So after the bug, the bug recovery and then a random attack of teething, we are all feeling a little sleep deprived. It's not easy being up nearly all night, every night for a week with a sick/ teething child. Now that Alice has settled down a bit and is sleeping better, I suddenly feel absolutely exhausted! I think I was just running on "mummy adrenaline". By the third night I was like, "Who needs sleep? I feel fine!" Now it's a different story.
All of her naps are ruined as well. She wont go down for her afternoon nap any more, which means she has to go to bed at half 6 instead of half 7 and is up at half 5 in the morning! But these things can be fixed and we will get back in the swing of things soon enough I'm sure. As you can see from the pictures, Alice is currently teething but this tends to be in the day more than at night (thank you God!) so it's much easier to comfort her and distract her with toys and things than at night when you are all too tired to think straight!
