Bloody Kids!

Due to a comedy fest last night on tv (i rather liked the comment about David Cameron winning the Annual tory party leadership contest), we didn't get to bed till nearly midnight.

LMD woke for a feed at 1.30am. And at 4.30am, when she refused to go back to sleep.

Thanks for my 2 1/2 hours uninterupted sleep kids!

    Poor you! Hope you manage to grab a siesta later to recharge the batteries!

    Here via Michele!

    Sleep time is when they are at school!

    Michele sent me here.

    And I'm not much better having dealt with the mysterious disappearance of LMB's Andy Pandy Doll 3 times during the night

    ah, you should know by now.........parents should always go to bed at 7pm.....with the kids :-)
    Just to guarantee no life, but plenty of sleep....

    *laughs* Sleep deprivation, one of the finer points of parenting. :D Life with kids would not be the same without it. I hope you get a nice much needed nap in. And hello! Michele sent me.

    Well, as you have gathered, I'm not much of a sleeper myself!!! OY!
    You know I could not think of what that Beautiful pudding was! Of course that is what it is...and yes we do have it here in L.A., but I never eat it. If it's not Chocolate, it's a vegetable, to me!

    Hope you get a nap when the little ones do. I don't sleep much anymore because I can always think of things I need to be doing instead of sleeping. Here via Michele's.

    What's sleep? I'm told I'll be able to get myself some when our kids move out. Until then, my eyes will be permanently baggy.


    Back from Michele's, but as you know your site is already an addiction for me.

    you know ribbi, I suggested exactly that to CQ today, but she mumbled something about husbands running away if children enter the house.....

    oh well, only another 17 and a half years to go before I chuck them all out:-)

    [chuckle] MB is allergic to children...
    kind of good thing I can't have them then, isn't it??

    Anyway, I will look after them any time in your own house. I used to go over and take Boo for a couple of hours when silentmum needed a nap :-)

    Mind you, of course - you have to bear in mind that LMD HATES me :-S

    Michele sent me over the big pond to see you today, Mrs A.

    Geez. What with the late night watching the tele, having a 10 minth old to care for makes for not much rest. The guy I work with has a new daughter--5 weeks old--and his wife needs a lot of sleep. It's not exactly domestic bliss in that household!

    Funny how ten pm starts to seem late after kids arrive.. and sleeping past six in the morning becomes just spoiled rotten lazy.

    Michele says hi.

    My eyes seem to have permanent bags under them - and my 3 kids are aged between 6 & 9yrs!

    Sadly, they never went away (the bags I mean, not the kids!)

    Trying to run my own business - accidentally started when my youngest was a new born - I have had to juggle and cut corners to get through life.

    I too, am a juggling mum!

    Regards, Michel

    P.S. from Michel

    I love your little Online visitors box. I've never seen one of those before!

    I'm very isolated, you see ;-) - over in the Australian Outback. I feel like waving to myself when I see that 1 Australian is on line!

    I'm so sorry. Nighttime is so busy when you have young children. It does get easier but,even now, I'm still often up, for one reason or another, 2-3 times a night.

    Hang in there mrs and mr Againoth!
