In college I survived off of 2-3 hours of sleep a night and was even able to nap during the day. Ahhh...I used to love to nap. Now if I nap, I can't fall asleep at night. So, even though my body wants to, I don't let it, because I know I will pay for it that night. For this reason, Samuel's first few months were very hard, because I couldn't nap when he did.
My other problem is that I don't fall asleep quickly....(God's joke...blessing me with a man that is out in 2.3 seconds flat.)....and it's even worse if I'm woken up in the middle of the night.
Which brings me to last night....Sam went down at 7 pm and we went down at 9:30 (ish)....he wakes at 12:00 and I put the pacifier back in. Then for 2 hours I "try" to get back to sleep....nothing....I get up and report that I'm awake to all my FACEBOOK followers. At 2:30 a.m. I go back to bed and I think after about 30 minutes or so I finally drifted off. My alarm goes off at 5 a.m.
Last night was actually one of Samuel's good nights. The night before he woke up 4 times. So in the past two days I have only got about 5 hours sleep. Lately, he has not been keeping his end of the bargain...he got us used to him sleeping 12 hours at night....not fair....stomping my foot!
It's just a stage...it's just a stage....I know, but it still doesn't make it any easier.
Maybe my 5th graders will not cause any drama today and we can all watch a movie instead of learning math....yah right!
Richard has Wednesdays off so he's on Samuel duty tonight....I think a 7 pm bedtime is in order for me. Please order me to bed....please!
