"He'll be so tired once he starts school" they said.
Nearly 3 years later and we still have sleep issues.
At least he can read or draw in bed now, but some nights he's still up 2 hours later unable to go to sleep.
And then some nights he's up in the night, scared to be on his own so I often just crawl into bed with him. Problem is, his bed is FULL. Not only am I sharing a bed with a wrigglesome child, there are reading books, an A4 sketchbook, sheets of paper and a clipboard, pencils and rubbers, torches, a lamp, a tissue box and a whole selection of cuddly toys - like some kind of weird nest.
Fortunately, I am too tired to care and sleep takes over, thankfully for him too.
