I was reading some of the characteristics of sleep deprivation tonight. Wow! I have every one of them. I think what scares me the most, is the detrimental side effects of prolonged sleep deprivation. I have been sleep deprived for almost 5 years. I have a feeling I have many more years ahead of me of sleep deprivation.
This morning I wanted nothing to do other than to take a nice long nap after I dropped off Trenton. I had been awake since midnight and Trenton had been awake since 1:10 AM.(both boys had a rough night but Andrew did go back to sleep around 1 AM for the rest of the night. Of course it was right around the time that Trenton was up for good.)I even took Andrew back home with me and tried my best to talk him into a nap but it didn't work. Therefore, I had no choice other than put my best foot forward and make the most of our day.
Andrew and I had a picnic lunch by the river today!
He doesn't look like he enjoyed it at all does he?
Despite the lack of sleep that Trenton had, he had a great day at Harsha. We continue to work hard on potty training both at home and at Harsha. The iPad continues to be a huge help in getting him to sit on the toilet.
Even though he was tired, he had some giggles and smiles today at Harsha!
It is humorous to be honest at what goes on in our house in the weeeeee hours in the morning.
