Monsters in the dark!

Cherise is no longer sleeping in her room as there is "monsters" under her bed that just doesn't want to leave.

I am out of ideas trying to get her out of our room. I even tryed sending the "monster" with her grandma, she agreed that they were all in the car but when its dark she just refuses to sleep in her room. Turning on a light doesn't help.

Jean-Marie reached another milestone yesterday. She crawled on all 4's for the first time.

Previously she dragged herself on her arms towards the object she wanted.

Spring Day

Cherise's pre-school are holding their annual spring day. They have to wear a spring day hat and are going to have a picnic on the rugby veld of the primary school. She is so looking forward to friday. I already packet her picnic basket - the food will come friday morning. Being in pre-school she has learned a lot of good and bad habits - one being impatient.

Sleeping pattern

I must say getting enough sleep is becoming a big priority in my life as I am not getting enough. Cherise is sleeping much better since she moved out of our room, but Jean-Marie is the big screamer. She will start waking up from 11h00 and scream. I started giving her a bottle to sooth her but at 03h00 in the morning she just doesn't want it anymore. Just when I think I can not take another sleepless night Jean-Marie will sleep right through. Parenting is such a pleasure sometimes!
