Flossie has a friend to stay
My friend Charlotte and I were both on our own for the night with no available babysitters so decided to combine our situation and have a girls night in at my house. It can get realy hard (when you are trying to keep to a routine with your little ones) emotionally, especially if your partner works away or does evening shifts. It can be lonely and before you know it you are in bed at 9pm... as Jon always says "Kids don't change your life!" haha!
We went to the Dyke pub and kitchen for dinner and then walked them back to get them worn out. They sang the whole way which also resulted in squeals of laughter. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with love for Florence and her close friends you just want to burst, a passer-by stopped me and said how absolutely gorgeous they were.
When we got home I ran them a bath which for the first time that week Florence got in without me having to persuade/bribe/argue with her. Kids love having joint baths!
Then at 7.30 we put them to bed and they were fast asleep by 8pm! I am going to put this down to a one-off because if they are anything like me and Charlotte when we were little we stayed up for hours chatting!
Charlotte and I cracked open the fizz and had time to have a good catch up which was so lovely, the girls each woke up once but settled straight back to sleep. I highly recommend this for all mummies. Beats long nights alone any day!
The girls were very excited when they got up together, I made them both some breakfast and they cuddled up together on the sofa - so sweet.
Sleepovers are the way forward girls!!!
