Sleep is for weaklings, right? That’s what I’ve been telling myself. Evidently, so has Hugo.
Our little boy has just cracked the one month mark and decided he no can no longer sleep during the day. This has nicely coincided with Alex going back to work and Elena’s family day care provider not coming back to work as planned.
Result? A little boy who can’t sleep and a bored big sister who is doing her best to make sure it wouldn’t happen, even if he could!
In other words, yesterday was really tough. Hugo slept for five minutes every two hours for the whole day, poor little thing. Every mother I know has been here at some point, but it doesn’t make it any more fun.
Needless to say, there’s not much knitting happening here.
Alex came home via the baby store where he picked up a playpen. Yet another thing to hide during our open homes! I’m not going to use it to restrain Elena, rather, I’m hoping it will protect Hugo.
Here’s to more sleep for everyone.
