a Dad’s perspective

Just because Sue does all the nightfeeds and running to and fro when Lucas kicks off, doesn’t mean I don’t do my share. Although monkey number one was ‘cracked’ shortly before the birth of monkey number two, he too, still has his moments. Last night was one of those moments. 45 minutes of sheer tantrum (including slapping and kicking – Fe, not me). Nothing could console him so not sure if it was a nightmare or he had a temperature or whatever. Brought back some bad memories and also the thought that things can go pear shaped at ANY time – so don’t get complacent. And DON’T take that sleep for granted.
