Another Sleep Deprived Day

There is something about me that you may not know...I don't run well on little sleep. Especially, a week of waking up at 5am and countless times in the middle of the night. My head aches. My body is resistant to movement. I am at best, a cranky bitch.

I will lay the blame where it solely belongs...it's Fabrizios fault! Ok, so I ratted out my kid but like you didn't already assume he was the culprit?!

All I want to know is why on earth he feels the need to cry out for me at 1am, 3am and then again at 5am want to get up and play farm or cars or food or color? Seriously, I'm about to freak.

The other day he decided he didn't want to nap and kept getting out of bed laughing his head off. After about an hour of this back and forth - to bed you go, haha out of bed, back to bed, haha out of bed - you get the jist. I couldn't take it anymore. I put him down and while I was shaking with frustration said "This isn't funny anymore. Mommy needs a nap, if you get up again I'm goin to crack!" I really think he understood because I didn't hear from him for another 2 hours.

I'm still on the verge.

Oh, this sounds dreadful. I hope he will get back to normal sleep schedule and won't wake up in the middle of the night. I'm hugging you in spirit. Love you!

oh man i hear you on being sleep deprived! ryan refused to take a nap the other day and thought it was soooo funny to hit and pinch me instead. i told him to stop and no-no-no (using the signs for those as well) and what does ryan do.....starts mocking me using the signs laughing his head off.
