I wrote, quite a few months ago now, about how solo parenting sucks. I wrote it when our family of four was still a fairly new thing and doing the dinner, bath and bed routine by myself was a horrendous experience. Since then a lot has changed. We no longer have bathtimes when Dave isn’t
Little Man is now a month away from his very first Birthday. A whole 11 months of having him in our lives and it really feels like he’s been here forever.
Little Man had the worst sleep in months whilst we were on holiday. He woke frequently, needed a lot of night feeds and spent long periods of each night crying. It was very unlike him and I’ve put it down to teething and maybe being slightly under the weather. We spent the week exhausted but

I wrote back in September about how awful I found solo parenting evenings, how it was too hard to juggle everything and I couldn’t be everywhere at once. Little Man’s bedtime coincided with LP’s dinner and trying
