My cute friend had a baby back in June. She has since tried to remind me of the sleepless nights...which I said oh, they can't be worse than now, being pregnant you don't sleep either. Boy oh boy was I wrong. You might wake up all night with aches and not being comfortable...but you can still sneak in a few hours of sleep.
Little man surely doesn't sleep very well! Actually I really think he does better than the little princess did, but we spend the nights wandering through the basement trying to keep the crying to a minimum so daddy and little princess can sleep. In the past 72 hours I've gotten 8 hours of sleep. ugh!! and 4 of those hours are because lover boy stayed home from work so that I could take an uninterrupted nap. Thank you mr. And sorry to you dear friend for not listening or blowing off the warnings you gave me. You were right.
But I remind myself that it's worth it...and that soon enough it'll hopefully be over. We have fun when it's not the middle of the night. He's so precious and would never trade him for a million nights worth of 10 hours of sleep.
Besides, when you aren't able to go to sleep you can get a very nice relaxing hot shower...find new ways to do hair, makeup, etc...give yourself a nice pedicure...take a drive around the city and look at the lights and laugh at how many people already have out their christmas lights...find some new music on the net...at least that's how I try to keep sanity (I love my sleep and get very grouchy when it's disturbed).
Normally I'd be off to bed to a pleasant slumber, but I'm signing off to get myself prepped for this sleepless night. I think it's a pedicure night....yah, that sounds good.:)
