The story of last night

There wasn’t a lot of sleeping that went on in this house last night.

Hubby and I have now managed to piece it all together. 

We think it went as follows:
Midnight:  Mignon was crying and I got up a couple of times to put dummy in mouth

Midnight – 2 am: Daniel in our room a couple of times, only to be promptly escorted back to his room by Dad

2 am:  Mignon awake and crying until she got a bottle at 2h30

2h30:  Isabel woke up

3 am:  Mignon fell asleep and Isabel was given a bottle

3h30:  Isabel lost her rag with me refusing to pick her up and sleep with her and was actually yelling at me, a hoarse, pissed off Mamma, mamma, mamma (a lot of rage for a 16 month old me thinks)

4 am Isabel eventually passed out

Edit: around this time we also received an sms from our neighbourhood watch informing us about a break-in in the area.  This also didn’t make me want to go to sleep

4h10: Daniel woke up crying

4h30: Dad goes to lie with Daniel

4h45: I hear something in the courtyard and run down the passage

5h00: Dad gives up and comes to bed.  I then realise it is probably his eczema keeping him awake and put cream on. 

5h10: Daniel eventually settles after Dad puts him back to bed a couple of times

6h15: Dad wakes up

6h45: Dad drags Mom kicking and screaming out of bed.

What did we learn?  That sharing really is caring.  We REALLY shared the load last night 🙂 Now I just need to train hubby to make me coffee in the morning!

  1. Yip, the night from hell. After Connor sleeps through for 2 nights in a row, I gte one of these nights too. Strength for the day ahead!

  2. I can’t begin to imagine to have a little boy AND twin girlies in the house, I battle enough with Minki.
    You are an amazing Mum, and I would love to meet you and your kids.

  3. Oh goodness, I hope the new baby is as good as sleeper as my son. He has never woken in the night since he was a tiny baby (with the exception of when he has been really sick) I think you deserve a huge medal!!!

  4. This puts the sense of humour failure in more perspective! shoo weee, can I send matchsticks rather?
