Tired, again

18 Oct

Cute, isn’t he? He’s also been awake since 3am with a sick tummy. I tried to tuck him into bed after each visit to the toilet but it still took him an hour to fall back asleep.

I then suffered from a condition I like to call ‘Post Baby Waking Up Insomnia’. I was happy he was asleep but I was now fully awake and thinking about the following – what desserts I would make for my brother-in-laws party this weekend, a job I am applying for, my uni degree, the laundry I want to do and what I am going to eat for breakfast.

So I have decided to make use of my time. I am watching the news and blogging. I am also clinging to the hope that due to his broken sleep he will have a nap today which means I will get a nap which means I won’t be grumpy when my husband gets home.

By the way…there is a tummy bug going around. It doesn’t cause pain, fatigue or vomitting but there will be quite a few visits to the toilet and some unusual night-time activity. And insomnia – let’s not forget that.

    Hi there .. I work for Today Tonight at Channel Seven. I’m working on a story about food allergies and was reading a Body and Soul story when I saw your comment and this link to your blog (I think that’s the connection) .. I was just wondering if we could chat about your experience in raising a son with food allergies and what it’s like dealing with kindergartens/schools etc and conveying to them the seriousness of the allergies. I’m on 0417 896 231 .. please give me a call as soon as possible. Kind regards, Emily Clark
