Ive done that sooo many times and DS always finds me lol!!
opethmum - Thanks for your kind words, They have helped. I have my fingers crossed for tonight and as usual I am forever optimistic!! I am staying at my mums this weekend without the kids so I will at least get a full night then!! DH is more than happy to stay here with the kids/cats! The issue is mainly DS wants mumma!!! Dam he is lucky he is cute!! Its our wedding anniversary tomorrow and we are too tired to go out lol sad sad lives!!
Oh dear, happy anniversary. I know your DS wants his mumma and he is used to that but you need your sleep and him expecting you to play is not on and not nice it is possibly taking a toll on everything else. His expectations in the evening need to be quashed and you need to enforce more discipline, short term pain for long term gain. Perhaps after staying at your mums place and having a decent night's sleep perhaps start a new week with the new discipline and please don't give in or placate him, he can get plenty of one on one time with you during the day and you can have special times during the day etc. Place him back into his bed each time he comes to you during the night , if he needs a night light then by all means get him one, if he needs a visual aid to when it is ok to get out of bed, purchase a cheap clock and place a sun at the time you can come out e.g. 7 am and remind him each evening.
Good luck, I hope you have a great sleep at your mum's!
