Oh Sweet Sleep, How I Miss Thee

Who are you again? For that matter, who am I? It’s hard to tell with two hours of sleep. Our little man decided that yet again, sleep was for the weak and he was one big, strong dude, but he needed company in his self appreciation of his studliness.

My hubby didn’t make it to bed until almost midnight, going in to feed, burp, comfort and beg the little guy almost every half hour. Then I gave up and broke my own rule: “Thou shalt not bring thy child into thy bed overnight, but an occasional snuggle is fine.” The minute he laid down between us he was out. Oh crap, I thought. He’s going to start expecting this. We’re screwed.

I spent the rest of the night on the very edge of the bed with my pillow hanging off the side because I didn’t want to squish him or smother him with my pillow. And, of course, I didn’t sleep well at all. I heard him snoring. I heard hubby snoring. Hell, I heard the dog snoring. No one heard me because I don’t think I slept deep enough for that.

Little Dude did wake about every 90 minutes or so, but that just took a quick “re-bink” (Jen for “reinsert binkie”) and he was out again.

Of course, today is the day I’ll work the longest that I have since returning to work after my daughter was born. I’m sitting here at lunch wondering how I’m going to make it to 4, and then how I’m going to make it with entertaining two kids and making dinner while my hubby works late.

I think I’m going to go get a Pepsi.
