So much to say so little sleep

I know I am long overdue for an update. I have a lot to say but literally no time to say it.

The Ms have moved into big kid beds and it has proven to be a curse of night time for Michael and I. Bedtime struggles are at an all time high. Sleep is at an all time low. I thought it couldn't get any worse but yet it has.

On the up side: we had a lovely Thanksgiving with my BFF and her husband. I enjoyed a very rare day at the spa and very enjoyable company. Max and Madeleine love their Auntie Marsfa and Unca Ted to pieces. Thanks for a great weekend.

On the leggie side: we should have the new leg in about two weeks. Greg made Madeleine a test leg or 'practice' leg today. We tried it out and I think that Madeleine will very much like her new leg. It is so much thinner and so much less "baby".

I'd love to write more but I am just too weary.

Sorry to hear about the sleep. We have been delaying the inevitable move to beds as I am terrified of the scenario you describe. Is it wrong to keep your kids in cribs until age 5??? I'm just saying...

Anna, we would have kept them in their cribs except they were climbing out of them. So, we couldn't get them to stay in bed anyway. Also, they slept terribly in them. At least now Madeleine asks to go to her 'big kid' bed and take a nap. She doesn't usually nap though.

Hang in there with the sleep. It is SO hard but you will get through this!! I wish you nights full of sleep- both kids and adults alike!

Oh lordy...the Big Bed Saga. We switched the girls at the beginning of the summer...and it took what seemed like months to get them settled. Do have a couple of tips if you're interested....

Niki I am so sorry to hear about your sleep deprivation, seriously there is nothing worse. I will keep my fingers crossed that it improves with time. Paddy and Georgie also started climbing out of their cots, little minx's!!!!
