I went to bed at 10:30.

My devilchild woke up at 11:30. I fed him, we went back to bed.

He woke up at 12:30. I changed him and fed him, we went back to bed.

He woke up at 2. I stuck my finger in his mouth until he was quiet then went back to bed.

He woke up at 3. I fed him, he kept crying.

Right now he’s on his Baby Einstein mat intermittently crying and fussing. We’re supposed to be getting on a plane tomorrow to Indy for Dave and Kristy’s baby shower. I still haven’t packed his stuff (or mine, but that’s the easy part) I have two articles due this weekend that I haven’t finished yet, and I’m not getting any sleep tonight. I really want to break some dishes right now.

    I remember turning to my husband one morning, as I watched the sun come up with still-crying baby in my arms and asked, “Has anyone actually ever DIED from lack of sleep?” He laughed, kissed me on the forehead and left for work.

    I wish I was there to help Hezzie – MOVE TO CLEVELAND ALREADY!!!

    I think sleep deprivation could TOTALLY kill a girl. And, no, I can’t move to Cleveland. Is Indy close enough?
