The Last 12 Hours

On Tuesday nights I've been taking a sketching class (more details in a future post...sometime) with my sister in law. We tend to chat quite a bit after each class and last night was definitely no different. At 1:30 in the morning I found myself laying in bed, wide awake but I decided to turn off the lights and try to go to sleep. I finally fell asleep around 2 am and it's a good thing I did. Around 5 am I woke up because the girls light was on and I could hear Lolly up wandering around. She wanted to come in bed with me and I just didn't want to wake up Babs so I said it was fine. But Babs, she has this uncanny ability. One among many actually. She always seems to know if Lolly is out of bed when she is not and feels that it must be rectified immediately. About 10 minutes after Lolly was quietly settled into my bed, Babs woke up and insisted on the same location for herself. We tried for about 10 minutes with all of us in our queen sized bed, but the girls were a little too excited to go back to sleep. At 5:30 in the morning. Painful. So, I took the girls into the front room so CG could get some sleep before going into work. And, being the good mother that I am, I put them on the couch with warm milk sippies and let them watch the Disney channel while I attempted (unsuccessfully) to get a little more sleep. I'm not saying I was completely conscious during this time, but I wasn't sleeping. Lolly also informed me that she didn't get enough sleep last night. Um, YEAH! Eventually Babs snuggled up for a little nap so she's much happier and Lolly snuggled up but I'm not sure if she slept. I may have also slept during this time. We are SO taking a nap this afternoon!

I'm right there with you! Sam has decided that now that he's healthy, it's time to cut a few molars. I'm not sure if I'll ever sleep again at this point. A bit dramatic, I know but that's what comes with sleep deprivation!

I haven't been sleeping well lately either. It's a killer!

I think we should just blame it on daylight savings time. This proves they should stop doing it. Or maybe it's the full moon....

I've been waking up at 4 am nearly every morning to feed the baby. Even with daylight savings...she automatically adjusted!

Yikes! I'm so sorry for you. Send Lolly my way while Babs sleeps.

I am tired for you. I hope you got a nap today.

We have a king and it is still painful. We have honestly discussed getting two kings and pushing them together and making a wall of bed in our master bedroom!

I hope you can get some sleep sometime. And I highly suggest getting a King size bed if you can.

I hate being tired. Although, when I am tired, I do love the snuggly, dozey time kids sometimes let you get.
