I wish that I could just sleep "in" one day.
Screw that, I don't need to sleep "in", I need a full 6 hours of undisturbed sleep!
Did anyone warn me of this before Mickey and I decided to procreate? Did anyone say "hey, be prepared to NEVER SLEEP AGAIN!" I am pretty sure my mom did, but because it was coming from my mom I probably didn't heed the warning. Because when you are young you think you know so much more then your own parents. Right?
The only child of mine that sleeps all night long, without waking me up to a) pee, b) ask for water, c) scream due to a bad dream, d) move around and fuss restlessly due to sleep apnea, d) wake me up to climb into bed with me because of a bad dream e) cry every hour or two because of a bad cold/chest infection is......0..Zilch...Nada. Not one child.
Ok, so for the majority of the time Olivia, does sleep all night, but when she does have a bad dream, it ALWAYS seem to coencide with the other two McG girls.
And this leaves good ol momma with little to no sleep.
So where is Daddy in all of this?
Ok, wait. Let me be fair to my hubby.
I have "mommy radar" so as soon a slight peep comes out of my child's mouth, I go from fast asleep to wide awake, out of bed and on my feet. By the time I am walking down the hallway Mickey is just about stirring muttering something along the lines of "mmmmm, huuuhhh?"
Plus if one of our girls does happen to come up to our room, they always, always walk all the way around to my side of the bed and wake me up. Dear daddy is never disturbed. Lucky bastard.
Of course, with all the complaining that I am doing about not getting enough sleep, you would think that I would go to bed early.....
I keep going to bed at my usual time and every night I just hope and pray that my darling McG girls will not disturb me.
Clearly I should start rethinking my strategy...
