This week has really taken it’s toll on the boys especially Oliver. They are all tired and it is showing! They all still have a week left at school before they break for the Easter holidays and they have begun to flounce! Sunday was the clock change went forward so we lost an hour and boy we felt the loss. Bedtime Sunday night was met with “but it’s daytime”, “it’s not night time the sun is still out” Arthur wasn’t the worst it was Ollie. He really struggled with going to sleep and a week on and we still are struggling. Big time!
Late night party
On Tuesday Oliver was invited to a friend’s birthday party. Actually it was 2 friends and it didn’t start until 6pm! I really hate midweek later parties but can totally understand the parents reasons why! it`s cheap! (and no doubt it will be us holding the midweek late party soon) Oliver usually goes to bed at 6.30 but he was really excited to go so we let him. He loved it and although he was bouncing off the walls whilst he was there once home he calmed down. He was happy to have a wash, brush teeth and change into Pj’s to go to bed. I think the tiredness was just setting in. But the easy bedtime was too be the last one this week! Every night since we have had evening battles with him!
Oliver had another late night on Thursday due to their school disco. He finished by 5.30 but we lost track off time at his friends house and by the time he came home, washed and eaten something it was close to 8pm. It was his best friends birthday so Oliver made him a card with a polar bear on, his favourite animal.
Weekend of more madness!!
Weekend we celebrated my nephew’s 16th Birthday which meant another late one! We went out for dinner and due to a last minute change Mark looked after all the boys plus our little nephew Mason. Whilst me and my sister Tasha went to try the Thinking Out The Box Escape Rooms! It was gone 8pm by the time all the boys went to bed!
I really hope Oliver starts to go back to sleep at an appropriate time! All these late nights are really starting to take its toll! he is argumentative! Shouty and all he needs is a good old sleep!
One week in and how is your clock change experience?
