I haven't been getting much sleep lately. Something is UP with Sam, I'm hoping and praying it's just precursor to his first tooth. Anyway, his record of consecutive sleep is an hour and a half. He's been up like hourly the last few nights. Eric's been working obscene hours, and he's been turning on the music and patting Sam when he calls out. Lately, I'm blessed to not have to get up every time, Eric helps out, moreso when he's already up. When I do get up, it takes me a while to get back to sleep. Thus all the not sleeping.

A long time ago my mother had a dream. She was in her room, and the dog was bouncing off the walls, like the 4th of July. Mom's dog is a bit neurotic so that's not entirely abnormal. Mom's thought was that her dog needed drugging (not abnormal either). 50 milligrams of Fnar she though. And while she was at it, she was going to take some herself.

Sounded like this dream miracle drug would fix the dog, fix the Mom...and fix everything.

Today Sam and I switched days and nights. I've found that when I don't get sleep, my back locks up, I started to spaz out just sitting on the floor with the boys. I was so sore and exhausted, I skipped out of church to accompany Sam on his morning nap. Then took the afternoon one with him. Of course, now I can't sleep.

I could use about 800 milligras of Fnar.

bummer. Andrew's sleep patterns have changed suddenly this week, too. Luckily he's not getting up in the middle of the night but is waking up between 5:20 and 5:45 instead of 6:30-7. Yesterday he woke up at 4:20 but fell back asleep after I rocked/burped him. I don't know if it's teething, or a growth spurt, or his age?!

Actually, it was John Wayne to whom mom prescribed Fnar in the dream. Also, my verification word is lumosest, which could also be a good mythical drug. :)

I know it was the dog too!
