We have all been there, Hands up who HASN’T suffered at the hands of sleep deprivation? Im sure there aren’t many! Learning how to cope with sleep deprivation can be another matter entirely. It is not easy to parent muddled and in a tired haze but we all do it nearly every day none the less; but what if I told you that with a bit of motivation you could push through and make your day a little easier and less like you are one of the walking dead?
Over the past few months we have been struggling to encourage the little prince to indulge in his afternoon snooze, which has been quite frustrating and to be honest due to the time of year we put it down to Christmas. Eating habits tend to shift over the festive period and we figured clearly it was affecting his sleeping schedule (bed time was proving a little more trying than usual too) and it would soon get back into routine once Christmas had relinquished the normality of everyday. But alas… we were wrong. It seems that ‘nap time’ has faded just like the baubles and hoards of wrapping paper; it seems that ‘nap time’ was slowly becoming grown out of. Farewell nap time, you have served me well.
