This is not my happy place!

Baby Girl decided last night, she wasn't going to sleep. At all. Seriously, we put her to bed at 8 & she never went to sleep. She played, cried, anything but sleep. Bo, who sleeps in the room with her, slept through all her antics. Wish I could have!

Finally, and I mean finally, at 4:45 AM, I brought Bo downstairs & put him on the couch. And turned on Baby Girl's light, locked the door, went back to bed & fell asleep. When Retro got up & went to check on her this morning, she was laying in her bed STILL AWAKE!

Ya'll might think I'm a bad momma, but I have 2 other children who got a good night's sleep & will be raring to go in the morning. I have to get some kinda sleep, even if it is only 2 hours!!!

And she has been so-o grumpy all day. I wasn't going to let her take a nap (Sassy sprayed her face with water when she tried to fall asleep!), but then Sassy went to Babsy's, Bo was engrossed in TV & I wanted to rest- so I let her sleep for about 30-45 minutes.

Tonight, Baby Girl is getting a Benadryl & I'm getting 2 Tylenol Simply Sleep pills - my drug of choice!

Please don't call DFACS on me, I'm afraid they will come out here, see how good these children have it & want to bring me more!

OMG how I can relate...almost...my once great sleeper has forgotten how to sleep on her own, or fall asleep with out tantrumming it out TIO instead of CIO!!

I swore to DH that I was getting those kid-proof knobs for the doors to keep her in a room!

I hope you get the much needed rest!!

LOL. Benadryl? Been there, done that! Hey it was better than my MIL's suggestion of brandy on the gums.
