I know that many of you will have been awake in the small hours with your babies. For the most part Baby Sprout is a great sleeper and will often sleep through until 7, but once or twice a week I get a 5 am wake up call. He wants milk and a cuddle, and quite often a small play before he will go back to bed at about 6. But of course then I am wide awake!
Whilst I don’t love dragging myself out of my warm bed at this time, once I am up I do quite like it. The house is quiet and I get some time with Baby Sprout to myself which I don’t have too much of. It is so early I don’t feel any need to do any housework except maybe put a load of washing on so I sit there, with Baby Sprout having a little kick about on his mat while I enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a catch up on some blogs!
It is a little bit of ‘me time’ carved into my crazy life, and although I do have to sacrifice a bit of sleep to get it, I do secretly enjoy it!
