Nighttime

Last night was a hard night for us…it seems to come every couple of days. My son will have to go potty once or twice, and then his foot hurts, and then he wakes my daughter up. It’s very exhausting.

Last night it started with him being cold and not able to cover himself up. Then he woke up a little later saying his foot hurt. This happens often, and I think his foot has just fallen asleep and he doesn’t know what to do. I rub it for him and he falls back asleep. Only last night it wasn’t that easy. We finally took him over to his own room where he cried for 10 minutes (and probably flung his legs around which “woke up” his foot, so it didn’t hurt anymore) and then kept saying he needed to go potty. When I took him potty he said he wanted to sleep with sissy, so he promised that he wouldn’t make another noise if I let him.

OK, 2 minutes of peace and quiet. But then my daughter comes down trying to get into our bed. After I tell her “no” she goes back upstairs, only to come back down 10 minutes later telling me that my son was taking all the covers.

I’ve lost track of how many times I actually got out of bed, but I know it was way too many, especially since most of this took place between 4:00 and 5:00, leaving me only one more hour of sleep.

It’s just so frustrating. They slept through the night the past two nights…what made them get up so much last night???

So needless to say I’m very tired right now, and I have a lot of work ahead of me. I hope I make it through the day and through my meetings without falling asleep :)

Wow rough night huh? Me being a typical 'grandma" always worry when I hear of the same complaint , like your sons foot hurting. Keep an eye on it k? Yeah you know him and no doubt his foot does fall asleep but mmm it's the "worry gene" built into me so just keep me happy, please???? Thank you!!!
So,now keep pinching yourself to stay awake especially through the meetings and then think "SLEEP" and tonight let's hope it's a better night for you!!!

Ok. That just sounds awful. I'm also fearing the day that we have to move Jeffrey to a big bed. I just imagine him actually laying down and staying there.
Get some rest tonight, maybe you can crash a little early to make it up.

Ahh...I feel your pain! I have had many of sleepless nights myself..although not due to children..

I sense a pot of coffee in your near future!

Hope your night last night was better!
