Last night I lay in bed. My heart was pounding, I couldn't sleep. I haven't slept well in weeks. Lil' Man hasn't sleep through the night in weeks.
Him waking up 1,000 time a night, has started to cause me anxiety. I lay in bed waiting for him to wake up, because I know its going to happen.
He usually wakes up, and comes barging into my room with some type of complaint. He wants a tattoo, he needs to be covered up. He wants a new night light, he needs the bathroom (but refuses to go unless I get up). and so on and so.
This happens two or three time a night. Typically around 2am-5am.
It isnt the lack of sleep , thats causes the anxiety. It's knowing what I am going to have to deal with in the morning when the kid is too tired to get up.
If my boy doesn't get a good 12 hours of sleep. FORGET about it. His day is ruined until he naps.
So this weekend while Lil' Man is bonding with his adoptive family. I will be looking forward to a full nights sleep. I might even sleep in till 8am
