Ember isn’t a very good sleeper. At night she will only sleep if I nurse her to sleep and then hold her. She wakes up the second I put her down. I really don’t know what to do about that so I just end up holding her all night. I doze on and off while sitting up.
I’m so tired!
She does sleep really well in her bed from 6:30am to 9:30am. Which is, unfortunately, not a period of time I can sleep since my other kids are up.
Today I finally got her to sleep by herself on my bed. It only lasted twenty minutes but hoooooly crap did I do A LOT in those twenty minutes!! I vaccuumed, did a load of laundry, did the dishes and made the older kids lunch. I felt like I’d achieved so much! lol.
I can’t believe how much I used to do before I had Ember! I never realized it, though. I always had a running list in my mind of all the things to get done, I never stopped to notice all the things I was getting done.
The kids get to watch an hour or two of TV every day this week. They LOVE it.
The nap ended way too soon 🙁
And after a ten minute nap just now she’s up again.
