To sleep, perchance to dream...

I saw a briliant rubberstamp yesterday while I was spending money I shouldn't be idly browsing my favourite craft shops online...

"People who say they sleep like a baby, generally don't have one."

It made me giggle.

But, at the risk of sounding ridiculously smug & probably jinxing myself big time, I'm actually pretty lucky in that department. The little dude generally drifts off at about 8ish, has a sleepy feed at 11.30ish, then *usually* goes through to around 6am (which to be honest, is a little earlier than I generally like to get up, but I suppose I shouldn't complain!!) - not too bad for a 3 month old!

What I don't get though, is my inability to last on minimum sleep rations.

Back in the day, I was quite a party girl!
At college, I'd go clubbing til the early hours & still make morning lectures, at least 3 times a week - I'd pull all nighters to get coursework in on time, not a problem, I'd be out again over the weekend & still hold down a weekend job - easy!

And even more recently pre-baby, my colleagues at work were always amazed at how fresh-faced I looked on a Friday morning after a weekly Thursday night karaoke-a-thon til 1am - and that was when a night out included more than one or two cocktails!!

Now, I barely drink, am pretty much always in bed just after midnight, and yet still find myself giving sleepy the dwarf a run for his money in the yawning stakes by teatime! Definitely need to work at the baby stamina - he'll be crawling before long, I'll spend all day chasing him round the house, and then I'll really be shattered! :P

Speaking of sleep - have you checked out the contest over at cafebebe? If not, do! It's a great prize, sponsored by pampers, and while you're there - have a poke around the site, it's fabulous :)
I'm going to enter a picture of my sleepy little man.. I know, I know, mushy new mummy taking photos of the snoozy baby, but really - how cute? very :D

sweet dreams dear readers! x


  1. I'm glad little dude is sleeping well, long may it continue :-)
