Winners!

Saturday, 15 March 2014: Three Hundred and Forty Eight Days Old.

Our house is full of winners today!!

Hubby won his charity boxing fight, our babysitter won our trust and Baby Ayla won yet another gold star from her Mum and Dad.

It was fantastic to have a stress- free adult night out with our friends, even though it didn’t quite start out like that!

The babysitter turned up 5 mins early and we took her through Ayla’s dinner, her bedtime routine and most importantly, how to use the TV.

We all moved out the front to wait for a taxi we’d booked the day before but it never came.

As the clocked ticked closer and closer to the event starting time and Hubby got more and more anxious, we made nearly ten calls to the company who kept sending us new taxis, to no avail.

After half an hour of waiting we asked the babysitter to drive us and within seconds we were all bundled into my little hatch heading to the fight.

We arrived and jumped out of the car, gave Ayla a kiss and told her to be good then waved as the babysitter drove off in my car with our baby in the back!

I figured if I could do that then I had nothing much else to worry about for the night, and I was right!!

The babysitter text as soon she got back to our house, and then again when Ayla went to sleep around 8pm, just like normal.

Knowing that Ayla was safe at home, tucked up in bed, meant I was free to cheer Hubby on til I was hoarse!

We came home around 11.30pm and Ayla had just woken up. We found her cuddling into the babysitter on the couch, which meant we got to give her proper goodnight kisses and cuddles.

It was a great night.

Bedtime fight

Friday, 6 September 2013: One Hundred and Fifty Nine Days Old

Ayla and I had our first bedtime fight last night, and it was a doozy!

We were in a battle of wits, Ayla and I. She wanted to sleep in my arms and I wanted her in her bed.

Every time I put her down she’d start crying. I tried every trick in the book and I even googled “getting a five month old baby to sleep” but there was no new information to help me.

The 20 minute cry-cuddle-go down-cry fiasco continued over and over… For three hours.

It’s seems it may have just been once off though (touch wood) because its 8 o’clock and she’s out for the count.
