Hi everyone and a very early good morning!!!
Just spent the first night on my own with my mum. My dad is mums full time carer and had to go into hospital yesterday for a minor operation and a one night stay. The whole day went very well until bedtime! I had tried to explain to mum that dad was away tonight and that i will be in the next bedroom so she would not be on her own.
Well she went off to sleep after lots and lots of questions for about 2 hours and then has been up and out of bed wandering really since then (went to bed at 10.30!!). I tried sleeping with her, chatting in bed, and eventually the birds starting singing and i suggested getting up and having a nice cup of tea which she gladly agreed with. Bless her!
Well i think we both will sleep well tonight!! As i lay in bed trying to get mum to sleep at 2 this morning it reminded me of when i had my last child 14 years ago when nights like this were very common but like all mums we forget them quickly! Not so sure i will forget this one so quickly.
Have a lovely weekend all of you.
A very sleepy Busybee
