…last night at our house went something like this:
10:30pm-go to bed
2:00am- Jackson comes to my side of the bed saying he has had a nightmare and is scared. I’m delirious…I say, “just get in bed with us.”
3:30am- Luke wakes up…get up put his paci in.
3:45am-Luke up again…apparently paci did not work. Galen gets up and gets him… tells Jack to move over to Galen’s side of the bed… lays Luke next to me so I can nurse him…Galen leaves to go sleep in Jackson’s bed.
4:15am- Mackenzie comes into my room…says she is scared and does not want to sleep in her bed…wants to sleep on our floor. I tell her that it is too cold to just sleep on the floor, she needs to go back to her bed…crying from Mackenzie. Delirious and extremely tired I say, “okay, I’ll just go get you a blanket.” Galen overhears this conversation and comes in the room…tells Mackenzie that he will go and lay down with her in her bed (a very comfy queen size bed!).
**At this point I am wide awake and cannot go back to sleep…after about a half and hour I fall asleep…
5:15- Tucker comes stomping into the room…goes into our bathroom…opens up the toilet seat…goes potty…flushes LOUDLY…wakes up Luke…goes back to his bed and goes back to sleep.
I get up… nurse Luke and manage to 1 hour of sleep because Galen threatens the kids with bodily harm if they enter the room.:)
Praying for a more restful night tonight…
