Coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz

Sleepy. Very sleepy.

Oldest daughter up at 3am. Cramps, can't sleep. 2 Advils, 1 hot water bottle, the remote and the couch.

Baby Girl heard the commotion in the hall. She's up. 3 hours of twirling my hair (it's what she does when she's sleepy) and calling the cat to sleep with us. Finally put her back in her own bed at 6-ish.

Cat can't settle. On the bed, on the floor, on the bed, on my head, out the door.

Babe is back up at 7:30am. Her Dad puts her back in bed with me. "Where the 'mote? Where the 'mote? Caillou!"

8:30am- Middle baby girl brings me a present and hand made card. "Open it!" It's one of my christmas hand towels wrapped in a fleece blanket. "Isn't it soft and pretty?!"

Half a pot of coffee later. My fingers are twitching, but I'm coming around. I love you, Juan Valdez.

THE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, I KNOW THEM WELL.
It all started when Zac was born. He never slept thru the night until he was around 3 years old. By than I was use to the 4 or 5 hours of sleep I was getting. Now that's a way of life for me. Makes for a lot of late night tv watching!!
Right there with ya!

Hey girls, you know I never get to bed before 1 or 2 at least. Maybe we ought to get together in the middle of the night. Jenn, sounds like the girls are taking after the Timster... ~;^)

If one gets up, they usually all get up. I'm one of those people that can't get back to sleep for hours after being woken up.

Ha ha, honey. You'd sleep through a roof being redone - wait- didn't you actually do that!?
