How precious is sleep?

I can't believe the years that I spent taking my sleep for granted! What I wouldn't give for an uninterrupted night of sleep or the days of old - where I was known to sleep into the afternoon.

Our little man is actually a pretty good sleeper - I know most people wouldn't complain, and I'm only kind of complaining ;)
Generally he will go down between 7:30-8pm and sleep at least until 4am with no wakes ups in between :) At which point my darling B. (Oh how I love this man!!) will get up and try to resettle the little man. Most of the time he is successful and the little man will sleep until around 6. Sometimes later if I'm really lucky - but most of the time 6 am is the wake up time for me.

blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh 6am I hate you. I've always hated you. I would rather not to see you at all. I hated you when I was forcing myself to get up and go to the gym, to attend personal training and to get to meetings before work, but I HATE you even more now that I am forced to see you on a daily basis........
Even worse is the fact that the little man wakes up HAPPY!!! He is ready to play - whilst I am usually thinking 'why the hell don't I drink coffee??'. I need more sleep!!
Apologies for the crap quality - This pic was taken on my iPhone this morning!

I look forward to the days of sleep ins again... maybe in 10 years time!


  1. I just wanna say "How I WISH my boy would sleep 8 til 4!" Maybe he should take some sleeping lessons from your little man.
    I hate 6am, too. I think it should be outlawed as a wake up time - especially waking up happy!!

  2. My boy has only started sleeping through the night very recently - before that he'd need resettling about 4-5 times a night and sometimes as many as a dozen if there were teeth involved. But now that he's sleeping really well I find I'm just as tired as I was before! We make do with what we have it would seem.

  3. Your baby is absolutely gorgeous! Congratulations



Leave me some love <3
