Need.More.Sleep

So tired. Turtle is snuffly and teething right now. He has two at the top poking through and two at the bottom making their way there (and has 4 teeth already fully grown).

And he will just not sleep at night. He was a fantastic sleeper from day one. But he's making up for it now. I've had 3 nights in a row of him just screaming at me all night. Honestly, I'm not exaggerating. He is just plain mad at me all night long. I get 45 mins of so in the morning where he finally sleeps without nursing or screaming. Then the other kids come to wake me.

Last night he didn't even go to sleep until close to midnight. He wasn't screaming and grumping, he was being very cute. He had a pink diaper on and his batman pj top with cape, and was doing all his cute smiles and getting into things and dancing and making noises. I think he's had too much candy from halloween, which very well might explain his night time grumps too. He finally went to sleep, Rene and I watched an episode of heros (I need *some* grown up time) and shut off the lights and laid down just in time for Turtle to start up his sirens again.

I feel like a zombie. All my days are running into each other. And I feel so sorry for myself and grumpy. I'm planning a day in bed today. Lots of tv and hanging around in our jammies. I really really hope he sleeps tonight.

Remember to check out Kaya's ikaya 2nd webisode. She'll be heartbroken if she gets no comments.

Awww... I know how that can be. My kids have been up and down all night this past week because of the Flu. So I'm still walking around bumping into walls all day, myself... This too shall pass.
