When bear was tiny we used to split the weekend night feeds. DH would do Friday night and I would have a night of uninterrupted sleep and a lie in.
When he was a little older one the split continued, so on Saturday mornings DH would have the first change of nappy and make the baby porridge.
As bear got older the split was on Friday night I slept in a bed while DH had the couch and would field bear at 6am Saturday morning.
When I moved up into my own bed the split was who would get up when bear coughed politely outside the bedroom door at 7am to get someone to make his breakfast.
We are moving on to a new phase. Bear is making noises about making his own breakfast. To be honest, there is no reason why a sensible, intelligent child could not pour milk on cereal if I left a bowl out (bear would have to climb on a chair to get the bowl from the cupboard and that makes me nervous). Bear is also making noises about making his own toast. Leaving bear to make his own cereal makes me feel like a bad and neglectful mother, but bear making his own toast makes me extremely nervous. I can't put my finger on it. A toaster is a relatively safe piece of kitchen equipment, and bear is very sensible, but I just don't feel comfortable with it.
I don't suppose I'll get let off much morning duty though. Last Saturday morning bear wandered quietly downstairs and played minecraft until DH got up at around 9am, then they went off to have breakfast in town. On Sunday bear woke me up at 7.45am as he couldn't find his pen top. It's nice that I'm still needed.
