Sick Child Means No Sleep!

Sometimes with my blog I like to take time out on all the scheduled posts and give a little life update, because lets face it, that’s what blogging used to be about, sitting down and updating those who follow you about daily life and anything in-between and so I have been mildly afk due to some life stuff I thought it would be a good idea to shed some light on why I haven’t done much in the case of writing and blogging, hell even my twitter and instagram have taken a beating.


This week has been one of the hardest I’ve dealt with lately, for the past two or three weeks, I’ve honestly lost count, Robin hasn’t been eating properly.. we’ve offered her food but she has this new thing of throwing whatever we’ve offered her onto the floor and then when she did eat something, it hasn’t been the most healthiest of things but to add to the stress, shes also had a horrific cold and those with children will understand that when one child has a cold, the parents suffer the most.

I cannot remember the day this all started, all I know is that this is the first time in a long while that I have almost passed out in a car journey back from food shopping on thursday evening.. I feel like a sick toddler is harder than a newborn, because lets face it, newborns will happily go back to sleep once they have been dealt with and the mornings arent as bad.. because you could just put the newborn back into its bed and it will let you have a few extra minutes of peace.

..a two year old however.. will throw her toys at you or scream at you if you so much as touch your head to the pillow, we’ve co-shared the bed, we’ve been tough and told her to go back to sleep but its now at the point where bedtime or.. I guess night time is a big struggle and its actually caused me to really judge my ability of being a mother and really push my sanity to its limits and while it has been difficult, I have tried to look at it all with a positive outlook, I have been getting lots of cuddles of Robin and while I haven’t done much writing on the actual blog I have so many ideas written down for lots of posts for the month of May which I am hoping to get written and posted once her routine goes back to normal and thankfully because of her being poorly Mr S has been doing the school runs for me allowing me to not have to get makeup on and let my skin breath a little…

Funny how a few sick days can sometimes be a little curse as well a blessing.. and with a better nights sleep my brain is feeling a lot less fuzzy and Robin is feeling better in herself, back to her demonic little self!

Which in turn hopefully means that next week will be the most productive week yet!

until next time

    Sorry you’ve had a bad time! I hope the sleeping gets better, I couldn’t think of anything worse. My Theodore hasn’t gotten sick yet (fingers crossed)… I dread the idea of the sleepless nights and fussiness!
    Much love, Caitylis x x

    Sounds like you guys have been through the mill a bit! Sending you lots of love and positive vibes for both you and Robin! x

    I can relate to feeling stressed when your little one won’t eat, it happens to us far too often when Ru is teething! At least she is on the mend!

  15. May 8, 2018 / 10:07 pm

    I feel for you both, it’s definetly hard when they are ill. Especially when all the want is mummy. This was a brilliant and honest post!

    The exhaustion completely takes over when your child is sick – with no warning. I hope she’s feeling better!

    we just took our little guy to the drs today and he has an ear infection! and a cough. Agreed sick toddlers are definitely harder then newborns. Not only can they not tell you whats wrong, but they don’t understand.
