    Aaaaaargh! I really need a little rant, lol!

    My FiL knows that for the past couple of weeks, we've been having real trouble getting Sophie to go to sleep at night...it's been any time between 1 and 2am that she has been going to sleep and it's been a nightmare.

    Today she only napped after her breakfast then had a really quick nap late afternoon and woke up tired and grumpy, so I bathed her at 6, she had her bottle and fell asleep over it and we got her into bed. She was sound asleep by 7.

    DH and I both had on our facebook statuses something along the lines of "Ssssshhhh, Sophie is sleeping in her bed already!" and FiL wrote on mine "This is Sophie we're talking about, it won't last" - then PHONED THE HOUSE PHONE AND WOKE HER UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And he laughed when DH said she'd woken up!

    Now she is wide awake again and we are back to square one :grr::grr:

    I know we can't expect people not to phone, but it's just when he knew the problems we've been having, and knew she was sleeping!!!!!!

    The home phone doesn't wake Ruby up but if it did, it would be unplugged! It's never anyone we want to talk to anyway.

    Now, the post coming through the door, that's another thing entirely. During naps if I see the postman approaching I open the door and wait so stupid junk mail clattering through the letterbox doesn't wake her!

    I wrote that comment seconds after he phoned so hopefully he would take it the way it was meant!! I was so annoyed that he laughed when DH said she had just woken up :nope:
