Who Needs Sleep

Last night babygirl, who is really toddlergirl and Old Enough to Know Better, woke us all up at 4:30. Wait, back up. First, she spent twenty minutes trying to convince us something was wrong at 12:30, but we'd barely been asleep so it didn't count as much. Ahem. Back to 4:30. She woke up. Wet through. Crap. Changed her, brought her to bed with me (hey! Do YOU want to change sheets on a crib at 4:30?? Didn't think so). After twenty minutes, hubby was fed up, decided to change sheets himself. I helped (note: a million times easier with two people). Tucked babygirl in, and she went to sleep.

Did I?

Also note: she woke back up around 6:30 to put me out of my misery. Funnily enough (it IS a word, dang it) I had no difficulty falling asleep for ten minutes while she watched Dora, or when I switched with my husband, or on anything resembling a soft horizontal surface up until about nine am.

I am not really a night or morning person. More of a sleep person, really.

oh dear goodness...i am so with you. i have to say of everything in my life thus far, the thing i miss the most since having kids is SLEEEEEEEEEEP. i miss those days of sleeping until 11 or 12 on weekends and sleeping straight through the night. i laughed while reading this post. not cause it's funny, but because i can so relate and feel your sleep deprivation.

Your blog is eerily similar to mine - can't sleep, hate housework, three bee-u-tee-full (didn't want to copy) kids and writing in between the have-to's. Even the same books background (do do do do, twilight zone). I'd love for you to check it out...we could trade comments =)
