It’s getting to the point where I can actually leave Lauren sleeping in bed and get back up again – recently I’ve been taking a book to bed and just reading as she’ll often wake a few times before she settles in for her first decent sleep, or just because I’m knackered and need an early night. Normally I shut down my computer because I know that’s it for the night for me.
Not the case these days! Scarily, Lauren sleeps on, regardless of whether I’m there or not (for an hour or two anyways). Last night I got back up and wondered what on earth to do with my time. It felt strange, and it’s going to take some getting used to.
I could spend more time with my husband, take the dog out for a walk, go see a movie, write some more, watch TV, or any number of other things. It just feels so odd to have that freedom though – I’ve forgotten what it was I used to spend my nights doing.
It’s still early days, and I know that she won’t sleep like that every single night from now on, but it’s the beginning of a new phase for me. Exciting times, once I get used to it anyways 😉
