I felt a little smug the other day when first N and then J started getting sick. I totally convinced myself that I'd dodged this one, but it wasn't to be. I'm sick and totally miserable.
It's hasn't been helped by the fact that I didn't sleep well last night and N basically decided to start the day at 4.45am. I thought I'd settled him back to sleep, but was back in his room by 5.30 and I'm not sure he even went back to sleep. At which point. he told me 'I don't like to be alone' and I crawled into his bed where I tried to convince him that we both needed to sleep a little more. He wasn't having any of it, so at 6 we finally got up :-(
I am so not a morning person and am totally spoilt by the fact that he normally sleeps until at least 8 and often closer to 9!
The positive to such an early start is that we got to see mommy this morning. She usually leaves by 7 at the latest so it was nice to spend some time with her - even if we messed up her normal routine :-) Sorry hon!
We were at the library by 9 and headed home again by 10.30 when N decided he didn't want to stay for story time. The car ride is only 10 mins and as we were getting close to home I spotted N's eyes getting heavy. I asked him if he wanted me to keep driving and he said 'yes', so I did a quick loop and he was out. I got him into bed and went back to bed myself :-)
He was up just after 12 and we ate lunch, watched a movie, played outside and then I parented from the couch or floor until J came home to save us! She came home from a full day at wok and took over, made me dinner and did all the jobs I didn't get to today. I love my wife!
