I'm not lucky in the sleep department this week. All three of my younger kids seem to take turns when it comes to waking me up at around 3 a.m. Three nights ago, my 3 year old came looking for Mommy. She wanted to cuddle together. So I caved and let her snuggle with me. The next night, my 6 year old had a nightmare and asked that I stay with him until he fell asleep. I walked like a zombie and sat at the edge of his bed until I heard him snoring. Last night, my 9 year old woke up complaining of stomach cramps. Eventually, he felt comfortable enough to go to sleep. My dear hubby slept through all these nighttime encounters.
One night I was so disoriented that I jumped out of my 6 year old's twin bed to answer my daughter's cry in her room. Without my glasses and in the darkness, I couldn't figure out which way to walk. You should have seen me feeling around the walls to figure out how to get out of the room. I was really out of it, I guess. Once again, my knight continued to snore away.
If by some miracle all the kids sleep easily tonight, I will hopefully recharge my old batteries and feel half way alive during the day :)
You know that I will be awake for tonight's "So You Think You Can Dance". Here's a terrific routine, well danced and choreographed. It's a dance exploring the strangle hold of addiction. Hope you all get a good rest too!
