Dear me, I am so darn tired.
Every night I get six to seven hours of poor patchy sleep.
At nine months old, Little River is still getting up twice a night to eat. Since I'm not breastfeeding all I need to do is get up, mix up a bottle of formula, hand it to him in his crib and he'll eat in his sleep.
The problem is, I can't just go back to sleep while he eats, he needs to be somewhat monitored but I don't have the energy to sit and hover over him waiting for him to finish his middle-of-the-night bottles. So I lay back down and pretty much sleep with my eyes open until he's done. I do this twice a night.
I'm so tired.
I know these photos say otherwise but they were taken yesterday after having a few hours to wake up.
You know what I wanna do right now... besides go back to sleep for another five hours?
I wanna eat some waffles.
I wanna listen to some gypsy jazz and maybe drink a little wine at 10:30 in the morning.
I think that's what I'll do.
No, River has gone back to sleep now.
Maybe I'll nap too?
Maybe I'll march into the bedroom and throw a coffee mug at my still sleeping husband to get him to wake up and take over for a spell.
The temptation is great.
