I got VERY LITTLE sleep last night. Elliott kept having nightmares and crawling into bed with us. That translates to me getting no sleep. I put him back in bed and sat with him till he fell back asleep but that didn’t matter cause he would have another one and climb back into bed with us. Then Emmett pee’d through his diaper all over me. I finally gave up about 3am and laid down on the couch.
One of the problems with Lizze’s sleep disorder is that she is dead to the world and impossible to wake up. So she got to sleep and I was up with Elliott. Even though she slept all night she have been struggling to keep her eyes open. She has been literally falling asleep while I was talking to her. She is really trying to stay awake but the sleep simply overcomes her and she is out. She could honestly sleep all day without feeling rested. It’s a losing battle and it’s frustrating for both her and I. Lately it has been getting worse and she is have a harder time staying awake. I know she is really tough on herself for this because it really does complicate things but it is not her fault. I try to explain that I can be frustrated with the situation and at the same time not be upset with her because it’s not her fault.
