Countdown to our holiday

Only 5 working days left in work until our 2 week caravan holiday to the Cotswolds. Please, please, please let Nice Poppy be in evidence for most, if not all, of the time. After four or five days of her waking up quite early over the past weekend, it became abundantly clear how closely her behaviour is linked to how much sleep she's had. Lets just say it wasn't a fun weekend. However, the past 2 days she's been back to normal and it is such a relief not to be living on eggshells, waiting for the next tantrum to blow up over something trivial.

The idea of sharing a bed with her for the 2 weeks we are away is slightly scaring me. Being kicked in the ribs and head repeatedly is not my idea of a good nights sleep. But hey ho, perhaps she'll be so worn out from all the fun we're having and the kiddies evening disco she'll sleep 'like a baby'. Think that this expression is possibly the most untrue saying in existence, now that I have had a very snuffly baby and a toddler who develops Turrets whilst sharing a bed with a parent.
