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.
Off to feed the family. x
