{manic mom-days}

{sleeping}

Happy Monday everyone! 

Or something like that…

I made the mistake of trying to sleep last night.  *gasp!*  I know, right?!  How dare mom sleep?  Ever. 

This is not a typical night in our household; but, with everyone being sick so much lately, it is starting to feel more like the normal and less like the abnormal.  *sigh*

I had stayed up way later than I should have, trying to be productive.  I finally fall into my bed, pull the covers over me, close my eyes, and…Little Bear wakes up for a bottle.  Fine.  Easy enough.  I expect that.  He is still the baby after all. 

Finish feeding the hungry bear and I fall back into bed, pull the covers over me, close my eyes, and…Cuddle Bug wakes up.  Crying.  So I go in his room to comfort him.  His pillow fell off his bed.  Evidently this warrants tears and screams.  *eye roll* 

I fixed Bug’s pillow, got him back to sleep, and I fall back into bed, pull the covers over me, close my eyes, and…start to doze off!  {queue smoke detector battery chirp}  You have got to be kidding me!  And this is not the first night in a week these things have gone off.  This isn’t even the first night in a week that we have changed this particular smoke detector’s battery!  Clearly the smoke detector itself is going and needs to be replaced…but it’s 1 a.m.!  Why do these things always go at night?!  It couldn’t be during the day, when no one is trying to sleep, or anything. 

I pull the detector, decide to rely on the six others that are located upstairs, and I fall back into bed, pull the covers over me, close my eyes, and…sleep! 

But don’t get too excited.  It didn’t last long. 

Bear was up twice more, there was a Little Monster who snuck into our bed at some point, and Bug decided 6:30 was a good time to start his day (I blame the farmer genes). 

There is no amount of caffeine for days like this…

Is hibernation an option?  I’ve been told (by our Little Monster) that moms don’t get to hibernate.  I attempted to use the argument that I’m a “momma bear”; but she wasn’t buying it.

Well, there you have it, it’s been just another Manic Mom-day
