I’m sooooooooooo tired today. Just not feeling it. My kids have been terrible at bedtime lately. Rebecca’s fine. She always has been a great sleeper. Wayne Jr and Josh share a room, though and they are constantly giggling, whispering, playing after they are put to bed. It’s exhausting going in over and over and telling them “Go to sleep!” The younger two girls have just started this too (they also share a room.) The younger ones have gotten worse than ever since we got them a trundle bed a couple weeks ago. Having them so near each other just seems to make them want to giggle, jump on the beds, fight, laugh… all in all — be noisy.
Last night, I didn’t have everyone asleep in their own beds until after midnight. I’m SOOOO tired. Josh has a cold, too and I feel like I might be coming down with it. I hope I can work this thing out. Part of the problem is Wayne’s new work schedule. Four days a week he doesn’t even get home until 12:30 am. I tend to stay awake waiting for him, which throws my sleep cycles off. Once he gets home, that has started to be our time to catch up on the day, talk about the kids, etc…. Last night I didn’t fall asleep until about 2 am. This is only our second week of this schedule, but it’s becoming a habit to be up so late and it’s wearing on me. Wayne usually helps with the kids at night too and I’m on my own for four days in a row. I’m looking forward to spring when his schedule goes back to normal (although I’ll really miss the morning runs!!!)
