For Lack of Sleep

Lately, sleep has been a difficult commodity to come by in our house. Haddon has taken to sleeping with his face near my wife’s while laying sideways and kicking me in the face.

As you can imagine, his behavior is disrupting an already fragile state of sleep comfort in our house. Though my wife tends to prefer a warm house and piles of blankets, I’ve discovered the secret to the correct sleeping temperature.

For all of my fellow sleep-deprived-parents-of-toddlers, how do you manage to get enough sleep?

    Hi David.
    So Glad i am not the only one who has this problem!! my Wife Love a nice warm bedroom!! I like it a bit cooler!
    As for getting enough Sleep… Luckily my children are now old enough(10 and 7) to get up and sort themselves out particularly at weekends. Unfortunately I have no good advice to offer except that it will pass!! We do still have the odd night when my youngest gets up at silly o’clock and creeps into our bed, we just have to be disciplined to put her back!! it helps with the sleep!

      10 and 7? We’d already be there if we didn’t have the other kids. 😉

      10, 8, 5, 17 months, and another due in December.
