The best present…

Our little boy has a strange relationship with sleep, the majority of the time he tends to ignore it as an inconvenience! We even tried chloral hydrate (under advice from our paediatrician) with no avail, in fact he was awake longer! My wife and I take it in turns to deal with the early mornings; often we sleep on the floor next to his bed as this, coupled with Debussy’s ‘Clair de Lune’ sometimes have a soporific effect! Last night was my wife’s turn, and given the recent time change back from BST we were awoken even earlier than usual at exactly 3am to the sound of the stair gate across his bedroom door being rattled like a cage!

When I got out of bed at 7am, all was still quiet! My wife came out of his room informing me that he was still asleep. He had been a bit of a pickle and been awake until 4:30am, but Debussy on repeat had eventually done the trick. We got up, emptied the dishwasher, made breakfast, sat down and ate breakfast together (a real treat), finished our tea/coffee and still no sound! At 8:50am we heard a noise and found the little man trying to open his blind!

Did I mention today was my birthday? What a wonderful present from a wonderful little boy…
