let’s talk sleep


so not feeling like doing anything this morning… partially because it’s a monday, partially because meeka’s hit a new low with the whole sleeping thing and was up every.hour.all.night.long (OK, OK, that’s a lie. she slept 2 hours, then 2 hours, then 1 hour, 1 hour, 1 hour, 1 hour, 1.5 hours, and 1 hour) …

sleep has been an issue in our house this weekend, mostly because we’ve been missing it.

which i totally blame on the husband. (even though it’s only, like, 85% his fault, imma gonna give him all 100% just because)

this weekend his internal clock just seemed to be stuck on “let’s wake up the baby at the most inconvenient time possible!”

saturday? came home and was calling out hellos and thoughts about his day thus far (VERY loudly) … 5 minutes after the baby had finally fallen asleep for her afternoon nap. in a small apartment, someone talking loudly at the front door? can still be heard loudly in the bedroom. needless to say, baby awake! with juuuuuuust enough sleep so that she couldn’t fall back asleep, but not enough to, you know, cure her of her tiredness or grumpiness. LOVELY.

(and yes, this is a habit of the husbands – he loves to just come home and chatter away without checking to see what we might be doing… i’m trying to curb it, since we are never just sitting there waiting for his soliloquy, but, actually, usually napping or the like… amazing, i know!)

sunday? again, woke her up from her nap – twice! – less than ten minutes in. the first time was, again, him coming home (this time, just the door shutting woke her, she wasn’t deeply asleep)… the second when our groceries were delivered and he figured i should put them away rather than him (since i’m the one who does the cooking)…


she’s never slept through the night – not even close – but usually she’s a good napper, for me at least. loves her afternoon naps, gives me a lovely 2 to 4 hours (that momma could be using to get sh*t done, but usually uses to sleep herself!) … but not this weekend, oh no. because those unfortunate early wake-ups? her afternoon naps. her lovely, long, luxurious afternoon naps.

f*ck me

i have a feeling it’s gonna be a looooong week…

    I have no words of advice, except to maybe like, change the locks and not let your husband into the house if she’s asleep.

    But, I totally feel you on the annoyance and exhaustion. I wish we could get together for a glass of wine to commiserate. xo
