I'm Awake

Well, it is after 3 am and she is showing no signs of slowing down. She is playing and rolling on the floor and giggling and hitting the cookie monster button on that toy over and over and over and over...

It started like any other night, she didn't want to sleep as early as mommy wanted to sleep, but she was in dreamland by 10:30. About 11:30, she started getting restless. She was kicking the covers off, whimpering a bit, nursing the whole while and pinching tiny pieces of my skin. Needless to say, I wasn't sleeping - she was still asleep, but not me.

By 1 she decided she had done enough sleeping and began to roll all around the bed and would giggle when daddy or I would try to grab her. Daddy took her into the living room, so that I could try to sleep. He brought her back at 2, so I got about an hour of sleep before it was my turn.

We have been playing since 2 and I'm not sure that if she doesn't fall asleep soon it will matter, because I will be sleeping and she will just have to play around my passed out body. Of course today is going to be really stressful because it will be the first day of trying to juggle Smug-Baby, Smug-Niece AND a project for work that I am working on at home. I was able to juggle yesterday because there wasn't a huge pile of work, but today will be different. Do you think that is why my little angel isn't sleeping? Is she picking up on mommy stress? I didn't feel stressed about it until now, because I sort of assumed that I would have had some sleep before the attempt :(

Oh well...

UPDATE: She did go back to sleep about 4am and I was able to get another 30 minutes before the alarm went off. I hope I don't fall asleep while driving into work this morning. Grant me the strength to get through today!!

  1. I'd say something about how much of this you'd sleep through if she were in her own crib and room, but I know you'd be horrified. -------Marge
