Is this crazy? I have some friends who take their same aged daughter out to restaurants etc and have her sleep in the buggy. Or if she doesn’t sleep, well, she just stays awake. I wonder if because of our long lasting sleep issues that we have not been the kind of easy going parents we hoped we would be. I’ve become addicted to the bedtime routine, hoping that it helps the Imp to sleep, but have we become a slave to it? Do I feel like throwing caution to the wind and taking the Imp out to the loveliest restaurant, staying up past all our bedtimes?
I’d love to go out at night and leave my partner with the Imp. But usually I go to bed at 9pm. I’m scared if I stay up later, that will be the night the Imp decides to wake up every hour again.
Sigh, have I gotten boring?
