Let mummies sleep

Arrrrgh. Terrible night. BOTH kids woke up in the middle of the night around 3 am and just went ballistic. Saitaoha had a meltdown and was just screaming for milk and mummy (best combi huh?). To R’s credit, he woke up despite only going to bed at midnight (had to work after dinner) and prepared milk for her. But nope, even with milk bottle in hand Saitaoha was wailing ‘mummy mummy mummy’.

This didn’t help my trying to get Saitaomei back to sleep efforts next door. I swear we have brick walls but her cries were ringing in my ears. I’m sure our entire street heard her. This arks up Saitaomei who starts ek ek ek -ing too.

So it’s now 5am and Saitaomei is still awake. 😓😓😓😓😓 I’ve been clocking an average of 4-5 hours disrupted sleep since my parents are away. This must be a new all time low. I dream of checking into a hotel and sinking into one of those gorgeous hotel grade beds and falling into a deep deep slumber. I don’t have to get up every 2 hours, my body doesn’t have to be on alert mode, no musical chairs, no restless babies and screaming toddlers. Just a deep sleep for at least 8 hours, Ahhh what a dream.

Ok back to mummy duties. I hope the rest of the world is having a nice sleep.
