We are having a stage where Ash doesn’t want to go to bed. At 830 or even later we are still struggling to settle him. On Friday after a rather long period of going up and down the stairs, I finally lay down with him to see if he’d go off to sleep with me there with him. After a while, I had an idea. Neither of my children took to teddy bears or comfort blankets, but you never know, as they grow older this could change.
So I asked him if he’d like a special teddy to hug. Yes he did. So off I went to find one of mine that I’d kept. ”Best ted” was given to me by my grandmother when I was born. He’s pretty special. Ash thinks so too. Half an hour later, he was fast asleep, and I could capture these: (yes I got teary)
