Yeah ok, before anyone says it… my brains wasn’t so hot to begin with, but it is total mush now!
How do people sleep during the day and then get up and function???? I’ve always had a problem with this and really just avoided sleeping for short periods during the day, but I couldn’t manage to stay awake today.
Izzy and I were up and down all night. She’d do the silent creeper trick of appearing in my face at the side of my bed (when she was in the cot I at least got woken up by the giant thump of her climbing out so had some warning… now she just appears!) and just as I opened my eyes she’d say ‘in your bed Mamma’. So in she’d climb and then toss and turn and moan and groan and generally drive me nuts. So I’d tell her, lets go in your bed and get in bed with her, she’d settle and I’d do my own silent creeper act back to my own bed, only to replay this all again half an hour later.
By 5am I was really over it. I didn’t care where we slept, my bed, her bed, together, apart… I just needed SLEEP. Then she spewed, everywhere. Ah ok at least I knew why she hadn’t slept well all night!
Anyway to cut a long and gross story short, we’ve had our fair share of spew today and not nearly enough sleep. So when the bile volcano finally stopped erupting about 1pm we all went back to bed (well us girls did since Si, as usual slept through everything last night and until 11am this morning! grrrrr!). I was knackered and the three of us slept for almost three hours…. then I dragged all of us out of bed since I really want everyone to sleep tonight as well.
But I feel HORRIBLE!
Way worse than I did before I had a sleep. I can’t see straight and I just feel bleeerrrgghhh. And no I am not coming down with what Izzy has (well I hope not) I always feel this way after I sleep during the day, I just haven’t done it since I was preggers and was so exhausted I couldn’t move.
I actually wish I could grab a quick ‘Nanna Nap’ every now and then and better for it. I am envious of those who can add the odd hour or two here and there to their overall quota of sleep. But it just doesn’t sit right with me.
But heck my brain was mush when I went to bed last night as well. I have been working really hard on cooking up with some new stuff for something cool that is happening in the next few days (if you stalk me as well as Lisa does you’ll already know what I am talking about!) but I just can’t create anything decent. It all seems like a good idea in my head, but get it onto the screen and it sucks!
I guess I am just waiting for some great thunder clap to happen and suddenly my head will be clear, I will have a ton of ideas for designs that actually work and my children will sleep… most of the night if not all!
We had a huge thunderstorm here today, but somehow I don’t think it has done any good!
So just to end on a positive note… here are my girls ‘swimming’ on the kitchen floor in their new swimmers last Tuesday. They are such wackers sometimes, can’t help but smile when I see this photo!
