1 year, 9 months, 4 weeks & 1 day into Daddyhood

Talise recently had a spate of really good nights. Since then she has not been so good. Last night was a “Bit of a Bad Night.” One of those waking-at-2.50-and-not-going-back-to-sleep-until-4.30 jobbies. After we (the parents) had stayed up a bit later than usual the previous evening due to having Talise’s Uncle Colin over. So when we were then awake with her again at 7.00 we were Not Happy.

And then I had to jog with her in her pushchair to get her to her early morning ballet class. The things we parents will do!

But what’s it about? What are the reasons? We try to pin them down, but it is, at times, a puzzle of unfathomable proportions. Teething? Funny tummy? Too cold? Too hot? Too much sleep the previous lunchtime? Not enough? Disturbed by having a relative stranger in the house? Or just “one of those things”?

We’re going to try cutting down her daytime naps… I shall report back on the results…
