My husband doesn’t seem to understand what that means. He’ll say “didn’t you sleep?’
No, I didn’t. You see, right when I got the baby to sleep, the oldest woke up. He had to use the restroom and insisted on letting me know. Once I got him back to bed, the middle child woke up crying. She needed mommy to hold her for a bit. Once she was settled, the baby woke up again. He then proceeded to be up for 3 hours. As soon as he fell asleep, the cat started meowing. And then I needed to use the restroom. And then I realized I hadn’t eaten dinner, so I made a snack. Guess what happened once my snack was done? The baby woke up.
Not every night is like this, but most are. My youngest is only a month old, so I can’t really complain. I love my children, and I’m thankful to have them.
But, I’m tired.
