Please God, let them sleep the Whole night (and in their own beds!!!!)

What a horrible night last night.

I was up til after one in the fault for putting a movie on so late, but regardless it was very late when I went to bed. Within two hours I had my youngest son in bed with us, and about another hour and a half later, the older one was climbing in too.


My youngest pretty much decided that he didn't need to sleep after about 4 o'clock and kept chatting so that I knew he was still awake. The older one was curled up against one of my legs, and over the other one. NOT COMFORTABLE! By 5:30 I took the chatter back into his room to try and make him go back to sleep, and only succeeded in frustrating myself more. So, by 6 o'clock he and I were in the living room with Dora.

Needless to say, my morning walk was not high on my list of exciting things to do today. I had pretty much talked myself into taking Gabe to school then coming home and going back to sleep til I had to pick him up again. Then it happened......

I was getting them ready to head out the door, and there in the middle of the floor are my running shoes. UUgghh, now I have guilt. Oh alright. On went the shoes, and Zach and I managed to get in our morning walk. (thank goodness he couldn't hear the self talk going on in my head, cause apparently the part of me that wanted to sleep was NOT happy that my feet had taken control of the situation)

Oh, sing it sister. My youngest woke up at 4am and then the next one at 6am just when I got the little one back to sleep. Can't wait to sleep, but I know my husband wants my help with something tonight! Tired! Here's to sleep!

UGH! Warren got up at 5 yesterday morning and wouldn't go back to sleep (this after the coughing fit at 3 am that woke me up and I couldn't fall back asleep after)... this morning he let me "sleep in" until 5:30.

Good for you for getting out for your walk when you'd rather be sleeping.
