This week James has been telling me he’s tired during the day. In the car he wants the seat back so he’s reclined. So bedtimes have been quite easy, relatively speaking.
On Thursday we had the end of an era – James fell asleep in his bed without me lying next to him. We have cuddled to sleep since he stopped breastfeeding to sleep. I have been next to him every night he’s fallen asleep since he was born. Gosh.
I don’t know if he’ll return to needing a cuddle at some point in the future, but perhaps he’s growing up. *sniff*!
On Monday we read a rather long winded story called Go Tell It To The Toucan.
An elephant remembers that it’s her birthday and she tells an animal (I forget who) to tell the toucan so that the toucan will tell everybody and they can have a jamboree. The animal tells another animal, who tells someone else, and eventually everyone knows there will be a party. The toucan ends up being the last creature to hear about the party but gets credited with telling the others. Anyway, it’s not a book I enjoyed reading, but Rob has read it a few times for James. Read it again rating is about a 1/5.
On Tuesday we read Where Are You Blue Kangaroo? which is part of the Blue Kangaroo series.
This is one of my favourite photos of James as a baby.
On Wednesday we read Goldilocks and the Three Bears. James was so tired that I just told him the story in the dark in his bedroom while he fell asleep.
Thursday’s book was My Dad by Anthony Browne.
On Friday James had playgroup and came home shattered. I made up a story about a policeman while he fell asleep in bed again.
Saturday’s book was Sheep in a Jeep.
We had a bit of a funny week this week with bedtime stories, hopefully next week we’ll be back to normal!
