This is getting ridiculous, how am I supposed to function on such little sleep? I can’t even get angry with Daisy at the moment because 1. I don’t have the energy and 2. she is in cloud cuckoo land, a completely different world to me (some would disagree)!
I won’t bore you with how many times she woke last night but suffice to say we were sat downstairs at 4.30, Daisy grinning and still manic, me, in Zombie state! I thought adding a little bit of anti-psychotic to her evening meds would help (they are prescribed, I don’t just buy from a dodgy site) but no difference noted……..her brain is a law unto itself.
Morning routine runs smoothly. Off to school and work we go.
I’ve had a difficult day in work due to the overwhelming need to sleep so I prepare Daisy’s tea and wait for her transport to bring her home…….I have 15 minutes to go, my eyes are closing……. the doorbell rings and I dart off the sofa – I never fall asleep but believe me I needed that 15 minute snooze…….bring it on Roo (pet name for Daisy)
Daisy seems less confused and does eat her tea even though each mouthful I feed her is followed by her putting her big toe in her mouth and chewing it! This is a game she loves, I have to wriggle her toe out of her tooth’s clamp between spoonfuls, not nice when it’s covered in cottage pie.
I was a little sad reading Roo’s school annual Governors report that was sent home in her bag this evening. Apparently 90% of pupils met their reading targets this year. This is a special school for children with severe learning difficulties, reading this report hits home – Daisy is clearly in the other 10%! Exceptionally Special in a Special School, typical.
I’m hopeful she will sleep better tonight. I’m considering getting so plastered that I won’t pay any attention to her if she wakes but I guess I’d better not, I will still need to care for her come the morning and its not nice with a hangover, believe me, not nice at all.
