Thursday Scarlett woke up in the night. She’s really into midnight Mama Snuggles at the moment. I’m loving it but I still put her back to bed. No bed sharing. It’s like sleeping with a drink octopus lol
Friday was looooooooong. It just seemed to drag. I felt really tired. I guess working a full week after being off for so long had caught up with me. Scarlett went to bed at 7:30. My mom went to work at 9. I watched some more Elementary. Scarlett woke up at 10:30. I brought her downstairs. I turned off the light, just had the TV as a light. She asked for a bottle. I gave her 5oz. She drank it. She’d had 5oz at 7. So that’s 10oz. That’s not like her. She must be having a growth spurt. She fell asleep on my lap on the sofa. So I left her. Brett turned up at 11:30. I woke her by accident when I got up to open the door when he knocked. She was so happy to see him. She was all over him like a rash. It was good to see because sometimes she really nonchalant about him lol
We put her back to bed then we watched some tele together. It was great just being there together. I think we went to sleep at like half 2!
Saturday Scarlett woke up at 8:30. I took her down to have her bottle. She watched some tele. We did some singing (wind the bobbin up). At 10 we went up and woke Brett up. I made breakfast. Scarlett loves porridge (or as she calls it “orridge”). He put her up for a nap. We watched some more Elementary. She woke up at 2ish. We got dressed and went to town for lunch. We went to Poppins cafe. We love it there. Scarlett had turkey dinosaurs, chips and peas. I had a chicken burger and chips. Brett had the all day breakfast. Mom had the mayo chicken baguette. Scarlett ate loads. My mom left as she was going to her boyfriends for the day/night. We went into the card factory as I needed to buy a few birthday cards. I’ve got a few friends toddler’s birthdays coming up in January and February. Plus my dad and Brett’s mom. And Scarlett (although I’ve already bought her card). So I went into the shop and Brett wandered with Scarlett. When I was done we went into Sainsbury’s. We got a movie to watch later plus he wanted some E45 bath stuff for his skin. We paid and then got on the bus to Home.
As we’d had a late lunch I didn’t plan on doing dinner until about 7. Usually Scarlett’s in bed by then but it’s a weekend and she was up late so I thought Ah Fuck It. So Brett had a bath at half 5. Scarlett and I chilled. My nan was making pies. I love her pies. She agreed to drop the first 2 round so we could have them for dinner. They were still hot (fresh out of the oven) so we had pie for dinner at 7:30. After dinner Brett bathed Scarlett whilst I put her washing away. She had her bottle then she went to bed at 9:30. That’s late for her but she went straight to sleep. We got into bed and watched Bridget Jones’s Baby. Brett actually liked the film though I doubt he’d ever admit it haha
Today she didn’t wake until at least half 9. I didn’t actually hear her until almost 10. She never cries or calls out. She just lays in her cot singing or she’ll get her book from the side and “read”. So I didn’t stir until her singing was louder on the monitor. I brought her in bed with us. I woke Brett up. He watched her whilst I nipped down to do her bottle. She had 8oz (I hate leaving a bit in the bottom of the carton so I poured it all out). She actually drank it all.
We went downstairs and I made her some breakfast. Porridge again lol she ate then she played with Brett. We watched some TV. He took her up for a nap at 1ish. We put on his Conor McGregor dvd. God I hate that Irish twat. But Brett likes him so I tolerated. Brett went up at 3:45 and woke Scarlett up. She was unamused but she can’t sleep all day. We watched some more Elementary and she played. He got his stuff together at 5 and then left to go home. His train was at 6. I put some dinner on at 6ish. We ate at 6:30. FaceTimed my mom then bath by 7ish. Bottle at 7:30. She wouldn’t drink much at first. She was trying to hang out bedtime lol she eventually went to bed at 8:15 but didn’t actually go to sleep until 9. She’s so funny. She was laid in her cot singing to herself and playing with her teletubbies. And she had the photo of her and Brett. She fell asleep holding it. So cute!
I watched Vera at 8 followed by 2 episodes of Elementary. I’ve almost finished season 5. What am I going to do with my life when it’s finished?
I tried to book our Sun Holiday today but they’ve changed how priority people can book so I’ve got to wait until tomorrow. How annoying. We’ve picked 4 sites around Weymouth/Poole area. So hopefully we get one of those. Will book it in the morning.
Back to work tomorrow. My work trousers are clean, I have food for lunch and Scarlett’s outfit for Nursery is laid out so I feel slightly organised lol
