Probably the best dad in the world

October 05, 2006

Obi-Wan-Kenobi-smallSorry about the title but if Carlsberg can get away with it without being lynched, maybe I can too!

The missus was away for 3 days and I was in sole charge (nanny term) of our baby boy.

For the last 5 months it has been the missus solely getting up first 6 times then 4 and now 1 to 3 times a night.

My biggest issue has been just rolling over and managing to fall asleep again as soon as possible.

So my feelings were mixed when I was told I was to command the ship for a few days and nights.

On one hand I was anxious to see whether I would be able to manage by my self and especially curious just how bad the nights would be - there are torture methods based on sleep deprivation you know.

On the other hand I was well worried that the experience would be simply overwhelming and that I would break down.

To my aid was our nanny which is here 8 to 5 and so takes the heat most of the day while I was away at work.

I am glad to report that I am still here and it all went mostly well.

The wake up calls in the middle of the night required just a cuddle or repositioning of the soother - 20 minutes all in all.

Also once the baby boy was in bed by 7 pm there was still time for pizza, beer and a Playstation2 session!

    not only did the kid (and the dad) survive the experience, but I have an uneasy feeling that they actually did better than usual...
