Oh what can I achieve whilst he sleeps.

I have to challenge myself to get as much as I possibly can done whilst little man sleeps (that is if he decides to sleep). We have a little argy bargy about sleeping, I love him to sleep before lunchtime, he loves to go to sleep at around 3pm and sleep until 6 (if at all). Most days are sleep free for us, no quiet time nothing, just full on Mr demolition man. I love that he is so wild and crazy, only his eldest sister was that way. The others were great sleepers and quiet little people most of the time.

I have given up trying to mop floors unless I know he is down for the night, I mean tiles, mop and a bucket full of soapy water is 2 year old heaven lol. I find myself on my hands and knees with a cloth wiping floors down so as to not excite him. Don’t even get me started on trying to clean the bathroom or toilet with him underfoot. I mean who doesn’t love to have their favourite towel stuck in the toilet bowl or all the toilet rolls full of toilet paper thrown in there. Funny thing is I love that he wants to be with me every waking second unless of course I have said no then I am the worst person on earth.

So over the last few days he has been a bit poorly and I admit I have relished the serenity of his long naps. Now don’t get excited and think I have taken this time to do those dreaded household chores nope. Scrapping, crafting and reading a book are the only tasks I set myself to do. Housework can wait :-). I know he is on the road to recovery as today his sleep was short so not much creative time.

I had a go at the Scrap the boys challenge which was fun, the title is minus one basically because I couldn’t find a black & white picture that was printed out of the little man. I love how it turned out, certainly not my usual style but fun for sure. I realised that I am very low on supplies for biy pages so I think I will be hitting up Shop and Crop as they are having a huge 3 day sale from tomorrow.

Why do toddlers eat sponges but not their dinner?

Honestly I need an answer to this question or else my son may starve. Mr 2 loves nothing more than finding my kitchen sponges and tearing them apart with his teeth I am forever finding little bits of yellow sponge all over the place. It is driving me bonkers considering I do give him nice meals that he refuses to eat on most occasions. I know 2 is a challenging age where they are trying to show us that they are independent little souls that don’t want to do what we want them to do very often. You would think that him being the last I of 5 it would be a walk in the park. Nope after 10 years I think I blocked out the agony of two. Ah well I shall endeavour to keep pushing yummy meals towards him to have them thrown on the floor or just not touched, we do get suprised every now and then when he picks up his fork and actually eats something that has been put in front of him.

Here’s hoping tonight’s dinner makes it into his stomach and not on the floor.
On another note, whilst Mr 2 slept last night I finished off my Scrap the girls challenge for May. I think I may play along again as I enjoyed using the sketch. I am finding that doing all the different challenges I am coming across is finally making me scrap again which is fantastic. I just need to sort out a space that allows me to have all my products on display so I can easily scrap. Here is my page.
