This is one of those days when my understanding husband would say "you're not lazy, you just can't sleep through her screams like I can.". If I could choose a super power... that's what I'd ask for. The ability to sleep through my babe's non-emergency screams! However, it's Wednesday and I have laundry to finish, blogs to write, dinners to prep, a celebratory overnight camping trip to pack for (hubby's first week at a new job!), a family reunion on Saturday, and am hosting a bridal shower on Sunday! WHO HAS TIME to eat or nap?
I'm jealous of all the mama's out there who are solidly on one side or the other of the let them cry it out/ respond to cries when it comes to night-time sleep. I flip-flop and that makes it so much harder! Zel was doing a good job for awhile, but last week teeth started to give her pain and then we travelled over the weekend. Both of those things fall into my "do whatever needs to be done to make her content" philosophy. So, she enjoyed midnight cuddles and snacks. Now things are back to normal and I have to retrain her how to fall back asleep without mama. But what's the point if I'm gonna be lying in bed awake anyway? OH yeah, the point is that in a few days, I might get to sleep uninterrupted for 8 hours.
OK, I'm feeling better. It's important for mama's to do a little griping (too bad they don't make gripe water for mamas... or perhaps there's some in my liquour cabinet! YEHAW!). I supposed I'll go play with my adorable little RASCAL... those multicolored computer cords do look fun!
