I am sorry to tell you that the night before last was a one off! If you have read my previous post you will know that Bob slept for 9 hours on Wednesday night for the first time ever! There wasn’t even a gradual build up. She went from struggling to manage 3 hours sleep to sleeping through.
I knew that it was too early to get my hopes up but there was a small part of me that couldn’t help getting excited! I imagined lovely sleepy nights! Something that has been the product of my daydreams for the past 20 months!
When we put Bob to bed last night my husband and I were very hopeful! She went to sleep quickly and seemed settled. We soon realised that we were being optimistic. It was as if the previous night had been imagined!
Of course I am disappointed but it has also given me a glimmer of hope. Before Wednesday I honestly thought that Bob was allergic to sleep. Now I know that she can sleep for 9 hours and I am hopeful that she will do it again. As the popular song goes, ‘Always look on the bright side of night!’
It’s a good job she’s gorgeous!
