As with many of you moms out there, I’m completely, 100% exhausted. The past few days have been insane. Easter was wonderful with family in town visiting and enjoying spending time with those we love.
Then Monday and Tuesday I had a work event that took me away all day (like 7 am to 5 pm), and Tuesday I had a church meeting. Tomorrow we have Parents as Teachers in the afternoon, I have work in the evening. Thursday is free (woo hoo!) and Friday I have work all day.
I know, that’s nothing, right? Many of you have sooooo much more going on than that.
But remember, I have an almost 4 year old, a 2 year old and a 6 month old baby.
And the baby. Ohhhh that baby. Who doesn’t sleep. At least not well. Usually she’s not too bad, but for the past 4 nights now she’s been waking up. A LOT. I don’t mean one or two times. I mean like five or six. Like every hour and a half.
Meaning I’m only getting like 4-5 hours of sleep. And that’s interrupted sleep.
She’s not hungry, she’s just waking up. And NOT putting herself back to sleep. It takes some intervention from mom or dad to get her back down.
And I’m SO not used to this because my older two were GREAT sleepers. Awesome. Like 8-9 hours through the night by 12 weeks old.
We were so spoiled. We thought we had it all figured out.
Now this is not a post about parenting styles. There are many different ways to raise kids and all have their advantages and drawbacks. But I WILL take feedback if anyone has any.
I’m 99% sure she’s overtired. We had a few nights where she went to bed late and I don’t think she’s caught up yet. We need to focus on getting her down for bed early for a few nights and see if we can clear this up.
Because momma is TIRED. I’m running on pure adrenaline now. And caffeine.
I know I keep saying this over and over, but good thing she’s cute. 🙂
I’m so tired I don’t even have a question for you. So just chat away. Leave any comments about anything. Amuse me. 🙂
