Wow. I feel GREAT! I actually got sleep last night. Can you believe it??
Princess Piglet didn't wake me up to nurse until 4:30am!! 5 SOLID hours of straight sleep. She woke me again at 6:40am. The next thing I knew, The Novelist was waking me at 9am to find out what time I wanted to get up.
He knew I needed the sleep BADLY and was willing to let me sleep as long as I wanted, so I just asked him for one more half hour.
I have no idea what caused Princess Piglet's latest stinky sleep phase, but man ... it wasn't fun. Never is fun, actually. I know a lot of people would say I need to night wean her, but that totally defeats the CHILD-LED weaning intentions, doesn't it? Besides, I don't mind nursing her at night.
My body has gotten sooooo used to getting 5 hours of sleep that I was actually wide awake at 4:30am LOL. I had to force myself back to sleep. I keep telling The Novelist that if we were to have another baby right now, I wouldn't have to worry about sleep deprivation. I live it at least once a month still. Happily so, though.
Princess Bookworm even noticed that Momma was in a MUCH better mood. I don't even recognize who I was last week. I'm not the raise-my-voice, get-irritated-wicked-fast sort of parent. I'm just not. But I was last week. Lack of sleep will do some crazy things to you, that's for sure.
Maybe that's why I decided not to blog: could barely put two coherent sentences together, so why bother straining myself further to blog?
Well ... ... that and I spent my free time at night unwinding playing my Sims2 ;-)
