already looking forward to going to bed tonight
welcome to the world of a feverish 3-year-old, where it seems the correct way to defuse a gathering tantrum and send him happily back to sleep is to draw him a picture of a napping dinosaur ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
my partner is a wonderful genius and has figured out how to make M go to sleep at a reasonable time again and she is the best <3
This is new.“Why aren’t you wearing any pants, mate?”
do you need a wee?
OMG I NEED A WEE NOW NOW NOW
dreaming again of a holiday that is basically just a library with a crèche
M, pointing at puddle: I call these ‘wet chaps’
It’s a lovely day, so all the playgrounds are full of kids and we can’t go anywhere near them. We are the Flying Dutchman of pox.
and now he's got chickenpox :(
Laundry Basket Zero
achievement unlocked: doused in wee by a howling toddler while locked in a museum toilet cubicle together
I have discovered the inherent flaw in the 'do loads of stuff with him during the day so he'll sleep well' plan 💤
unexpected few hours by myself.
what I intended to do: read make stuff read some more catch up on correspondence do brain things
what I actually did: played a computer game and had a big nap
“Isn’t it a lovely day in the darkness” he says
absolute scenes here as M helps to construct his new big boy bed and then goes to sleep in it with no protests.
@prehensile and now he’s naked. by his own hand. which is kind of impressive, actually
oh my god he’s just not going to sleep
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE PLEASE SEND STRONG COFFEE IMMEDIATELY
A Mastodon instance for tired parents. Be excellent to each other!
