sleep...

or lack of it. My toddler has something going on with him; I think it is a stomach flu. He was up untill three last night. He didnt want to nurse, or take a bottle, he just wanted to be held. So after a few hours of holding him I gave him some Tylenol which usually knocks him out. I was desperate by then. He'd lay there and rub his eyes and start dozing off, then when he realized he was falling asleep he'd open his eyes untangle himself from the blanket and stand up and start giving me things from his crib. When his crib was completely empty of his soft toys and animals I turned off the light and left the room shutting the door,(I know mean mom) and went to bed. He cried for a few minutes and fell asleep.

I am exhausted and a bit frustrated. Just because I named my son after my main character who is notriously stubborn, doesnt mean I need two stubborn Noble's in my life. One is enough. It probably serves me right ehe?

My sympathies, 'Chelle. I hope Noble gets to feeling better. Congrats on the great start! I wanted to the BIAM, but I just can't squeeze in one more thing right now. Maybe someone will do another one soon. I can hope.

Noble is feeling better but I think it is teeth. So we are in it for the long haul.

I am up to 3,353 words now, and finished chapter two. I need to edit it before I let anyone read it, it came out well very adult romance... Blush!

I'll be in St george on Sat but you all have fun w/o me :(

Hope Noble gets better. Life looks so much better when we get enough sleep - or so I've been told.

Michelle said...
