sleep debrivation

Their are killing me these children of mine. I fell asleep at 10:30 ish after working late again tonight as I have pretty much all week. There is just a lot to do and this afternoon I cut out early because my dad was in town unexpectedly and he hung out with for us for a few hours, but I had things that had to get done so once again it was back to work once the babes were down. So, I fall asleep around 10:30 pm and N is fussing at 11:30 pm that requires me to get up. I get her settled and go back to sleep, immediately fall back asleep and at 12:15, it was Mr. R's turn. By this time, I'm awake enough that I figure I may as well suck it up and pump and rest that clock and here I am. Last night, N was up and fussy a lot for some reason or other and she is usually my best, go all night sleeper. I really don't remember the night before that, but suffice it to say some turn of events happened that one or more of my children woke wanted food, attention, a nappy change that required my awake time when I'd rather not. Ah, sleep is over rated, right?

Deb, there's a reason why sleep deprivation (with a "p" :):)) is a Nazi torture! I am so sorry. I hope all the kids are back on good sleep behavior tonight. You need a break!

Love, Laura

I hear you. I cannot remember if I feed, don't feed, pump, don't pump. No sleep it feels like in eons!

It must be over-rated, I haven't had any decent sleep in almost 8 years. So hard - it's expected with infants, but not so much with older kids! Maybe for Christmas you can ask Santa for a few nights of decent sleep! That would be worth it's weight in gold.

You poor thing! I really don't know how you do it, being a full-time working single mom to infant twins and a 3 year old who sounds like he's an early bird.
