I've mentioned it before, but my two girls are great sleepers. Once they are snuggled in their beds and lights are out, they are asleep. They sleep all night. I thank God that they are good sleepers. It's a beautiful thing because I need my sleep. I need my sleep all night long. That solid, uninterrupted, peaceful, dead-to-the-world sleep.
If I don't get my sleep, I can be down right crabby.
The girls both have colds with lots of boogers and coughs.
10:37pm Finally snuggled in my warm bed ready to read to relax from the busy day.
11:01pm Book closed satisfied with the stopping point as my eyes closed slowly.
11:18pm "Momma? I got boogers."
11:19pm Wiped the nose and tucked back into bed.
11:20pm Deep breath, back in bed and asleep before I could . . .
1:23am "Mommy. I got boogers again."
1:24am My husband nudged me. "I'll go next time." "I went once. It's your turn."
1:25am He wiped the nose and tucked back into bed.
1:26am Deep breath, back in bed and asleep before I . . .
3:57am "Momma. I got tinkle."
3:58am Changed a diaper (without waking her sister) and tucked back into bed.
3:59am Deep breath, back in bed and asleep . . .
5:00am BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! (Ignored.) "Want me to turn on the 6 o'clock alarm?"
6:00am BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! (Snooze.)
6:10am BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! (Snooze.)
6:20am BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! I'm up already . . .
I was tired. But surprisingly not the least bit crabby.
The life as a mom. And I wouldn't change it for anything.
