The first signs of spring are usually the evenings becoming lighter, warmer mornings, Daffodils coming into flower but this year we had a new one. The sound of silence at 3am as the twins both decided to sleep through the night for the first time!
Having bought a Euro Millions lottery ticket the night before when I got up at 6.30 to help out I was greeted by K with a huge smile across her face I had to ask “Don’t tell me we have won the f**king lottery?”. “No …..but the next best thing!”
Indeed the next best thing. As the sun returns to the early mornings so does the possibility of normal sleep patterns returning to the house. The chance of both of us having 7 hours uninterrupted sleep, no fumbling for bottles half asleep and losing count of the number of scoops you have put in, no sniffing nappies in the middle of the night to see if they need a change, no searching for the tiny Infacol bottle under power of nightlight only. I could go on.
The next best thing to winning the lottery. I think so.
Next step teething……………..
