Rough night

It sucks when your feverish three-year-old wakes up several times because he doesn't feel well.

It sucks when that same child wakes up at 2 a. m. screaming bloody murder and hitting you because he thinks you're a monster.

And you can't sleeep well because there is a child laying on each arm, cutting off the circulation, and begging you to "do my back" all the while you are freezing and can't get up to turn off the fan without disturbing them

And then when your one-year-old decides he wants to get up before 6 am.

And also when they are both so sleep deprived, they fight through breakfast and the only respite you can get is to plop them in front of the T.V. for 30 minutes (at least).

When will my husband be home???

  1. Aw, I'm so sorry! Nights like that are SO rough. I totally understand. Use that boob tube! There's nothing wrong with it here and there to save a mommy's sanity. My little guy is parked in front of it as we speak thanks to a rough night ourselves.

    They sure make it up to us with hugs and kisses, though. Maybe you'll get a really long nap in return for your rough night? Fingers are crossed that you do!
