Why am I up? So this morning my YDD decided she didnt want to sleep anymore and also decided that no one else was too. DH has to go to work and I need the sleep to get through the day with my highly energetic kids. I dont know what her deal is she is a light sleeper, doesnt sleep through the night and she is 13 months so she should be sleeping through the night. So since she woke my ODD up I had to start my day early at what? 530 and that is too damn early for me a SAHM with no where to go. So I took the girls downstairs to play since they werent going back to sleep, so DH can sleep b4 he goes to work so I guess I am just gonna have to tough it out till they take their mid-day nap. Do any parents have any ideas for a child that doesnt stay asleep through the night? I use to give her a bottle of milk when she woke but now I give her water. But she still wakes up thru the night and the sleep interruptions is taking a toll on my body esp nights like these when she doesnt want to go back to sleep. Can you believe while I am typing this they are pretending to sleep. My DH said I should keep her up since she dont let me get any sleep. But have you ever tried to keep a child up lol well my kids dont care they will fall asleep esp when really tired body all limped and there is no way to wake them up. But I def. need to do something about her sleeping bc I am so sleep deprived.
