Yet Another Sleep Post

Forgive me for having nothing but sleep on the brain lately.  It's just, well, so elusive, for everyone in the family, and like a wanderer in the desert, I'm feeling a bit hopeless as to finding refreshment again (those mirages, like sleep, really mess with one's mind).

For a few nights last week, Soren was sleeping a bit better, but now because of the time change, he's waking up at 4am instead of five.  Ye gads!  Jude on the other hand, wants to call it a day at 3:30pm, since his naps have been so short (can you even call 30 minutes a nap?), that he's exhausted by dinnertime.  Of course he then wants to party at 3am, in addition to his regularly-spaced, 2 hour nighttime wakings.  And I SO dread that mid-night diaper change, which always excitedly wakes him up.

So there's nothing revelatory about this post, other than posting for posterity (I mean, the blog is the kids' baby book, right?).  Ignoring the darkish circles under my eyes and the fact that it took me a few minutes to figure out what in the world I'm wearing in that photo (turns out it's Chris' jacket, desperately grabbed from the closet in hopes of getting warm without having to leave the chaos of downstairs to retrieve more proper attire). 
Ok, now I'm rambling.  That's just my brain on the dregs of last night's sleep.  I just realized it's 7:45pm, past my bedtime! I'm livin' on the edge here tonight, ladies and gentlemen!  Forgive the rambles!! And all the exclamation points!!!

  1. Oh dear. The exclamation points are telling. It sounds like you're all going through the motions waiting for the sleepless nights ride to stop. I hope it will stop soon and that you can get a good night's rest {or even a few solid naps woven in} soon. *hugs*

  2. Just wants to let you know you're not alone. My kids are 3 1/2 yr and 4 months and going through the same thing. Hoping for sweet dreams!

  3. Wow, Kathleen. I am sorry DST has aggravated your insomnia. Lack of sleep like nothing else can mess with sanity and wellness. Grrr.
