I am not getting enough sleep. Its making me short tempered and cranky. Admittedly, I need a lot of sleep. Im a good 7 hour type of gal. 8 is even better and oh, if I can get 9, its heaven. My 5 year old, Liam, is waking me up at least once a night. Excuses range from, “I had a nightmare” to “Why is the tv on in Brody’s room, I dont think its fair he can watch tv at night and I cant” and even “I dont know that Santa can make me REAL drums, he only makes toys, Im not sure he can get the job done”. Brody is my 3 year old. He used to be our prized sleeper. Now, he cries every night, he wants to sleep with Liam, our 5 year old. So, he turns on his tv and falls asleep to it. I dont really care. Picking battles is a necessity here. Last, we have our 9 month old, Colby, who still isnt sleeping through the night. Now, he has a cold on top of the teething that was waking him up. I need more sleep!!! I wish I were one of those people who can get 4-5 hours of sleep and wake up fresh as a daisy. I am not.
