Somtimes as that little head hits the pillow I exhale wondering when my head can hit the pillow.
Why is its some one so small can cause so much anguish to a mothers mind and yet so much happiness at the same time, is it the points of manic brain activity that keeps you loving these little people?
They are so full of enthusiasm when they look at you at 2am wondering why you cant just sit still and play cars or dolls or what ever takes there fancy. They just excude energy and all i want is to rest my eyelids for just 10 mins you know a quick power nap. alas not to be , the sun is shining and the birds are singing its time to rise and shine.
I tell myself that ill catch up and have another nap when they go down for an afternon nap, alas today the little rabbit has decided that now we are two we dont always need a nap in the day. What the!!! when did the programer change the level and not tell me?
So then I tell myself that its early to bed for both the little rabbit and Miss six and I , but then again Miss six decides its going to be the night to stay up and chill with me while the great cooking show on TV is coming to an end. Huh!! is that my eyelids closing as I miss who is booted out tonight! Luckly Miss six has it all under control as she recaps the whole show (wasting yet another 30 mins ..) and then off to bed she finally goes with much persuasion.
Yah finally put the dog to bed and check out little rabbit who is now snoring little snuggly snores and all of a sudden I jump and yell out, Miss six is doing a runner from one end of the house to the other as a big front has just hit the house and its raining cats and dogs and she is petrified the rain is going to come right through the window in her room( it faces north so no way it could ). I all but yell at the whole world how much i need some sleep and Miss six informs me that my bed will the safest place for all of us tonight. AHHHH
SO thats it , minds made up, im sleeping with Miss six (who is a worst bed hog than a six foot overweight rugby player.) but thats only the half of it, little rabbit is sure to wake up mid dream and need snuggles so three in the bed then the dog will moan untill she is let in.
Picture it… 4 sets of ovaries all competing for the blankets and some room in a queensize bed. Who put me here? What and who am I ? Surely not just crazed woman who will be putting 3 teaspoons of coffee in the cup by 7am.
What is it I should be doing right now instead of this blog? Oh yeh. Sleep but what is it and when do i get my share? Please tell me.
