One Long Night

If you see me today and my eye looks a little bit swollen it's because I got clocked with the fist of a two year and a half year old at 3:30 am last night. She went through a two hour phase where she would almost fall back asleep every fifteen minutes, then she'd drop "Holy Baby" and start flailing and screaming "Holy Baby, Holy Baby" in a terrified voice while flailing about. I'm not sure the punch was an accident because she seemed to think that I was part of the Holy-Baby-snatching-conspiracy. I also became the bad guy when I insisted on having my head our from under the covers instead of having the quilt she'd pulled up flat across my face (and she would check this by reaching over and grab/smacking my face to see if the quilt was there). Needless to say, it was a pretty long night. And that is why my blogging brain is mush at the moment. Sleep deprivation will definitely do that to you.

Now she's sound asleep and I feel like I should wake her up in hopes of getting her back on our normal schedule, but to be honest, I'd rather not face the wrath of my so-not-a-morning-person daughter when she still wants to be asleep and someone is trying to wake her for a reason other than, oh, I don't know, ice cream sundays.

Oh, she's stirring! I'm hoping I don't have a little grouch here after her long night.

  1. I can so relate to the waking up a totally not a morning person grouch. I have one who sleeps in my bed. I now get up at 5:00 AM and he growls at the alarm. I have to admit he's gotten a bit better now that I'm so distraught the mornings of the days I work.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
