To put DD in nursery for the morning

I'm utterly shattered.

Woke at 2am yesterday after 4 hours broken sleep. Busy all day then went to work last night. Got home for 9pm.

Fell asleep at 11pm. Woke 24 times with DD between then and 4:30am (night terrors, too hot, too cold).

And been up since then.

WIBU to call the nursery to see if they can fit her in today so I can catch up on sleep?.

DD is tired and grouchy, I'm tired and grouchy.

Do you need to ask?

Of course YANBU.

Do it.

If they can take her I think you could dfinitely do with a rest and the distraction of nursery will do he good too. Look after yourself

God I would. Have a break from each other, you catch up on sleep or whatever and pick her up later all bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Definitely see if they can take her. Hopefully she'll have an amazing nap this afternoon for you too!

If they have the space, although won't your DD be pretty tired too? Any chance she will sleep in the morning, it tends to be cooler? My youngest would but eldest never runs out of energy.

There's no way she'll nap. She doesn't unless she's ill.

But I'll have to ask my dad to take her though as I don't think I'm safe to drive - Struggling to keep my eyes open.

but you need to do something about her waking you up so much!

lifeofdino Tue 26-Jul-16 07:11:21

I'd put he in for the whole day rather than just the morning (money and space allowing of course...).

Definitely send her to nursery and head to bed.

PirateFairy45 Tue 26-Jul-16 07:21:21

She doesn't usually wake up so much. She just had a really bad night.

Amelie10 Tue 26-Jul-16 07:22:03

Don't be a martyr. Just send her in for the whole day, she will be tired when she gets back. Win win.

PirateFairy45 Tue 26-Jul-16 07:22:35

Honestly think I'll cry if they don't have room for her. X

longdiling Tue 26-Jul-16 07:23:51

Are you sure she's not ill or coming down with something? That would be my only concern

PirateFairy45 Tue 26-Jul-16 07:27:06

No, she's clingy when she's ill or coming down with something.

She's so far from clingy atm!

EarthboundMisfit Tue 26-Jul-16 07:58:21

Hope they have room OP X

How old is she?

MissDuke Tue 26-Jul-16 08:05:30

YANBU, that sounds awful! If they cannot take her, then I would try and keep going but then both go to bed really early or nap on and off if she will sit and watch tv or something (not sure what age she is). Or could your dad take her for an hour or two? Sleep deprivation is the worst! I don't get the chance to sleep before nightshift sometimes so I understand this level of tiredness.

Who had her while you were at work last night? Did they feed her lots of sweets or something grin

Hope you are ok and that the nursery had space.

PirateFairy45 Tue 26-Jul-16 09:12:48

They had room, she's in nursery!. And now, I've realised how much I need to do at home.

WIBU to hide under DD's blanky? hmm

PirateFairy45 Tue 26-Jul-16 09:19:05

DP had her last night whilst I was at work but I put her to bed before I went out... But she had a night terror very early during the night which usually means a crappy unsettled night! confused

MadameJosephine Tue 26-Jul-16 09:19:17

Hurrah! Get yourself back to bed

ExtraHotLatteToGo Tue 26-Jul-16 15:20:29

I'd ask if they do boarding! 😁

Sleep over at Grandad's?

I hope you've done absolutely FA today!
