So Liam started sleeping through the night over a week ago. Yes, miracles of miracles! Much rejoicing has been going on in my huge head lately! I've even told a few people that it's happening. And for some reason making this information public hasn't reverted my child back to being up 3 times a night. I am stunned.
In the past year I have reported a good night here and there... even prayed for sleep to come to our household. Suffice it to say, I stopped doing both.
So why all the sudden is Liam sleeping more? I kinda think it's because of the breathing treatments and I kinda think it's because he plays outside more. Plus he is eating much more at dinner time. Whatever the reason he's sleeping better doesn't matter so much. I am just happy to be feeling revamped and normal! I never thought the day would come. Really, I had given up hope. I told myself that I must have one of those children that will be up in the night at 4 years old. Not so, my friends. Not so.
Ah, the good life is back again. Now I just need to learn to go to bed a bit earlier and really enjoy a full 8 hours. I have been stuck at a midnight bedtime for over a year because Liam used to get up at that time for a feeding. So I would stay up. And I am still staying up. I need to quit that. It's just... the time change screwed me up a little more. I started staying up until 1am when that happened. So now I am back to midnight. About a week ago I crashed at 10:30pm. Amazing, right? Well I woke at 2am ready for the day. Yeah, I went back to bed of course. But that totally made me more tired.
You know what I think? Moms are just going to be tired the rest of their lives. No matter what we do, we will never get ahead of the wacked out biorhythms that start when we are pregnant. Am I right?
