Last night Ari was up until midnight. I tried to put him to sleep in my bed with me at around 9pm, but all he did was “read” Goodnight Moon 1-2-3 and play with my hair. After an hour of this, we got up and he watched 9000 episodes of Blue’s Clues. I managed to sneak in my show “The Secret Life of The American Teenager” which he graciously let me watch.
Finally, he went to sleep (with a fight) in my bed. Today he is cranky and I am miserable. After consulting with my great friend and mama, Gry, I’ve decided that tonight Ari must be re-sleep trained. He is getting back into his bed if it’s the last thing I do.
The results of non-sleeping are this:
–a sink full of disgusting dishes that I am too exhausted to wash
–a cranky toddler
–a miserable mama
–I think Simon the cat may have a broken paw, but I’m too tired to check
I keep telling myself that I’m the mama! – I can do this!
Wish me luck tonight as I re-introduce sleep into our lives.
