|Sorry about his mucky face - I didn't want to upset him by washing it.|
Honestly you have no idea what a difference this is. I should of totally done a blog on how our boots & bar normally goes. Hugo has been having the craziest of tantrums. You know how hard it is to change a babies nappy? times it by 10!

|Happy Boy Wearing his Boots & Bar|
I really hope this wasn't a one off.
The naughty germs must be doing their rounds again Emilyn has just gotten over a cold runny nose bad cough nothing too serious... Then Hugo all of a sudden gets a streaming nose every sneeze blows out all the snotty bogeys I've ever seen! I knew tonight would be a bad night but I didn't think it would be as bad as it has been & it's only 1am!
We managed to get him to bed by 7pm wearing his boots & bar too !
But by 8pm he was making the odd moan & so I went in to check on him, it was obvious he was struggling to breath. We kept an eye on him but it wasn't long before he was fully crying & asking for a 'duddle' - cuddle.
Luckily Daddy was watching 'Boop Ball' foot ball so Hugo although half asleep on daddy's chest started to watch 'BoopBall' too..
9:30pm I decided I needed to go to bed I took Hugo with me cuddled up with him in our bed he kept drifting in & out of sleep.
Around 10:30pm Hugo started getting really agitated he started mumbling something about bugs I tried to ignore him but he kept saying 'bugs bugs mummy bugs'
He was begging me for 'duddles' & non stop talking about bugs...
I noticed he must be hallucinating when he was cuddling me but repeatingly asking his 'Mummy. Mummy.' Starting to cry...'mummy!' He had no idea who I was... He was petrified to top that off he then got so scared about the non existent bugs he wouldn't let go of me he was fighting to cling hold of me.
I thought this was the time to get him in the bath to try & cool him off...
I used to Hallucinate when I was little I would have a repeating dream of little men like the borrowers urghh I hate hallucinating you wake up from the nightmare open your eyes & the nightmare is still going it always felt 110% realistic. I remember my Hallucinating like it was yesterday yet I must of been about 4 or 5 years old if that ...
After some Calpol & a cool bath Hugo has calmed down & we are now sat on the sofa watching Cars the Disney film. I'm exhausted. Yawn....
A Day on my own? No children, No Husband (He's at work) ; & it's a Bank Holiday Monday.
Am I the most awful Mother to actually be happy to have a full day on my own, With no Major plans.?
Yes I'm missing out on a Family day out, The children have gone to the village steam fair with their Grandparents. I could of gone. But I chose to stay home & take advantage of some extremely rare 'me time' I physically can't remember the last time I had a day with no babies.? Well over a year without a doubt.
So my plans for today are :
Washed & hung out clothes.
Took a trip to Homebase *Annoyingly they hadn't got the paint I needed in stock.
Took a trip to Tesco's
|Putting clothes out to dry : Boring!|
Well I'm now at home relaxing with a coffee & once I've done this blog post I'm going to try & do nothing for the rest of the day....
This is going to sound bizarre but I really struggle to rest,
Since I was diagnosed with M.E back in 2003 I then went on to literally spending 3-4 years in bed day & night. It was HELL. The thought of ever going back to that scares me. So any time that I rest I get really agitated...
I've got so much to do.
- Blog Reviews... *They will get done.
- Furniture that needs Upcycling
- My own furniture I need to paint.
- Chairs that need to be waxed
- Emails that need to be sent Regarding Bear wearing boots & bar
- My Book work needs to be done too!
I will try & rest. I've been living with a dull headache for the last month. *This is what happens when I over do it.
I just find being 'lazy' really BORING! - I know I need to be 'lazy' RESTING every now & again.
I also understand the next time I get treated to having a child free day will probably be next year.
So I'm going to sign off my Mac & do nothing for the rest of the day... I hope.
|Hello foot! -|
|Putting the curtains up.|
|One side done!|
|All finished ! Hello ME!|
|Storage hidden - TADA!|
|This is NOT the actual book : Talipes Boots & Bar book|
It will no doubt turn into a HUGE life line for us
I read the sketched book to Emilyn & Hugo tonight: their first time at hearing it...
They absolutely LOVED it! Plus Hugo went to sleep really well.
I totally understand this isn't going to make me millions nor do I want that. I just feel it would be a huge accomplishment to have it done. To help others dealing with the boots & bar stage especially when their children get to Hugo's age & they start saying "NO" to Boots & Bar.
Hugo loved this book It connected to him, This is exactly what I wanted. Emilyn & Hugo actually got Excited about the book. Whilst I was reading it to them they were getting involved :
The book starts with
"It was almost time for Baby to go to bed,
Hopefully It wont be too much longer & you'll be able to buy a copy for yourself.
You'll also be OVER THE MOON to hear - My little Bear wearing Boots & Bar is also in progress!
I'll keep you all updated.
