  • Welcome to the MTFU Daddies breakfast club
  • In light of last nights thread, i thought i’d try and start an early morning Dads club for those desperate/bored fathers who are up in the middle of the night.

    Welcome all 😀

    Rusty (up since 3!)

    Woke up silly o’clock mrshora couldn’t tell his cries were hunger cries (anyone else notice different cries for different things?).

    Sorted.

    He then woke up again and I could tell he has a sore throat.

    Sorted.

    I finally fell asleep just after the alarm went off for 30blissful minutes.

    Does it hell, I usually get up for work at 5:50. Jnr FD was up 2:00am – 3:00am last night (think hes on a growth spurt because as soon as he had milk he went straight back off to sleep)

    As I left at 6:30 he was sound asleep 👿

    Yup. Part of the reason we taught her sign language so she could communicate better, earlier. Helps reduce the frustration on both sides.

    4yrs old and in our room at 0330 this morn announcing he was ‘up’ and thirsty and was it breakfast time!!!

    feeling slightly jaded this morning….

    Yesterday before rushing out I was eating my tea with the plate on my knees (yes I know), hora junior came in. Stood, waited until I finished then took the plate into the kitchen.

    I was sat there 😮

    He’s only 18months old!

    Up at 3am today with DAAADDDDYYYY! coming from her room. Back to bed, nappy change, fruit pouch, DAAADDDYYY! another nappy change, cuddles, lessons on why we need to sleep at night, tears, chastisement, few more tears, more joos and finally quiet, just before the smaller one woke up bright and early at 5am.

    So I got dressed and got an earlier train to work.

    Btw, do you lot not put gates on their doors to stop them wandering about?

    I’ve been up at 5 al week for work, got an epic lie in until 7 today. Its sunny and still out there, so when Eddy & mrs meehaja go to breastfeeding club I’m going riding! (new tyres to try out!)

    +1 for the Gro clock – it’s like magic. Our 2 year old sleeps brilliantly and part of that is down to the clock.

    It’s set for 6.20 in the week and 7am at weekends and, even if he wakes early, he stays in bed until it’s time to get up. We then hear him shout ‘Sun’s up!’ and he charges into our room to say hi.

    His sister, on the other hand, is a disaster! Teething, tummy bug, separation anxiety and dummy dependency.

    Would love to join you all fella’s but my 3 month old sleeps in till 7.30am, having been fed at 2.30am and that’s only as we wake him up half the time. Happy days.

    I’m sure things will change, mind. 😕

    Morning all dads – both conscripts and civillian volunteers.

    One of my stepsons was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and I have to get up during the night to check his blood glucose levels and I invariably end up having to reprogram his insulin pump and/or check for infusion set leakages or stuff his face with glucose tablets if he’s hypoing.

    He’s 14 in January and I’ve still got years of this in front of me…

    gate on the door but he doesn’t even get out of bed let alone try the door, just lies there shouting “Up….UP….uuuuup”

    Ha ha – no.

    He sleeps from 7.15ish to 6.20/7 every day. Very rarely wakes up but if he does, he just goes back to sleep/ waits for the clock.

    6.20’s ok for him to get up as 1) his sister is awake anyway, 2) it means I get to play with him for a bit before I go to work and 3) it means he’s likely to have a nap at lunchtime.

    We were smug then too. Teething will put you back in the shabby club.

    Morning dads. The Two Foot Tyrant is awake. Therefore, daddy is up now. If she wasn’t so damned cute we’d have put her out for recycling months ago.

    Morning, 5.30 this morning so a bit of a lay in. Snuffly little fella was struggling to breath last night so he did well to make it this late.

    Mine have just got up after an hour of wriggling and whispering. Now eating grapes, tangerines and bananas.

    Told you I’d be here. 5am for me, my little one tried every trick in the book to break the 6am rule this morning. She needed water, then a tissue, then developed a mystery tummy ache and finally resorted to the old classic but still effective scream the house down. I canno wait for her to become a teenager and I can exact revenge. I can wait little one.

    No. 2 will be up soon enough to cause havoc no doubt. It’s the bloomin kitten that does the 0530 wake up call everyday, the little sod, now she’s happily sleeping in my lap while I have a cuppa. On the plus side, it’s SNOWING! Wayhay. As the great Bing and friends sing ‘Snow, snow, snow, snow, snoooww’

    The misses got up with the sicky 20 month old this morning, but i’m up anyway as i had to give my side of the bed up last night to a wriggly 5 yr old! 😥

    Sicky kids, don’t envy that. I remember trying to catch it in my hands then thinking what’ll I do now, dog looking on ‘you’re on your own there, even i’m not eating that’. All over the bed and floor anyway, new mattress please, and I boaked cos i’m a lightweight
