It's 5...in the morning! Lili is slowly driving me crazy. She has woken a total of 13 times during the night. I have left her in the room to fall asleep by herself. I should have done it at 3am instead.
At 4am Aarahi contemplated staying home from work for the day. He starts at 5am. in the end he went to work but is going to come home early. He sat with me and listened to me complain about my frustrations with Lili's sleeping. He say's she's as stubborn as her mother. He's right, if she doesn't want to sleep she wont go to sleep no matter what you do.
I gave in and went and got Lili out of bed. Now she's sitting up on the couch with me. She was all noise and no tears but I didn't want to risk her waking up Auron. I need him at his best today!
Yesterday Auron was so excited when I got out the suitcases. Once it was packed up he wanted to "doooh" (go). We ended up having to take the suitcase to the shopping centre with us. He was upset we weren't going to the airport. That's when I realised we travel too much.
Aarahi took both the kids with him to youth mutual last night so I could finish everything. It is amazing how much you can get done when you don't have little hands trying to help. The house is clean, bags all packed, washing folded, dinners frozen in the freezer for Aarahi while I am away. He is quite capable of cooking his own meals, it's more for my own peace of mind knowing that he has something good to eat. Otherwise he would eat cereal every day. Which he would be quite happy about. Cereal, cereal and more cereal. He's easy to please.
