Losing sleep

OH.MY.GOD! It is 5am on Saturday morning. What the heck am I doing up?? Um... yeah, thanks Brock! You are wide awake at 5am for the second day in a row. Today I was a little grumpy because I went to bed at midnight and you have been fussing on and off since then. Then Winston (our dog) decided that after I fed you at 4am and got comfy, he needed to go potty! Once I let him back inside, you decided to wake up. So here we sit... me on the computer, and you are literally watching Lilo & Stitch... I've lost way too much sleep in the last few weeks. Mostly because of Winston. He's getting so old! Anyways, sorry for venting. I'm so tired and wish I could sleep all night long like daddy :-(

I SOOO feel your pain! Why is it that Dad's can sleep through it and worse we let them?! I feel a stab of guilt sometimes, but Ike watches TV, i just don't know what else to do with him sometimes,lol.

Vent away, for I truly believe that those that do not vent are the ones that are more likely to take it out on the child. The one thing that I begrudgingly had to do was to go to bed early, I mean 8:00pm early. I figured that a grumpy, sleeples woman was of no use to her child let alone to her husband. I also with a couple of the kids limited their naps in the afternoon, not letting them sleep as long as they would have liked. It seemed to work though, they were tired enough that they slept longer at night. Don't tell any peds. dr. I told you that but, sometimes... whatever works. Right? Take care of yourself, don't let yourself get too exhausted and get sick, because you will still have to feed the baby and do your normal routine. I know this all too well! I'll be praying for you that some kind of rest comes to you soon!

We have been going through lately as well. He hasn't been feeling well, so I have chalked it up to that.

Hope you are doing well! :o)
