Exhaustion

So, I started work this week, and LM has decided to wake up in the middle of the night teething. So, working a 10 hour office day, on top of being up for a few hours in the middle of the night with a screaming baby (I can’t sleep through crying)

What is tired?  When you are rocking the babe to sleep, and you can feel a druglike feeling entering your veins and encompassing your body.  All you want is to close your eyes and let it take over you.  When sleep feels like a drug, do you just give in?  Or do you push past it and finish up your evening chores?  And then while you are doing chores, you dream of going to bed, just one more thing and you can let it take over…

And then you feel like you just can’t think anymore, and you really want to just play online…

And you let this to be double checked in the morning after a night sleep.

(825 am morning after – this is all okay)

    Theresa had the same thing with Kiernan on April 1st. She was really dragging when she picked him up after work on Thursday. After spending the day with grammy, he was rested and ready to play. Poor mommy….
