If you haven’t read my post below, you should really read that one first.
I left off at 12:06 a.m. I was wired, so I decided to read my book on the couch until I got tired again. Did I mention that I had actually fallen asleep before? I had just gone into the kitchen to put my glass in the sink when I saw the roach. Anyway, I start reading at about 12:10.
12:45 a.m. Connor cries. I spend about 15 minutes getting him back to sleep.
1:03 a.m. Connor cries again. He has a pain in his face. I give him some Tylenol and climb back on the top bunk to give him some TLC.
1:20 a.m.: I decide I would be much more comfortable in my own bed, so that’s where Connor and I head.
2:15 a.m.: I have a bug-in-the-bed-freak-out. I think there is a roach in the bed, jump out of bed, scream, run into the hallway, and spend a good 5 minutes searching my room and bathroom to find it. I finally decide I must have imagined it.
3:20 a.m.: I feel something sort of wet near my pillow. I wipe the sleep from my eyes and try to make out the spot I can see on Derek’s pillow. A light reveals that Connor has had a massive bloody nose in his sleep. It’s all over his face, his VBS shirt that he wanted to sleep in but needs to wear the rest of the week, and Derek’s pillow. I clean up Connor, change his clothes, rinse the pillow, and start a load of laundry.
5:00 a.m.: I remove Connor’s feet from my ribs and move him over.
7:12 a.m.: Logan comes into my room. The day has started.
The crazy thing about motherhood is I really didn’t and don’t mind all that much. Sure, I would have much preferred my 9 to 10 hours of good sleep. But there is nothing like being there for your kiddos when they need you, even all night long. However, I am sure all morning I will be watching the clock, counting down until nap time!
