Today I still get little sleep. Owen didn't want to go to nursery, and I only managed to persuade him by reminding him how much he liked the food there. Indeed he ate all of the macaroni cheese for lunch including the sweetcorn (he never touched those at home). When he came home, his hair was full of sand. He'd put sand in his hat, he said. I wondered if he's been bullied.
Today Harriet slept horribly in the night, and so I had very little sleep and had to make Peter take her when he takes Owen to preschool so I can have extra snooze.
Today Harriet slept and slept. I was annoyed with Owen when he again refused to eat dinner for some spurious reasons (he didn't like having the food stuck in his teeth) and was quite mean to him after dinner, making him cry. I then felt very sorry and apologised.
Today we stayed home and I decided to restart my previously abandoned '365 Things That Make Me Happy' photographic project.
Today we attended a combined birthday party for Owen and the NCT friends' children. Owen was quite fussy though, and Harriet was all smiley and happy.
Today was Peter's birthday. His parents came down to celebrate with us at Blenheim Palace. Owen had a great time, but unfortunately Harriet was cranky all day. In the evening when I could finally put Harriet down to bake the quiche for tomorrow's party, I finished at 1AM!
Today we got the election results. We went to apply for the children's passports and were advised to return again with more paper work. Harriet was still not napping or sleeping well, we may have broken her. Did I boast that it was easy the second time round?
Today was elections day. Harriet was still napping and sleeping badly. I lost my cool with Owen when he had a meltdown while we were bathing Harriet. Everything's much harder when you're tired!
Today Harriet was still sleeping and napping badly. Poor us. It's been cold and wet as well, the heating was even on!
Today baby Harriet had been sleeping badly in the night again, wanting to feed every hour, and so I moved her back to sleep in our bed as I didn't want to keep getting up.
