No sleep and being able to see again

Our littlest man hasn’t been sleeping well this last week. We couldn’t understand he fuss at first but he keeps waking around 2am, getting into our bed for a snooze and then just waking constantly after that until it’s time for everyone to get up for the day. Of course by that point he’s probably knocked out and may as well be snoring away. It’s been tiring but I eventually did a quick Google and realised he’s going through a big mental leap. I forget which now but it’s meant to last another week. Deep joy. So hopefully there is an end in sight and we will all get sleep again soon.
Meanwhile, the eye cream industry is making shed loads of money from me as I try out yet another expensive one to cling onto my yoof.

He’s also throwing hints about potty training. He cannot stand any kind of dirty nappy and will even wake us at night time to change him. This is TERRIBLE!! Mainly as I hate potty training. The last time with Z wasn’t actually that bad when it came down to it but I’m hoping I get another few months at least before we have to go down that route.

I also now have glasses and I can SEE!! It’s slightly alarming me how I’ve been looking at blurry faces at a distance and not realised all this time that they weren’t quite in focus. Apparently it’s quite a common thing to happen and people don’t realise their vision deteriorating but I’ve now stopped gawping at people far away like a goldfish for that extra second. I don’t need them all the time, just when my eyes are “tired”, which is usually around the afternoon after staring at a computer screen for a few hours. But ahh it’s so nice to see things sharply again.

  1. Oh, the joys of potty training!! IT might be easy and if he shows signs of being ready, I’m sure it will be fine. I still have nightmares about potty training my youngest son, I am very glad that I don’t have to do that again. The glasses look lovely, it is weird when the world suddenly becomes clear, isn’t it? My last visit to the opticians was a shock as there was a big difference from my last prescription and when I had my new glasses, I couldn’t believe the difference.

  2. The new glasses look good! And I am so glad we’re past the point of potty training now – that’s a time we definitely don’t miss at all …

  3. Hi Taz, deprive me of anything but not my sleep (or sugar)! I hope the faze is as short-lived as expected. .. Your glasses look good on you and that reminds me I really must go and see an optician, I want to see the world through sharp eyes!… Good luck with the potty training too.

  4. Great new glasses, I’m expecting mine shipped over the UK this week so very excited, can’t even remember what they look like it’s been that long since I ordered them! Potty training is hard, mine were both done by two as we used cloth nappies and I was fed up with washing them! Good luck and I hope the sleep gets better asap!

  5. eye sight and hearing deteriorate over the years tiny bit by tiny bit and amazing how we dont notice it, but glad you have the glasses sorted. I need distance ones for driving. They look great on you.
    My daughter hates potty training as well and usually waits until they bring themselves out
