Little man came into my room last night, and asked me to come sleep with him. He said he was having nightmares, and I could protect him. Awwww...
First time ever he asked that, by the way.
So, me being the most excellent mommy that I am, I did. I'm very congested right now, so I guess I was snoring a little. Everytime I snored, I got an 8 year old elbow-ING me in the ribs. Needless to say, not very pleasant or sleep conducive. Add to it, 2 people sharing a twin bed, one of those people being me. And a bright light on.
So, after the little man fell asleep I snuck off.to my own bed.
Which had been invaded by animals & a husband. I guess the fact that i moved, I lost my place. I repositioned everyone & got into bed.
Next thing I know, bright light on overhead, and the big man is getting up & dressed. So...toss and turn, toss and turn, toss and turn until my alarm goes off. I hit snooze and I actually sleep. Deeply. Better than I had all night.
Too bad it was for 5 minutes.
Needless to say, I really didn't work out this morning. I kept hitting that snooze button.
When I finally rolled out of bed, I did get dinner started, and put up a load of laundry, so I was somewhat productive.
