Working for the Weekend

This has been a hard week for me. I don't know why. Maybe it's because my son is not sleeping through the night and I don't have the heart to let him cry it out, therefore I get up with him (seriously) 5 or so times during the night. I know, right? He is a really good sleeper, takes several naps still during the day. Will drop off anywhere. Doesn't put up much of a fuss taking a nap. However, in the middle of the night he wants me to hold him, so I pick him up and he immediately goes right back to sleep. I put him down and he wakes up....ugh. If I bring him to my bed, lay him down, he never wakes up. The problem there: I have to sleep on eggshells afraid I'm going to roll over on him...still not getting any sleep. So this week I decided not to bring him to my bed. I would just get up with him a million times. Therefore, I'm working for the weekend. John and I are going to Kansas City tomorrow night for a concert - my parents are watching my kids - I hope they stocked up on their sleep.

How can I let that face cry.

remember b/f you had luke, you were worried that little boys might not be as snuggly as little girls (or something to that effect). sucka!

hoping you get some much needed rest this weekend. don't fall asleep at the concert.

Ahhh, if it matters, Kaylee didn't sleep through the night for a long time so I feel your pain. With Jennah, I actually made a bed beside her crib and slept in her room for a while. As long as she could see me, she was fine. You might want to give that a try.

I'm sorry Beth, that breaks my heart. I pray every night that both Luke & Kate sleep all night through. I know its exhausting. I wish I could help. Want Luke to spend the night with Aunt Sissy one night?

I feel ya, Beth. I can't do the cry it out thing either. When Kate cries for 5 minutes it feels like hours....just breaks my heart. At Kate's check up, the doctor said that their night and/or day sleep is very interrupted at this stage...I guess their brain is in I hope, for all of us, that this stage is over quickly!!

Have a great time this weekend...sounds like sooo much fun!! Hope you get lots of rest.

bless you heart! sleep deprivation and trying to be a good mommy sometimes don't mix well.

KC sounds like fun. What concert?
