Do you know the last time I got a full night of uninterrupted sleep? No, really, I'm asking. Because I don't remember. I'm pretty sure it was sometime in the first quarter of 2008, though. That's almost THREE YEARS AGO.
I just want to go on record as saying that there is a special place in hell for whoever decided that I needed two - count them, TWO - children who seem to think that sleeping is completely unnecessary, particularly for Mommy. If one of them sleeps all the way through the night, the other is up and torturing me. On really awesome nights, they BOTH stay up for hours, and Mommy is the only one who is capable of getting them to shut the hell up and go back to sleep. So one screams while I tend to the other, then they switch roles for awhile. It's great.
The best I can hope for most nights is two or three hours, a wake up of 30 minutes or less, and another two or three - maybe four on a really good night - hours before the alarm goes off.
I love my life. Really.
That is all. I need to go grab an hour or two before one of the urchins decides it's wake up o'clock again.
And people wonder why I don't want any more kids...
