Fab n Funky DT - Christmas for the Kids

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all well and staying warm. Or, at least feeling a lot better than I do,lol. Right now, I have the headache from H%$£ and am absolutely exhausted! Infact, as soon as I have posted this card, I am off for a snooze. My four year old has always been what some people would class "difficult"...SPOILT in my own professional opinion. And me, well, I am far from the most patient person...especially when I am not getting enough sleep!!! Steven never eats, sleeps or talks. He manages to survive on the least amount of sleep and food possible and this is probably the reason for the constant squealing (like a stuck pig) rather than talking. I think I can count on one hand the number of full nights sleep I have had in the past 4 years - honestly! So, last night, he says he's had enough tea...half an hour later he is squealing - he's hungry! reheat the dinner, feed him the whole lot and get ready for bed - whilst listening to him moaning and crying about going to grandads and his toy car keys that he can't find, etc, etc. He is obviously exhausted so, read his story and get him into bed - at roughly 8 o clock, possibly just before 8. Only to listen to him screaming for 3 hours... His bed is itchy, Jack's making the bunk beds move, he's too hot, he's too cold, he wants to go to grandads...need I go on??? He eventually falls asleep at about 11pm - you think that's it, don't you? NO...1 am - "MUM"! This went on for 3 hours and he finally drops off again at 4am - only to awaken again at 8.15am!!

Sorry for going on but I think I am seriously ready for the loony bin (mad house). And, there is no school today!!

Anyway, on a much happier note...It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at Fab n Funky. This weeks theme is 'Christmas for the Kids' and we have a fab sponsor again this week so be sure and stop by the challenge blog to check it out. The challenge will be posted a little later as we need to give all the girls time to sort out the winners of their blog candy. And don't forget to visit all the rest of the DT girls and see their fantastic work too.
