Oh What A Night/Morning This Is Going To Be

Around 8 pm hubby was getting tired. He had been up since 3:30 this morning, and worked 11 1/2 hours with an hour commute on each end of that, so I suppose being tired was warranted. 😉 I thought well, I can’t go to sleep now. The toddler was “napping”. He had been cranky around 5:30, so I put him in his crib with a movie to watch so I could get some things done before dinner. He fell asleep, like I knew he really needed to. 

I should have woken him up for dinner, but the house was peaceful. 😉 I just didn’t think to wake him, and when I did think about it, I also thought he might just sleep through the night. 

I had put the baby to bed around 8, and then the rest of the family just hung out in the livingroom using devices and watching tv. Hubby did fall asleep on the couch, but around 10 I woke him to go to bed. I guessed that the toddler would wake up as soon as I decided to lay down, but no, it was the baby who woke up as soon as my teeth were brushed. I took him to bed with me, so I could nurse him and get some rest. He ate for about 30 minutes then fell asleep. I figured it would be too risky to take him to his crib, since he shares a bedroom with the toddler. I really wanted to get at least 2 hours of sleep. Lately the baby has been up every 2-3 hours to nurse. The baby slept on my chest, and I tried to fall asleep. Around 11:15 the toddler was calling out a request for pizza through the monitor.:(

It was time to carry the baby to bed, and switch to toddler mode. 😉 I changed his diaper, got him a drink and made him a pizza. He’ll be up for hours. 😦 

So, he’s got Paw Patrol on, a couple of toys to play with and his tablet…he can’t just focus on one thing. Especially his “dinner”, he’s only had a few bites of that pizza he was calling for as soon as he woke up. 

My eyes are feeling heavy, and I just want to pass out. I don’t have a set time to be up, but we have a busy day ahead of us, and I wanted to be well rested. I guess that won’t be happening. 😛 We have to go to the library,  drop the car off at a garage, pick up a rental car and grocery shop. We would like to get everything done early, to be home at a reasonable time. The library was to be our first stop, and they don’t open until 10am, so I suppose I could still manage to get a few hours of sleep. I’m hoping the toddler will be satisfied with his meal soon, and happy to go back to his room if I offer another movie. We’ll see. Until then, I guess I will just read some blogs.

    Oh no, the parenting slip-up of letting a child “nap” in hopes that it turns into an all night thing! lol I have done that, too. 😛 ((hugs)) I hope you managed some sleep. I’m up right now because Stephen had to be in at 2am and at first, I couldn’t go to sleep for a LONG time and then I woke up at 1:15 and have been up ever since. 😦 It’s 4:30 now, *sigh* The only good thing from this is that I finished my meal plan for the week!

    • I let Caleb bring his tablet to bed, but when it died he just called to anyone to turn it back on…he always calls his big brother first, but He didn’t wake up. I had to go get his tablet to charge it, and be the bearer of bad news to say he couldn’t have it back. He was upset for a bit, but then watched a movie.

      I got about 3 hours, and am about to try to get a bit more before our day really has to start. I just had to pump, because the baby was either too distracted or full to empty me. He was up multiple times during the night, but only to snack and fall asleep.😴 Now I might be too awake to get any more rest.
      Sorry you had a rough night too.
