Dear Olive,
Things feel a bit on top of me today. I got angry at you at 3am last night and it's left me feeling like a mean and shitty Mum. You certainly didn't deserve it but after the past couple of weeks of your Best Ever Sleeping Phase (of only waking up once a night - once!), the past four nights have thrown me off completely. Thrown me back to the tireds. I think today might even be the one year anniversary of this little blog of ours. I had grand plans of unveiling a snazzy new header, maybe staging a giveaway. But, alas, these celebrations I have not organised. Can we just pretend our anniversary is next week? In the meantime, here's our ever expanding spoon collection. It includes one from your Dads old band (rock n roll, right) and one he received as a birthday gift from his great friend who we just lost to Melbourne (come back Trace).

Don't forget you're human, and sleep deprivation is a killer. I'm sure Olive doesn't hold it against you. I know it's even harder now that you're back at work, I'm not looking forward to that.
You're a good mum, you just need some rest.

Happy 1st Birthday Dear Olive! But lets celebrate properly next week...

re the sleeping thing - I hope I didn't jinx you in my email! It must be even harder to deal with after having a good stint!

That Side Winder teaspoon is bad ass!

oh yes. i've been cross in the night. doesn't make you a bad mum. just a mum! hard when they go from sleeping well and you think you've cracked it, to a few bad nights. could be anything, teething, growth spurt, whatever. so tell us more about sidewinder. i'm envisaging hard rock and big hair, but i'm guessing you're not that old! x

happy anniversary! love your blog. be kind to yourself. lack of sleep, crappy sleep, interrupted sleep is the pits. get up tomorrow, make yourself a cuppa and say to yourself "i fucking rock!" . you're a great mama & anyone who can get on with things when they're sleep deprived rocks!

Happy 1st Anniversary to a wonderful blog! Yes, please go easy on yourself--Olive forgets easier than you do... (i have had those moments, too--regrettable moments-many, actually) we are only human--sometimes super human-yes--but mostly human. You are not alone. wicked cool spoons, too!!!!

Happy 1 Dear Olive. I'm so,so glad I found your wonderful blog! Were dealing with same thing re night waking. Ever since I returned from London. Prior to that we were on a good wicket too. Please don't give yourself too much schtick. You're working full-time AND you're a (wonderful) mama. Nuff said. xx

Don't worry we can celebrate again when you're ready. Cake and a cuppa you say? I'll take mine with one sugar and I'll use the Sidewinder spoon thanks xxx
