I do not understand why my children don’t sleep. What I do know is that it’s killing me.
Last night, I went and picked up the Rx the doctor called in for the pain in my side. I didn’t want to take it until I was ready for bed, because I was afraid it would knock me out. I took Tylenol around 8 to get me through until after Night Shift was over. So, from 8pm until midnight, I contracted, ran a fever, had a migraine, and had a horrible pain in my side.
At midnight, I took the muscle relaxer and went to bed. I lay there for an HOUR and a HALF before I even started to get drowsy. I finally drifted off, and not 10 minutes later, Jace was in our room. Hubby was home last night, so I made him get up and deal with Jace. He put him back in his bed, and Jace proceeded to come back into our room 10 more times over the next hour and a half. We FINALLY get Jace back in his bed and asleep, and Zander comes in. Z was in our room 4 times over the next hour. Around 5am, they BOTH came in our room. It was at this point that hubby couldn’t take it anymore, and he put them on the couch and turned on cartoons. We both finally fall asleep, and at 6:30, Lucy wakes up because she’s soaked completely through her diaper. There was no trying to go back to sleep after that.
I started having the pain in my side again around noon, so I took another muscle relaxer. It did nothing. My side has been killing me all afternoon and evening. Sitting on the hard pew at church hurt so badly. So, I’ll be calling the doctor tomorrow and telling her that it must not be a muscle.
Tonight, as soon as church ended, Jace burst into tears, saying that he was afraid to sleep in his room. He screamed and cried the entire way home. I really don’t know what I’m going to do if he doesn’t sleep tonight. If I don’t get some sleep, I’m going to become a crazy person.
