My kids are out to get me...

Amelia didn't go to bed until 11 PM tonight. 10 minutes after she was in bed, Anthony woke up. He's still awake, sitting in my lap while I type. Jeff's been a little irritated with me not sleeping well lately, so he's gonna complain in the morning when I want to sleep in... Maybe I should let him do night duty with Amelia. I have to get these kids on the same schedule. Amelia has turned into a night owl being ready for bed around 9,then Anthony is up at 5 or so most mornings. Today Amelia took a nap so that's why she wouldn't go to sleep. Poor kid was so tired, but was totally fighting it. She finally passed out in my lap with her pillow and blankie. Now if I could just convince the baby in my lap that he's tired. OH well, at least he's cute when he's trying to chew on my nose...

I can totally feel your pain. Mason is my night owl, always has been. Bailey and I myself are night people too so it's never really been a problem. Now Roey on the other hand kills me....she's an early bird. She's up at 6:30 every day, regardless of what time she goes down at night. She kills me LOL Hope you were able to get some sleep! Glad to see a post from you.

Ha, sleep issues! Will they ever end? They haven't here. But we do have a rule where we respect people's need to sleep--even if it's at weird times. Hubby likes naps after work, and he gets them. I sleep in, but have agreed to take all night problems, because I don't have to get up early for a job. I am tired now, however, but have to work--transcription. But I don't feel like it. Can you tell????
