Today Owen finally slept through the night. In the day, while Peter was driving to Witney, Owen commanded in a stern voice, "Fast as you can!". And when we arrived and Peter was struggling to park the car in a tight spot, Owen commented, "Nice try".

Today Owen woke in the night and came to our bed again. In the afternoon, Peter took Owen to Charlbury's village 'cinema' to watch The BFG. Owen fell asleep on the way back and then slept on me for 1.5hr on the sofa when it was nearly dinner time. In the evening we wrapped up the presents while Owen slept.

Today we went to Zenah's house for our NCT group's Christmas party. Owen had a great time, and it was nice to see everyone again.

Today Owen appeared in front of me in the middle of the night asking to sleep in our bed. He tried for an hour and then went back to his room, so in the morning he was exhausted and when we woke him, he whispered, 'Just a little bit more...'

Today I shopped and shopped and read many reviews for Peter's present and was exhausted and had a impending cold.

Today Owen was super happy when home from nursery and couldn't stop talking. In the evening we got Owen's Christmas presents ready. Very exciting though it is unfair that we had to give most of the credits to Father Christmas who got us to do his job for him.

Today we went down to the garden centre to get a small Christmas tree, but decided not to as they were more expensive than I'd expected. Owen had a great time at the soft play and choosing the trees anyway.

Today I took Owen to the village toddler group. In the afternoon I was cross with Peter for being unappreciative of my efforts to upkeep our house, and Owen asked me, 'What's the matter?' when I sat sulking. And later I was too angry to go to bed.

Today I looked after Owen in the day while Peter worked. I also spent the day shopping for Christmas presents, and have got Owen's presents sorted.

Today Owen had a nightmare in the night and woke quite late and tired in the morning. Afterwards we went to watch Moana at the cinema.
