Yet again nearly 10pm by the time we are sitting down in the evening. Bedtime seems to roll on for hours at the moment between the baby and Lola’s unwillingness to sleep.
I think she mainly has trouble switching off. She dresses it up with ‘I’m scared of the dark’ and ‘Monsters under the bed’ but I know that kid is scared of nothing. She wants to be down here taking sneaky sips of beer (which we of course put a stop to double quick time) and watching cbeebies on the iplayer.
One or the other of us has to lie in bed with her to stop her running about. Thing is, she repeatedly tells us to go away! Just so she can have the opportunity to tell us she’s scared. I will never understand it!
I’ve tried all sorts to ‘wind her down’, like no sugar, no TV, lavender baths, massage… Nothing works!
