Take one 2 year old with Chicken Pox.
Add a husband away with work in Germany.
Just for the fun of it, make him a husband STUCK in Germany with Chicken Pox. Not allowed to travel until no longer contagious.
Subtract all chances of a decent sleep. For days and days.
Add in a 4 year old who cannot cope with change and things being different and therefore reacts badly to everything.
Multiply by four dreadful bedtimes / nights.
Divide by the amount of space the 2 year old leaves when sharing my bed.
Multiply by 2 oat baths a day everyday for a week.
Add in some Calpol starting to work at 11.30pm. [See Video evidence here.]
Equals = Me. Broken. Worried. Stressed. Exhausted.
I really should be asleep but I just needed an hour to myself. Here’s hoping we are back to normal by next weekend.
