Motherhood, Parent

Bed time

And I’m not talking about the baby here.

For the last few nights, I’ve been crawling into bed approximately 10 seconds after TJ (finally) goes to sleep.

I did put up a fight for a while – persevering through bleary eyes to have some baby-free sofa time with the other man in my life (TJ’s Dad)

But there’s almost a direct correlation between how heavy TJ is (currently tipping the scales at 20 pounds) and how early I’m a walking zombie. Lugging that not so little man around is tiring work for most, never mind someone with my shockingly low fitness levels of late.

So in the battle between binge watching box sets and bed, I’m afraid the latter is definitely winning at the moment.

At least TJ’s Dad gets to enjoy hogging the remote.

Throw some money at it

Babies are big business – we all know that. And I’m a prime target for the latest gadget – are you?

I’m now a proud owner of a baby food maker and a Sleepyhead Grande. This has left me nearly £200 poorer.

But with bags still under my eyes and a weaning cookbook on the side, these two products may well get me through.

Two meals in and I love the Philips Avent steamer and blender. I’m waiting with baited breath for the Sleepyhead to arrive and the blissful nights that it may bring to our home.

It’s been a busy month as TJ gets more communicative, more interactive and even more vocal (this dude has always loved the sound of his own voice) So my hands free time (which is when I blog) has greatly reduced.

We’ve also had more than our fair share of sleepless nights – including three nights of drama and tears when Daddy was away on a stag do!

So if technology can help make this journey a smoother ride for us all then that’s just priceless.
