! make it dry! but alas a fail on the HM part, (moral of the story buy two – am not being paid by them by the way!)
After retriving said suit, a slightly raised heart rate, lots of strokey eye brow, heart beat womb music – harmony is restored and Flossie is sleeping like an angel. Honest Mummys slightly panicked look is starting to loosen, the eyebrows no longer look like a bad fix of botox and attached to my fringe (which is incredibly short for those of yo who dont know me!) and I find myself sat with a coffee watching Wooley and Tig?????
Perhaps that is all my brain can cope with……………………………
Still beats yesterdays 3 loads of washing and 6 puzzles with the boy before 8.15!!
Take care xx
