    So last night Phoebe stayed at her nanny's (my mums) overnight for the first time!!! She only lives an 10 minute drive from us, so we were nearby if needed.

    I really didn't want to leave her, but I trust my mom completely and I know she'll do things exactly how I want them and I thought it'd be good for me and OH to spend some quality time together as we've not been getting on too well of late.

    Me and OH had a lovely night, we went for a meal and came home to get some much needed kip, and ahem make the most of having the bedroom to ourselves ;) I really think it's done us the world of good having a little break. But my god I missed her and was so eager to go and pick her up this morning!

    I was so worried about how she'd sleep because lately she's started waking at 2.30, 5.30 and 7.30 :/
    But no, little madam behaved for my mom, she only woke up once in the night at 3.30 and slept til 8am!!! Little tinker! Gahh why can't she sleep that well for mommy lol :brat:

    My family all call my mum magic nanny as she also really has this knack of calming babies and making them sleep, maybe its because she's raised 3 kids herself. Shame she lives 500 miles away as a night off would be lovely. Glad you had a good night and feel refreshed :)

    it must be a nana thing. my mums leandros only grandparent and he loves her to bits. she also has a knack of getting him to sleep. which can be annoying to as she normally gets him to sleep within 15 minutes of holding him half an hour tops which means sometimes hes asleep when he doesn't need to be lol xxx

    That's great rach. My dad is the magic one in our family. He can literally take any screaming child and have them settled in two mins. My SIL used to get quite upset if she couldn't settle her first and she did. Thankfully I didn't take it personally he's just magic. Lol. Pity he's 200miles away. :( xxx
