Living Arrows 50/52

Last week was a really hard week. I feel like I’m saying this a lot lately but last week really was one of the most difficult weeks we’ve had for a long time. Toby got another cold and had a temperature again for most of the week. His bottom canine teeth are still coming through and are really bothering him too…and the upshot of all this was that we all got very little sleep! On Wednesday night he was up pretty much every hour and a half and so on Thursday when he still had a temperature I decided we would both benefit from a day at home. I had to take the day off work to look after him (luckily I have an understanding boss) and he seemed much improved. But then on Thursday night he didn’t fall asleep until 9 pm (having been in bed since just after 6 pm), he then woke up at midnight and after lots of crying (from him and me) he finally went back to sleep at almost 3 am! The temperature had gone on Friday morning though so I took him to nursery and struggled through the day at work myself.

Friday night was much better but Saturday was rubbish again, and last night was OK, with him only awake once at about 11:30 pm (but for almost an hour) before sleeping for the rest of the night. But…hopefully the end of our awful nights is in sight – yesterday I finally felt the tiny point of the last canine poking through the gum, so fingers crossed in another day or two the worst will be over!

Anyway, this week’s Living Arrows photo was taken on the day we spent at home – you wouldn’t know Toby was ill and had spent half the night awake looking at this picture would you?!

  1. I wrote a post a couple of months ago about how Little Man now settles himself to sleep. Well, the day after that post we had a night from hell which continued until three days ago. He woke constantly, would only fall asleep on us and ended up in bed with me often. We had week after week of tough times and it was exhausting. Thankfully now he has decided to sleep again, and is even going to sleep by himself again. AMAZING.
    What I am trying to say is ‘it’s just a phase’ and will pass, I hope next week is easier for you lovely x
