Urgghh. Snotty nose keeping DD awake all night.
So. Tired 😴
How was everyone's night?
Crap here too. Dd was up to her usual tricks. But not only that- I'm over my boys' early morning shiz too
They stay up an hour later now than they used to. So why are they waking before 5 and deciding its an awesome time to act like monkeys? (And, I can assure you in my head I am using adjectives and nouns much stronger than monkeys!) they are so tired by 4 pm because they're not getting enough sleep. They become horrible, shouting and hitting and yelling etc. grrrr!!
A bad night all round then!
I've told DH to come home from work early. Can't continue. So incredibly tired, way worse than usual and DD only slept for 30 mins when her usual afternoon nap is 90 mins or more. I was just falling asleep, as DS also still naps, and she woke up. Spent about 25 mins trying to resettle her then gave up. Just want to cry And I bet by the time he gets back I won't be able to sleep as I'll be past it. Why has she done this today of all days! She's going to be exhausted by 5pm on so little sleep.
My DS only sleeps 20-40 mins 3 times a day for day naps. It's sucks and he will only sleep on me.
I'm away for a funeral and ds2 slept like a dream last night. Even with a 2 hour time difference.
Grrr sleep like that at home!

I'm just so upset, crying my eyes out right now.
I just can't take it anymore. I've been trying to get DS to go to sleep for hours but every time I put him in his bed he loses it. I had to walk out and have a sob while he screamed and screamed. He's finally down but could wake up at any moment.
A couple of months ago we worked so hard to get really good day naps and for about 6weeks it was awesome, but suddenly he decided day naps were overrated and I've been fighting for weeks to get even 20 mins a day out of him. I couldn't do it anymore and went back to holding him so now I have no time to myself and can't get anything done.
I try so hard to be a good mum and to be patient but I just feel like a massive failure.
Sorry about the pity party, just need to vent I guess.
I know what you mean about no time to yourself. I really do! But as your DS gets older, he really will be more receptive to doing it by himself. I'm not sure how old he is, but between 9-12 months they are learning that they are their own people, separate from their primary carer. My plan with DD, is to leave it for now, and rest when she does. I read a book or use my phone for FB or BH or even nap when she does. I will revisit the issue at 12 months.
If I am still finding it really hard, I will revisit at 14 months. And so on and so on. Definitely will be putting my foot down at 18 months though. I definitely want to have her weaned and sleeping in her own bed before she is two! lol
