These last few nights I have stayed up way later that I should have, all on the pretext of making sure Sleeping Beauty was really asleep. There are few things I dislike more than having just gotten all comfy in bed and hearing the sounds of a baby wake. Grr!
Needless to say, though, when I stay up that extra half hour to ensure both girls are asleep, the half hour can stretch into an hour, even two.
I haven't made it to bed before midnight in three nights.
Have I mentioned before how I love to read?
When I find an enjoyable author, I have this bad habit of reading everything written by this person.
This time, I'm stuck on Philippa Gregory.
I have read everything my library system has by her, and I can't get enough!
Add three late-night read-a-thons with getting up every night to feed an infant, and a preschooler who can't sleep in much past 7:00, and you get a grumpy, exhausted, short-tempered mom.
Who, at this point, really wishes she was the Queen.
Queens get to sleep in. I don't.
Go to bed, idiot!
Me, not you.
