Today has been looooooooong.
Mabel is going through a bad sleeping phase for some reason. 
When they're a baby you tell yourself they'll be over things like this by the time they're 4 but nope, we still have sleep regressions 👍🏻. At the moment she's finding it hard to fall asleep, and then waking up super early in the morning. Soooooo she's not getting a lot of kip 😴 
The worst thing is she stops everyone else from sleeping too 😩 So we have a house full of tired and emotionally fractious people today and I want to run away... to a bed, somewhere quiet. 
I guess I'll stay though.
Can't be arsed to run 🏃 #lazyforlife

  • squishedblueberries@bubbablueandme thank you, me too! 🙏🏻🤞🏻
  • squishedblueberries@twinderelmo I know her hair is crazy isn't it? Still not ginger though 😉
  • squishedblueberries@mudpiefridays me too Hun, me too 😴😴😴
  • squishedblueberries@hotpinkwellingtons Yeah nobody warns you that they still wake you up in the night or at 5am even when they are big boys and girls do they?? Xx
  • fivelittledovesOh but look at her hair!!!! 😍😍😍
  • 50messyfingersSounds tough. Got a three y/o here going through something similar. Stay strong, and slow down, it's allowed <3
  • squishedblueberries@fivelittledoves it's quite a mop isn't it? Xx
  • katequinUgh Templeton still wakes, he'll be 4 in May and most nights my 6'4 husband ends up tucked in to his bed beside him!! I say I can't wait for the teenage years when we can torment them and disrupt their sleep 😂😂😂
  • squishedblueberries@50messyfingers thank you. I let them have more screen time today than I normally would but I just needed everyone to sit still for a while you know? She went to bed saying her 'body feels funny'. Probably because you're exhausted love! I'm having an early night tonight for sure xx
  • memeandharriOh her hair. There is nothing worse than when they are tired but can't/won't sleep! Sending love x
  • kirstymcmanusIs it bad that I have complete hair envy right now?...
  • squishedblueberries@katequin this is why we got a super king bed! 🙈 Oh when they are teenagers I'm going to go back to sleeping in like a teenager too! 😂😂
  • squishedblueberries@memeandharri Mabel has always fought sleep. I don't know why she hates falling asleep 🤷🏼‍♀️ She'll do anything to keep herself awake it's so annoying. It's particularly bad at the moment though xx
  • squishedblueberries@kirstymcmanus haha she does have gorgeous hair but it's a nightmare to keep tangle free x
  • 50messyfingers@squishedblueberries same here. Asked if they wanted to go out and run about which normally gets a shout of yes and dash to put on their boots but today he balled up on the sofa and said he wanted his tablet, so I let him. I'm thinking he probably needs the quiet time. Hope you have a good night.
  • bridiebytheseaWhat a gorgeous shot! I feel you though, we're almost 2 years into sleepless nights and it's such a struggle x
  • lifeatcookscabinOh bless you, J started going through the phase over Christmas. We got a clock and told her she wasn't allowed to wake us before 6 on it - best £5 I've ever spent 😂
  • vicweltonI hope you have a less tired day today x
  • katykickerSorry to hear that. Tiredness is so hard isn't it x
  • kerryvillersLove this, her hair looks beaut xx
