It’s Tuesday night and I’ve just realised how much time I spend putting my five-year-old to bed. My friend is sat downstairs with the TV remote and a cup of tea while I read a story and get my little one to sleep. It took half an hour tonight, that’s actually not bad going last night it was three hours and I think I just put her in my bed with me and dropped off before she did.
As you can see I’ve got a lot of time with my hands waiting for her to get some shut eye while she wriggles about under the duvet and I’ve used that time to do a bit of maths. Half an hour every night amounts to 3 1/2 hours a week, that’s 14 hours a month and, get this, over 180 hours per year, that’s over a week, every year! That’s an entire holiday! Please go to sleep quickly tonight, please.
