Can YOU see the resemblance?!?! LOL!!
Seriously, my son has decided that sleeping is no longer a requirement for his happy existence. What he hasn't quite realized or figured out is that sleeping IS required for the happy existence of his mother and thereby required for HIS ONGOING happy existence. I have had a TOTAL of 12 hours of continuous sleep over the last 3 days...I am on the edge of insanity people!!
It all started during the last week of our holidays...
Bryce would awake, almost like clockwork at 3:00am crying that progressed very quickly into blood curdling screams. When my husband or I would go in to check on him, he would be asleep.

You should know that Bryce is a smart little boy and he has mastered knowing when mommy means business and is in no mood to "play". I went in and he immediately stop torturing me with his screeching. I told him in a
It's a well known fact around these parts that I do not function very well with anything less than 7 hours sleep a night. I feel very blessed that my children have been pretty darn good "sleepers" since birth. With the exception of a few "wake-up-calls" from time to time for a soother...our house gets the required amount of sleep for happiness and harmony. However, the above has become my reality and I tell ya, if you start to see my Blog Posts look anything like this....
Pleeeezzzzeee send H-E-L-P!
Wishing You All A Wonderful & RESTFUL Weekend!
