You may have noticed my last entry or two were maybe a bit more snarky than usual. The reason: I’m bone tired and feel like I’ve been beaten with a bat. You see, Baby Man has decided that he no longer wants to sleep through the night. My nearly-one-year-old sweetie, who has slept through the night since he was about 3 1/2 months old, now wants to wake up in the middle of the night and play for an hour before going back to bed. And, Momma must be there to witness it! So, I’ve spent far too many nights lately sleeping on the floor of his room, trying to keep him quiet so that quanta can get some sleep before heading off to work.
So, this lack of sleep, coupled with my aching back from sleeping on the floor, has made me very unhappy. Work isn’t getting done, ironing isn’t getting done, and worst of all, hardly any knitting or cross stitching is getting done. On the upside, my cold is finally gone, and… uh, well, that’s about it.
Anyone have any suggestions for getting Baby Man to sleep? He isn’t hungry or wet, and while he may be teething, that doesn’t seem to be the problem either. Honestly, he needs to sleep through the night soon or I’m going to collapse from exhaustion and lack of crafting.
