I just have to report on last night...

Mom: went to bed at 10:00 - slept until dad came home from study group at 11:15. Said hallo to dad. Total sleep time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Mom: Went back to sleep. Woken up by Little man L at 12:30. Total sleep time: 1 hour

Little man L: Went to sleep at 7:00 woke up at 12:30. Total sleep time: 5hours 30 minutes.

Mom: tries to sleep but gets woken up 9 times until 4:30

Little man C: Went to sleep at 7:00 woke up at 4:30 due to Little man L's crying. Total sleep time: 9 hour 30 minutes.

Mom puts both boys in bed with her - chaos ensues. Put both back into cribs - miracle they sleep.

Mom goes back to sleep at 4:45 and alarm clock goes at 6:00 - Total sleep time: 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Nap time today: Both boys sleep 1 and a half hours - mommy 's working! Mom's total sleep time (very interrupted) 3 hours 30 minutes.

Something is just not fair. (I have to come up in Hunter's defence - as my contribution to his studies I am taking night duties for the next 3 weeks - so I am probably going to be a zombie after these 6 weeks.) I am starting to forget work things....

What about calling all the prayer warrior please?


  1. sleeplessness can be such a torture device...i hope you find some rest tonight!

  2. I'll be keeping you in my prayers during this time. I think prayer is the only thing that would save me as I NEED MY SLEEP or I can't function. Wish I was there to help out. ((HUGS))

  3. So does this qualify as really tired or super tired? I'm confused!

    Children really do have a way of giving a whole new meaning and importance to caffeine, don't they?

    Good luck, my friend.


  4. Oh boy! I hope you get some this weekend. BTW, love your new heading or whatever you call it at the top.

  5. I know what you are saying. I have been not had a full nights rest in forever. Here's hoping for a good night for both of us.

  6. ohhh.....hope you get some rest tonight! SO much for the one night of 8 hours, huh? Hang in there!!!

  7. uggghhh...that's terrible!!!! i thought my four uninterupted hours last night was least i got it all together. :)

  8. Have you ever heard of something called Melatonin? It's an herbal sleep rememdy that i used to give to both Teddy and Gabi to help them sleep. Your little guys would probably only need an itty bitty amount to help them sleep.
    I can't imagine how exhausted you must be. :(


So what's on your mind?
