My day




Well hello everyone what a day I have had, I didn’t have the best night’s sleep why well Little Leo was being difficult he didn’t want to go to bed last night and papa had to carry him into the bedroom and he had a tantrum and was fighting us because we said it was bedtime. This is because he has found a new love, computer games on the Cartoon Network website.  He also kept saying he wanted to stay up till his mum got back here but she wasn’t coming back here for the night and he was just difficult and this meant that I didn’t sleep well as I was listening for him I was worried he would decide to go outside and look for her but he didn’t he just didn’t settle till around 3am yes 3am……..

So I was awake at around 8ish this morning and got up and used the computer for a bit before he woke up and wanted to get onto the Cartoon Network site. 

Jessica arrived around 9.45am to go and pick up her car from the mechanic she had the motor replaced along with the radiator cost was $1,715 it took all the money she had but it had to be done. 

So after they did that Jes and I went to Charlie (Charlestown Square)  which is the shopping centre we go to most of them time to look at the Christmas toy sales, Jes showed me a few things I could get for Leo she wants me to make a layby for her. She left before me and came and got Leo and went home to her place. When I left the centre it took me 35 minutes to drive from level 3 in the carpark where I was parked to level 2 it should take like 2 minutes but no 35 minutes it took me due to the crowd and then it took me only 2 minutes to get out of the carpark once I got onto the right level to exit. 

When I got home the first thing I did was iron Tim’s work shirt so he could head off to work he will not be home till around 10pm I think if not later doesn’t really matter as I will be in bed by the time he gets home.
It is also cold and wet again today so I will be going into have a nice hot bath when I post this as it is now like 4.45pm and if feels later maybe that is because I had such a bad night last night.

  1. He was anxious indeed to get back to the Games.
    I used to iron my husbands & sons shirts at midnight or 1am once...

    1. Yes he was, and I can remember when I would iron Tim's shirts late at night before I went to bed

  2. My former next door neighbor did not trust her child to stay put in his room. Their pediatrician told them to put a lock on the outside of his door, and she did.

    1. I remember when Kathy was a little girl I wanted a lock on the outside of her door because when she was naughty and sent to her room I would have to stand there and hold the door shut or she would just run out of the room and then out of the house.

  6. I feel for Jessica, it never rains but it pours. We are in similar boats, and I pray nothing else happens before she can build a little back up.

  7. Having a bad night of not sleeping makes everything so much harder the next day. That's a shame about Leo fighting bedtime. Our 5 year old grandson also likes computer games.

    1. It did keep him happy and the games are the type that help him learn but I am going to have to be stronger and demand that he goes to bed when I say so

  9. I hope you get some sleep. When our kids were young we had inexpensive alarms on the doors that would sound very loudly if the door was opened.

    Love,

  10. I'm so sorry you had such a difficult night. It's tough when children refuse to settle down.

    I hope you had a nice warm bath and an early bedtime!
