Stream of Consciousness

Whew! I'm exhausted. Trent has had more night wakings after going 4 nights without. Saturday night he was awake from 11p-2a. That makes for 1 tired mama. Is it his teeth? 2 MORE are coming through for a total of SEVEN. We tried teething tablets tonight, so we'll see. Today was day 2 of school. Trent slept for about 40 minutes TOTAL when he normally sleeps 2-4 hours during the day. He was in bed asleep by 5:50. Poor, tired little guy. I hope tonight goes okay. I hope day 3 goes okay at school too. Here's a duh statement for you - parenting is rough! I totally don't mind getting up in the night if Trent needs me. What I do mind is not knowing if he needs me or not. I keep telling myself it would be so nice if he could just tell me what he needs. Of course I know once he's talking, we'll have a whole new set of problems! My brain is made of jell-o....zzzzz..... After 9 months of nursing, how can I STILL be getting clogged ducts? YOW! Okay, back to work.

He might be waking up more in the middle of the night because he's not sleeping as well during the day. I know it sounds silly but Jillian always sleep better at night when she's slept well during the day and vice versa. I bet once he gets used to his new routine he'll be back on track. Hang in there!

I hope Trent is sleeping better. My biggest shock about parenting...I thought that after about three months or so all kids slept through the night all the time. And then I had Jordan and found out how wrong I was...
