I should have know that having two kids would mean I’d get less sleep. I suppose I did know, deep down, I just didn’t think about it much.
The thing is, neither of my kids are “bad” sleepers, but when there are two kids, the chances of one waking up doesn’t seem to double, but multiply exponentially. Especially when one wakes up the other.
I’m just so tired these days. Osita usually sleeps through the night but sometimes she has a “bad dream” and sometimes she wakes up so scared that she needs me to sleep with her for a while. Monito is generally a good sleeper, but he’s been teething now (both bottom teeth have finally pushed through) and some nights he wakes up and then puts him back to sleep rather quickly, but it still rouses me from sleep. Even if each one only wakes up half the time, that means I’m woken up every night.
And then there is my husband’s snoring, which is another post in itself. Let’s just say it’s loud and it makes falling back to sleep after dealing with the kids really difficult.
I haven’t gotten a solid night’s sleep in a LONG time.
My kingdom for one seven hour night of sleep. Seriously, I think it would make a huge difference.
Of course it’s not going to happen. Not while Monito is teething (and shitting his diaper every night, WTF?!) and not while my poor girl is having anxious, upsetting dreams.
Ugh. I just want to sleep. Why is it so hard?!
When was the last time you had a good night’s sleep?
