4:30a.m.....we are NOT friends!

Suddenly my little monkey has gone crazy decided that the perfect time to wake up is 4:30a.m.  It's like she was abducted by aliens!  She has forgotten that mommy will surely die if she has to get up any earlier than 6 is not a morning person. At. All.!

Hence why there was no post yesterday.  I spent the majority of my day trying to peel my eyelids off of my eyeballs while they were screaming for "just 5 more minutes mom" of precious rest.  Nap time did not go well either.  She decided that 10 am was nap time.  A full 2 1/2 hours too early.  I thought that this was going to be great!!!  I could get a little shut eye and then when she woke up, I would be wonder woman a little above barely functioning again. Ha! No dice.  Mouse had other plans.  She decided she was going to be a hold me baby which I normally don't mind.  This time however, she had to be sitting up. Which meant I had to stay awake to hold her due to her lack of self sitting skills.

By the time she was ready to be put down again, Monkey woke up.  A measly 1 hour after she had fallen asleep.  For the rest of the day she went through fit of cuddling and turning into a daemon child crying for the slightest things.  Seriously, one time I stood up from the chair to adjust my pant leg! Seriously kiddo?  It's not something to cry about.  I promise.  I guess what I am trying to say by all of this boo hoo, what happened to my little princess stuff is that if this is what 2 brings, we can skip it and go straight to 3.  I mean it.  I used to always say that I never wanted to wish her life away, but give me the damn magic wand and pixie dust already if this keeps up, I am going to go crazy! 

4:30 a.m. should be no one's friend.  Especially when you are SO not a morning person.  Yet, again today, she felt the need to push that big red invisible button that says "Wake Mommy up WAY too early!".  Tomorrow is SO the huz's day.  Mouse and I will be content to sleep in and let him deal with the impostor posing as my little princess.  Even though I think she was abducted by aliens, I still love her.  Just not the time she chooses to wake up! to nap while the napping is good.


  1. I'm so not a morning person. My boys were up a litle before 6 this morning and I was NOT happy.

  2. I so feel you! I wish I had read this when my little maniac was an infant because I would get so frustrated and mad with sleep issues, and it would have been nice to read someone expressing the same exact feelings. I used to beat myself up for feeling so frustrated about it, of course now I know that whatever I felt, I was not alone! Found you on SITS!

  3. Oh I feel you. I hope you finally got some rest!

  4. I hope you finally get some rest!

    Have a good rest of the day!
