Feeling kind of tired ....

cartoon from www.weblogcartoons.com

This is how I am feeling today. Last night was a rough one with one kid or the other getting up from bed. I finally get back to my nice warm bed ( I have one of those electric mattress pads). Normally Husband's Ipod is hooked up to the Bose sounddock.....(but even last night he still had it in his ACU's <---army speak for his Army Combat Uniform). I wouldn't be in bed an hour when a kid comes in.....I walk them back, sing the 'go to sleep song', come back to bed.....ALL NIGHT LONG.

When do they sleep thru the night?

That 'toon is so true, isn't it? I'm pretty sure they sleep through the night when they don't live beneath your roof anymore. :)

I love my electric mattress pad too!

When I find that out, I'll be sure to let you know!

Hope tonight is better!

They sleep through the night when they are teenagers. Then the sleep for half of the day too, if you let them. :)

I'm so sorry you are having these rough nights. It seems like it will never end - and then, guess what? It will end - IT WILL! Hang on. See you soon. Kellan

That cartoon made me giggle for the reason I can so relate.

I'm sorry you had a rough night, it gets better...or so I've heard. :)

I don't know, either. But I'm right there with ya. It's not easy, but then again, they are so worth it!

Mine finally slept all night - in her own bed- last night but in her defense she's been sick all week and I DID bribe her with going to Fundaygo tomorrow! I hope you get yours sorted out Tommie!

It's that time of the year when it's just hard to get through the day. The excitement of the holidays are over and it seems we all yearn for Spring. Hang in there!

i saw that cartoon yesterday - it's funny. Don't you hate those sleepless nights when the sleeplessness is not due to the fact that YOU can't sleep? nap today?

Oh..I know the feeling! My children pretty much stay asleep all night..except for the four and two year old. They wake up at least once. I do find that they do better when we follow a routine..bath, stories, music, prayer..so on. Hope tonight is better!!

I feel like that sometimes...don't know what to blog about or what sales to find. I think there should be a blog about what to blog about! LOL

I'm sooooooooo lucky right now, my baby has ALWAYS slept through the night. Just praying she continues to!

Hope you get some sleep!
