This has been my life for the last few months...if I've ignored your phone call, email, facebook comment, or just you in general, this is why....I've been really, really tired and grumpy, but we'll just ignore that for right now.
5:30 pm Bedtime for Madison and Hunter
9-10 pm Feed Presley and the crash for my only 2 solid hours of sleep a night
12 am Presley wakes up to eat
2 am Presley wakes up to eat
4 am Presley wakes up to eat
4:30-45 am Presley falls back asleep
5 am Hunter wakes up
5:15 am Madison wakes up
This went on for about 2 months. For the last 2 years Madison has been getting up before 6 am 90% of the time. I don't think she's slept passed 6:30 am more than 3 or 4 times. It was really rough, I'm not the best mom when I'm sleep deprived and add on a pregnancy and newborn and it's just not pretty. Please don't try to tell me I should have just put my kids to bed later and then they would sleep in.....trust me, I tried that, I'm not completely stupid.
This is what I do all day long....Some days I think my entire neighborhood can hear the thunk, thunk, thunk of my head beating against the wall as I attempt to figure out a way for the kids to FINALLY figure out what STOP! means.
Get off my bed and PLEASE stop jumping on it
Hunter, put your underwear back on/stop playing with my ball. That's mommy's ball, go get yours.
Hunter stop throwing toys at your siblings
Stop spinning on the chair
Get off of the treadmill
Madison, no gymnastics on the couch, and definitely don't teach your brother that
Hunter, stop running into all the furniture
Hunter, that is Presley's chair. Get out.
Get out of the fridge
No more cheese sticks, you've already had 3 today
Get out of the pantry, I'll make you food if you're hungry
Madison, will you PLEASE stop writing on everything. I'm soooo glad you can write now, but not every item you own is supposed to be written &/or glued upon.
Hunter, stop playing with the water and flooding the kitchen.
can you see the water?????
I have to say I've been dealing with it much better now that Presley is waking up only once again and Madison and Hunter are finally sleeping a little bit later. They were sleeping until 7:30 am which was pure heaven but they are back to 6:15-6:30ish. I can handle that, but I desperately miss the 7:30 sleep in time.
Anyone want 2 extra kids?
