What we did at the weekend 010

So things were a little sparse around these parts last week. Sorry Mum. Last week was filled with snot (Henry’s), very little sleep, tears (mainly mine at 2am) and shouting (Henry from his bed after I dared leave him alone for a second on the many occasions he was clearly faking sleep). Henry thankfully seems to be on the mend and I’m now feeling marginally refreshed after having a co-parent for the weekend.
But I’m feeling a little behind in the blogging world. After posting Monday-Friday since I took up this little hobby, I’ve now decided that it’s a bit much, as in I’m running out of things to talk about. And some nights it’s nice to spend the evening watching Coronation Street. So I’m now aiming for 2-3 times a week, a little more do-able when my normally routine is thrown off by a newborn-esqe sleep pattern.
Anyway, I don’t have much to report as the weekend was all about recovery. Saturday began with a much needed lie in which meant I felt significantly more like a functioning human.
On Sunday, after a slightly better nights sleep (albeit the result of 3 in a bed) Henry and I retreated downstairs. Last week I bought him his second ‘That’s not my…’ book in an attempt to occupy him in the supermarket. He’s now finally showing an interest in books again after becoming mobile and refusing to sit still long enough for me to get through a page, and is now looking at them rather than solely attempting to consume them – I’ll skip past the fact that there’s a large chunk missing from a page in ‘That’s Not My Puppy’ – so we read together, played and when he was tired had a cuddle and a nap on the sofa. After a tough mum week it was nice to enjoy him again, rather than being at my wits end with exhaustion and feeling like a terrible mother. But we all have those weeks – amiright?!
We then went to my mums for lasagne before coming home for a chilled evening and an early night.
How was your weekend? More exciting than mine?

    A blissful weekend after a busy poorly week. Think it’s cold season, my son is being a pain in the behind recently and I’m looking forward to him feeling better so I can enjoy him again too!! Thanks for linking up to #familyfun

    Oh we so do all have those weeks. Sorry to hear it was a toughy but I am glad you are all feeling better now and hope next week will be an improvement. Sounds like the weekend was just what the doctor ordered too, chilled out ones can be just the ticket. Thanks for sharing at #familyfun xx
