Too tired to blog

This week has been a challenge to say the least! Last weekend was good. On Saturday Monkeysinmypocket Facebook Page reached 111 'Likers' in less than a week. I gave away a set of my Pjs.
Sunday was Mothers Day and I scored there! An Overlocker! Yep, how lucky am I? I don't actually have it yet, but have been given permission to look for one at next weeks Craft & Quilt fair in Perth. Exciting I know!!
But then Monday it started. I wasn't expecting it that's for sure. He's always been a good sleeper. Well, except for the usual things like sickness and loud noises. This is making our house very unhappy at the moment. We are up to night 4 but it seems longer! William all of a sudden has been waking at 1am and is wide awake, ready for action. I looked for all the normal causes. Is he too hot, too cold, sore, hungry, thirsty? I found teeth, BIG TEETH erupting. Two year old molars are poking through. I tried Nurofen. Didn't work. I tried leaving him. Screamed for hours before finally dropping off after I gave up and stood at the bed.
Night 2, I let him sleep in our bed after half an hour. He was asleep in an instant.
Night 3, I went in, put him under the covers and left without a word. I lost count after 5 repositionings!
Tonight is night 4. I'm expecting it again, hoping I'm wrong!
We just aren't used to being awake for long periods anymore! We are all fuzzy and bleary eyed. I haven't sewn all week, I haven't blogged for ages. I'm trying to resist drinking coffee from a bucket, but I might fail tomorrow!

I'm hoping this cheeky little monkey will return to normal very soon!

Good luck- we have been going through the same thing! Toddlers are a mystery aren't they? Hope those teeth give your little one a rest. Bec
