Two teeth Jessica, a toilet Trained Emilia and a back to work Mummy

So have been back at work for 2 weeks now, have been SUPER tired though doing two 10 hour shifts on Saturdays and Sundays is abit of a killer but its only temporary until our actual store opens, but then having to deal with the girls in the week is quite tiring. Some friends saw me the other day and in the nicest possible way they said I looked knackered!! Ah well got to get on with it......unless I win the lottery?!

Jessica now has 2 teeth and still seems to be a lean mean dribble machine so I wonder when the next one will be through? She just into everything at the moment and you cant turn your back without her rolling across the floor and attempting to crawl need to grow those eyes in the back of my head again!! Although the separation anxiety phase is kicking in and no one can leave the room without her crying! So pretty much have to have her surgically attached to me during the day......

Emilia is now toilet trained with only 5 days of doing it (still having the odd accident....when she is excited etc) but she has done so well and we are so proud! so thankful to not have to spend a fortune on nappies for her!!! The bigger the nappy the less you get in a pack!! We tried the "treat" technique so after each time on the toilet we gave her a small treat (usually raisins) and it worked really well!! on the downside with Emilia she keeps waking at around 1-2am and waking up crying and being upset?! nothing consoles her unless she gets into our bed?! I don't know if they start to have dreams now? Nightmares? but with being tired we are allowing her to get into the bed with us so need to break this cycle....any ideas mums and dads??

Pretty sure my two started with nightmares around 4 .... how old is Emilia now?

She is 3 in 3 weeks, might just be an attention thing AGAIN? or she is actually having nightmares?
