A new family routine

So we now have a new family routine thanks to Andy's work shifts changing.

Week One he works 12:30 till 20:30 Monday to Friday and is off on a Saturday and Sunday.
Week Two he has two 10:00 till 18:00 and two 09:00 till 18:00 Monday to Thursday off on a Friday and then 09:00 till 14:00 on a Saturday.

Last week was his first week one so it wasn't too much different to what it was before for James but this week being the first of the week twos, so Andy has been getting home when James has been having his bath and bed time. 

Needless to say James has been acting up at bed time and not wanting to go to sleep as he knew daddy was home early. We normally try to alternate who puts him to bed when we are both home. But the last few nights he's just wanted daddy and it has taken both of us to get him down. So his normal bedtime of between six and seven has been after half eight the last few nights but of course he's still been waking up between six and seven! 

Next week it is going to change even more as we move out of our rented house and into my parents house while we wait to complete on our house. Then Andy is going to be leaving early and getting back late no matter which shift week he is going to be on.

Roll on moving into our house and trying to get James into a normal bedtime routine.
