I believe....

Yes, I have decided that sleep deprivation is torture. It is a sweet, loving, and unintentional torture when your kids do it to you, but it is still torture. I am cranky, out of sorts, and trying not to be, but 3 hours of sleep is just not enough.

So, any other moms or dads out there have any ideas about how to get sleep when your kids decide to stay up most night? Any way, besides caffeine, to try to stay awake when your body is really dragging? I have been eating some sugar things today, but it isn't what I really want to do. (Of course what I really want is a LONG nap!)

I hope tonight I get more sleep. I need it to be a good momma, and a good wife!

(I apologize if this post is a little disjointed, not very funny, or has a typo/spello or two. I find that fighting to stay awake takes some of the "cleverness" out of my thinking, and leaves me just trying to react to the important stuff.)

Maybe go to sleep as soon as the last one is asleep is a good plan. Staying up past that time will not be beneficial to your goal.

Love ya!

Water helps. Both drinking it and taking a shower. The thing that helps most is sleep.
(I remember being exhausted for days on end when the children were small. No one tells you about that part of full-time mothering ahead of time.)
