I Want Some Fucking Sleep!!!

Our new plan to get the 3yr old to sleep longer (having her in bed with me while Bob sleeps soundly in her ridiculously comfy bed) isn’t working. This morning she woke at 5.05am and refused to go back to sleep. When she goes to bed she calls us upstairs 79 times to ‘tuck bunny in’ / ‘tuck drinky in’ / tell me she wants a baby brother – NEVER going to happen!

She was so tired on Wednesday at a soft play I left without paying because she was having a FULL on meltdown and the lady working just looked relieved we were leaving.

The 19 month old has decided that a morning nap is a crap idea so the hour I used to get in the morning to swear about my life while she leaves me alone is replaced by 43 thousand trips up and down the stairs to try and settle her while the big one screeches downstairs even though I told her to be quiet, until I give up and get her up.

I am so tired! I go to bed at a reasonable hour, don’t get pissed and try and not to scream at the kids.

They refuse to nap in the day without me taking 7 hours out of my day to attempt the impossible feat. And then only sleep for the crappest amount of time and wake up grumpier than before.  Consequently they are both so tired and whiney all the time it ruins the day.

Tonight I am speaking to a sleep consultant… Fingers crossed she can whip my kids into shape before I run away / become (more of) an alcoholic / sell my kids on ebay.
