Another horrendous night – Eli woke at around 1.30am and it went downhill from there. At around 3am I went downstairs and he settled (and I dozed) until about 4.30am but then the screaming started and so I headed back to the bedroom to avoid waking the other kids.
R left me to sleep in the morning and took the big kids to swimming lessons by himself leaving Eli and I to rest which has definitely helped. After swimming the kids were desperate to go to Nana’s so they all headed off there – extra peace, bliss! The screaming fits have been non-existant, fingers crossed for actual sleep tonight.
