Ever wish you could get a pill that made you feel like you've had all the sleep you need! Just pop a pill in right after you wake up and you are ready to go? Ok, so that may be a cup of coffee for some of you, but that doesn't work for me! I am not affected by caffeine, sometimes that stinks, other times, kinda glad! :)
Last nite was horrible! I could NOT sleep! I can not tell you the last time that happened! Probably 10 years ago when I was still living at my parents! As a parent of 4 little ones, I don't have a problem falling asleep! Infact, I can fall asleep listening to Kotah read her school work, playing a game with Skylar or helping Gavin put a puzzle together! Oh, let's not leave Thad out! I can fall asleep nursing him!!!
Sitting here watching Skylar and Gavin play, Skylar comes over to me and says, "Hey Mom! Wake up mom!" I said, I am. She replied with, "Open your eyes mommy! I can't see your eyes!" To that I replied, "My eyes ARE open! Mommy's eyes are just really tired right now!"
I find it funny, amusing, that God has this way of either putting something on your mind the day before you need it or right when you need it! The whole post of being joyful that I posted yesterday, I so need to remember that today! They will test my patience, which I don't usually have when I've only had 3 hours of sleep! I feel like I just gave birth all over again, not the whole pain part, but the deprived of sleep part!
So onward I go, with eyes half shut and a happy heart! Joyful that I get to be the mommy to 4 AWESOME kids! Just help me when they start fighting, fussing, screaming, etc...
