So for the last couple of weeks my 8 month old has taken to going to bed at around 7pm. However this usually involves screaming, pouting, laughing and going back forth between us to decide who gets the pleasure of the “I got him to sleep” victory dance.
My partners dance lasted 5 seconds tonight, as my son promptly rolled on to his back, opened his eyes and laughed. Usually this reaction brings forth either rage, irritation or the “for friggs sake- you were *just* asleep!” Complete with hands thrown in the air. My son knows how to irritate me. I swear he does it on purpose.
This time I couldn’t help it and just started laughing. I’m unsure if it was sleep depravation or it just looked adorable, but I even caught my partner smothering a laugh.
It took us 5 minutes to realise we would now have to redo the whole sleep routine to get him back to sleep. Partner reached down, grabbed our son and was rewarded with an indignant squeal which sounded like “hey, I was enjoying that!” And promptly started to cry.
It took another hour before he finally passed out. This scenario also happens at 3am- EVERY MORNING.
So I really admire those that are single parents or have more than one child, one is a handful as is!!
