I really think I would’ve gotten more rest last night if I had just stayed awake.
Cohen only had a morning nap yesterday so I was sure he’d go to sleep early. And I was kind of needing him to. My house was a wreck… clean dishes needing put away, floors needed swept and mopped, and about 4 loads of laundry plus sheets and baby blankets to wash. I really needed him to go to sleep.
Ever since Cohen really started crawling and being able to pull himself up on everything, I get nothing done. Well, nothing, besides running the vacuum about 100x a day to make sure there isn’t anything he can eat off of the floor. That, and removing him over and over and over from the DVD player and the plants.
At 10pm, I finally came to grips with the fact that Cohen was going to bed not early, and not even on regular time, but late. Very late. I picked up my crabby, whiny, overly tired little boy and attempted to snuggle him on the couch, which turned into me holding him still against his will. I don’t remember falling asleep, but I do remember waking to Tucker barking at 2am. I checked the doors, and since no one was breaking in, I calmed him down. I kicked the three dogs (Piper is in the nursery room with her pups) off of the larger couch, seeing as Cohen and I had been asleep on the shorter one and I had a horrible crick in my neck. The dogs complied for a few minutes and then edged their way back to the couch and by the time they were flanking us on every side, I was too tired to scold them or move to bed (which would’ve been the best earlier choice)
The rest of the 4 hours we slept, Cohen twisted and contorted himself and woke up about every 30 minutes, crying and wanting nursed. When one of the girls who lives upstairs left for work, the dogs all perked up and Tucker started licking Cohen. I said outloud “I give UP!” and let the dogs out.
It was a wonderful night, y’all.
Now on a totally different note, I am sort of at the “where do we go now?” point with the theology discussion. I was thinking maybe you guys could leave comments and let me know which issues you are most interested in discussing?
Thanks. Have a great weekend!
