I shared this funny meme from nickmoms last night on my personal page. Not long after I found myself regretting it. I’m convinced it triggered the following events.
I started prepping my family for bed at about 7:45 and by 9:00 I was begging everyone to get into bed. My husband was not being cooperative which makes it all the more difficult to get three kids in bed.
I spent the next two hours walking my toddler back to his bed every 15 minutes. He normally goes right to bed, so while I was annoyed, I just wrote it off as an odd night. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
12:30 a.m. My husband finally decided to come up to bed. Waking me by turning the light on, running the water in the bathroom, opening and closing doors. UGH! Fine just go to sleep now!
2:00 a.m. Woke up with the toddler who was demanding cuddle time. Dealt with his neediness for about 25 minutes and then went back to bed.
2:47 a.m. Infant woke up screaming bloody murder. Diaper changed and back to bed.
3:32 a.m. Toddler throws sippy cup against wall which scares the crap out of me. Back to sleep after my heart slows back down.
4:06 a.m. Infant wakes again, this time she’s hungry. I bring her into our room and feed her. I know, but I was tired!
4:44 a.m. I am woken up by the infant kicking me in the head.
5:10 a.m. I’m still awake because my husband, who is the only person who actually sleeps in my bed, is snoring. When I say snoring, what I really mean is he’s imitating a lion roaring.
6:05 a.m. Everything is quiet! I still have 45 minutes before I have to be awake. I can still squeeze in some sleep…
6:17 a.m. “MOM, Where r ewwwwwe? MOM!!!!! I’m up!” Damn toddler. I get him a cup of milk and lay him back down.
6:38 a.m. This guy who sleeps in my bed awakes annoyed that I woke him up with all my noise. “What are you doing? Why are you making so much noise? I have a meeting today I need sleep!”
6:47 a.m. This guy sleeping in my bed is snoring again. I start wondering if a pillow over his face will quiet him down.
7:00 a.m. Alarm goes off. Where is the Coffee?
