well another half night

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Yup one more night I've only slept half way through! Ugh I don't like this trend I'm on and not sure how to change it. My middle son has woken me up the last 2 nights wanting a drink or something to eat. I don't mind it but its getting a little old.then I just get him settled and climb back in bed and the baby wakes up, or the cat and dog will have me up the rest of the night. What I wouldn't give for a straight 8 hrs of sleep. Makes it worse when I've gotta work the next day and because its a weekend I've gotta bring all 3 of the boys and deal with my sisters difficulties as well. Its too early to be this stressed out. I've not done as I should this week for myself again as usual, I keep trying but don't seem to get anywhere at all in my journey except backwards. I was being conscious of how I was eating, yesterday I slipped back into the picking mode because I was home and by myself with my little one. I don't like it when I do that but don't seem to get away from it. Anyway have a good day!

I know about that up all nite thing, just awful how it can wreck you the next day!
You got some good suggestions here.

I put a sign on my door for my girls... one side says: Knock the other says Sleeping.
When Sleeping was showing, they knew to keep quiet and not enter.

They've long since left home but I've still got the sign on the door!

    I hear ya on the sleep thing. I let my boys keep a no-spill sippy cup of water by their bed. That way they can get a drink w/o waking me. Plus if they fall asleep w/it in bed it doesn't make a mess. Sounds like your son maybe should have a snack before bed? Just don't make it too much of a habit or he'll be waking up every night for a snack. Hopefully it's a growth spurt or something short-lived. I hope you get some sleep. emoticon

  Retraining is definitely in order for that middle son. He needs to understand that he can help Mom out by getting his own water. And he does not need to eat in the middle of the night! Bad habit for sure.

    ..........oh, how I feel for you! the challenges of life that leave us chronically tired are just the pits! I've just joined the Better Sleep Challenge - but I'm not sure how you tackle the 'being woken by others in the night' thing. I work shifts in a care home and am constantly sleep-deprived - the stress of the demands of others on me can make me reach for the snacks! I'm trying to stock up for work with healthy snacks - but it's a constant challenge.
Take care today - hope you have a good food day, and some decent sleep tonight!
