Sleepy, sleepy, sleepy.

I have never been a great sleeper. It probably started when my mum worked shifts and didn’t come home till 10pm. I would come home from school, make myself something to eat and eventually fall asleep far too early while watching TV.
Then my mum would come home, I would wake up and we would talk about our day and chat about this and that, then she would go to bed, ready to do it all again tomorrow. Problem was, I had already slept.
This developed into a terrible sleeping plan, that included always falling asleep with the TV on, watching baseball on channel 5 till 4am and generally knackered my sleep clock for the rest of my life.

So, its nice to see, that Benjamin seems to have inherited Christine’s sleep clock. He loves his sleep.
At nearly 1 year old, he sleeps pretty well MOST nights. He naps at roughly the same times during the day and sleeps from around 7:30pm to 7:00am without too much waking.

So, just as I am about to go to bed, I see that Christine has added some photo’s to her facebook pictures of Benjamin and it prompted me to write this post. Mostly because I love the pictures and I am sure all who read this have their own version of this little gallery…

 Have you got pictures like this, or is The Mrs, just crazy?

Thanks for reading!


  1. Oh this style of photo seems familiar, I have about 100 of each child just sleeping in poses that I think are cute at the time. Then I go too far, get the flash on, wake the child and regret my actions.
