If ever there was a time when a woman needed a break...the woman would be me and the time would be NOW. :-)
Here is a run down of my night, last night. To bed at 10:00...out of bed until midnight. 1:00am Andrew had thrown up-I rocked him back to sleep. Between 2 and 3am, I was up with my own issues. 5:00am Andrew was screaming the most horrendously painful screams I think I have ever heard. His diaper and clothes were a mess and apparently he had been laying in it all for a while because his whole diaper area and up past his belly button was candyapple red and sore to even look at. I cleaned him up-again-got him some water and laid him in bed with me. But laying NEXT to me was not good enough. He cried and sobbed. About a half hour later, I put him on TOP of me and he threw his head in the crook of my neck and fell asleep instantaneously.
Picture me-stiff as a board-laying on my back with my ankles crossed~an exhausted babe drooling down my neck, one leg flung over my waist, the other curled up by my chest. I couldn't move my head-or his head would move and he would wake up. I could move my arms or he would roll off.
We stayed that way-stiff as a board until Corynn woke us BOTH up at 6:50...approximately 45 minutes after the Panda had pewtered out.
I have not been having the best nights lately, for various reasons, so it isn't as though I have all sorts of stored 'sleeptime' to fall back on. No. Just me and my lost REM cycle. What a day.
My head is already starting to pound. I hate it when that happens. I might break my own rule and nap with the kids today. And my to-do list? That flew out the window last night when the gusts of wind blew the lower window DOWN onto Corynn's bed (true story!). Maybe I will watch a movie and so some crocheting. I am counting the minutes until our doctors appointment on Monday and I am praying that my little guy gets to feeling better soon. Ah-there he is now, looking for a snuggle.
Have a great weekend everyone, and sleep well for me! :-)
