Are you an Early Bird or a Night Owl?
Everyone works in different ways, their productivity at the max, at a certain time of day. Me and B are opposites…..
In our house B is the night owl, he stays up late and does anything that needs doing, washing and tidying up, work, watching TV etc when all I want to do is sleep, in fact all i can do is sleep.
I’m the early bird (only since having Little B, I must admit) and I do everything in the morning. I’m the one that gets up with Little B (not sure i get a choice when he’s poking me in the eye and dragging the covers off of me). I get him sorted, make B a cuppa in bed, pack lunches and gets myself moving for work.
It’s best to stay out of B’s way in the morning until he’s had the classic male : shit, shower, shave and about 4 coffees (not to say women don’t do the same) and even then it’s touch and go! Bless him-he’s certainly not a morning person, though he has got better! I’m not selling it right?
So I’m up at 6am and passed out by 10.30pm and he crawls from his pit dependent on work necessities (this Saturday morning/afternoon at 12.30pm after going to bed at 3am). I’m not trying to make him sound laZy here, promise!
We’ve always been ships that pass in the night, with the hours we work and since having Little B we spend a lot of time tag teaming each other. It’s often been asked, how our relationship works and is so longstanding, when we hardly see each other. We don’t live in each other’s pockets for sure but it seems to work for us. We talk on the phone during the day and message each other to keep on track of who’s doing what and when we do spend quality time together, it’s fully appreciated. We really are a great team! Though obviously it would be nice to spend more time all three of us, without one of us being distracted trying to get bits done.

I can’t last past about 10.30pm anymore without falling asleep on the sofa (Its 10pm now and I’m feeling it). B watches telly/plays computer into the early hours (I’m pretty sure he’s just putting off the next day) and wakes me up when he’s ready for bed. Sometimes I wake up in the morning on the sofa and he tells me that it was near impossible to wake me up, so he eventually gave up and left me there. Luckily we have a big comfy sofa as I seem to fall sleep there more and more at the minute, with Little B being a monkey at night. (Only took 1.5 hours and 30+ tries to get him to stay in bed tonight and waking up at 1.30am).
There is so much about Me and B that is different, but instead of it being a barrier, we’ve always complimented each other and I am so grateful for that. We are very lucky.
