One thing no one told me about having 3 kids is they rarely have the same sleep patterns. And its starting to wear me out. If my 4yr old has a sleep at Kindy (yes, i have asked them to stop) then im lucky if he goes to sleep before 8pm. My 2 yr old wakes easily and my 4mnth old decides that 3am is the time to wake and makes enough noise to wake us all up. Im not sure how much longer I can do 3am wake ups. Of course he decides that once everyone is up and im getting ready for the day its time to go back to sleep. Arghh! Wish i could do that. Its not made any easier by the fact my hubby works interstate and i have no family within 1800kms of here. My only saving grace is knowing they grow out of it, That and the fact my 2yr old still sleeps during the day and sometimes I mean very occasionally, I get a nap during the day. Things have been getting left (like washing etc) But I am smart enough to know Im a better mother when I get enough sleep. Who cares about a dirty floor or a pile of washing that I can never seem to see the bottom of, when I have the energy to play hide and seek and dance with my kids. After all they are growing so quick. Oh and Coffee helps alot. Haha!
