Damn, I’m Sleepy
Cal has been teething and the past two nights he hasn't slept well at all. Of course that translates into me and Mike not sleeping well. Since Mike has to go to a job and do real work I try to be the main one who is up with Cal. This doesn't always work because sometimes Mike is just more awake than I am.
But one of the things I do end up being responsible for is sleeping with Cal when he's fretful. It beats getting up and down all night and we only have a full size bed so it's kind of crowded with all three of us in there and no one sleeps well.
So my solution is to go into the living room and Cal and I sleep in the kids' teepee play tent. I've got a bunch of blankets to make the floor a little softer. And it's a great place to take a nap because it's so dark and cozy. When it comes to sleeping there most of the night, things aren't quite so nice.
The past two nights I've spent some time with Cal in the ol' tent. Last night was pretty darn horrible. We went there around 2 am and he tossed and turned and snored. Yes, snored. No amount of cold medicine could clear his nasal passages. Yep, I got really shitty sleep last night. And the night before last wasn't much better.
I sure hope he sleeps better tonight. If I have to go through another night of crappy sleep on the floor I may end up killing someone tomorrow.
