A friend once told me that successful people do 5 things before 8am. If my kids are up every 2-3 hours at night requiring water, clothing changes (vomit), bedding changes (you don’t want to know…), rocked back to sleep, patted back to sleep, tucked in – that is way more than 5 things we’re doing before 8am. And the fact that this pattern has been happening the last 5 nights that should make us really successful. The question is what we are successful at. At being sleep deprived? At being crabby? At being zombies? PW and I have yet to determine….
This is my conversation with Ms.B this afternoon. It started when I had to go into her room for the fourth time to tell her to GO TO SLEEP:
“Bay-lor. It is TIME TO SLEEP.”
“Ok mommy. I just tucking my nanimals (animals) in.”
“Ok well let’s finish up and I’ll tuck you in and then you have to get some sleep. Why are Minnie and Daisy on the floor?”
“I throw Daisy Duck and Minnie out mine crib because they being naunny (naughty).”
“Oh so it’s their fault you’re still awake?”
“Yes mommy. But now I have Big Num Nums (her big pink rabbit) so I go to sleep.”
