I thank my lucky stars above that I was (touch wood!) blessed with a baby who began sleeping through of her own accord very early on. Maybe I have an angel watching over me who understands the limits of what I can cope with.
One of the great things about it, is that, once I have finally got her to sleep (took about 1.5 hours tonight), I kind of get to “knock off” for a few hours. I’m still “on call” but I know I’m not likely to be called upon for a few hours at least.
Tonight I sat and watched the tennis with Dad and treated myself to a couple of nice cold beers. Lovely end to a hot day.
