Buzz Off!

There's a fly in my room and it's now "trapped" between the window panes and the curtains... And the buzz is just so irritating to a worn out Mommy.

Micah fell asleep last night about 8pm only to wake up crying about 11pm due to growing pains and then again at 3am.

Max fell asleep about 9pm (what an amazing time for the boys to sleep to early).
Then when Micah cried at 11pm, he also wanted some attention. So mommy was nursing one boy while reaching over to rub the other's knee. Daddy tried to help, but both boys only want Mommy. Wish I was like Mrs. Incredible nee Elastic Girl.

Finally both boys fell asleep. Daddy put on 007 Casino Royale for me to watch (did not catch it in the cinema and didn't finish the show last night too) and then he feel asleep.

2am: Max cried and wanted to sleep in his swing downstairs. I took him down, put on his favourite music, got myself a drink and came back to try to finish my post on growing pains. Then 3am, got Max up to the room again. He slept well this time, but Micah cried a few more times through the night. Sometimes he just wanted me to scratch his back.

We all woke up about 8.30am, but Daddy had already kissed us all goodbye sometime earlier.

Now I'm gonna take a nap while the boys play and the grandparents watch them. Can already hear grandma scolding them... but I need to lie down. My back is scolding me for sitting in front of the computer even...

Will come back later and tell you what we did to pass time today.

Now to lie down....

mmm.... sleepless nights.... it's such a norm for us mummies isn't it? Even when hubby offers to take care of Reese... I still can't sleep with ease...haha... and now...I have problem falling asleep once Reese wake me up in the middle of the night... I will go surf the net...read a book or just stare up the cealing and listening to Reese's gentle breathing and hubby's soft snoring.. it usually take 1 to 2 hours before I can sleep.... :(

a gift from god,

I so know what you meam. That's how I always end up blogging in the middle of the night.

I also end up doing laundry like ironing in the middle of the night. If I could, I'd mop too, but the boys sleep on the floor so not possible..

Before blogging I would send sms and people would ask if I ever sleep. Hahaha...

Kathie - there is no perspective whatsoever with night and day for mummies! Thus is how great a mother's love and sacrifice...

Prayerfully, you will be able to catch some snatches in between though to recover fully.

Take care and rest well. Maybe will come visit you and entertain your boys for a while!

Thanks. A visit would be delightful.

My in-laws were great. I actually napped for a couple of hours yesterday. Quite a good make-up sleep.
