I'm exhausted today and I don't think any amount of caffeine is going to help. Maybe I could just crawl under my desk and take a nap like George Costanza. I didn't get home from work until ten o'clock last night. At that point I spent the next hour doing dishes, pumping milk, picking up toys, blah, blah, blah. JQ and I finally crawled into bed around 11:30 and I didn't fall asleep until well after midnight. It was at 3 a.m. that I heard my wake-up call in the form of a crying baby. This tooth business is so tough for him.
I groggily stumbled to his room and tried to just rock him back to sleep. After a half an hour I laid him down in his crib and tiptoed back to our bedroom. JQ started to ask me if he was asleep and I cut him off with an abrupt "shhhhh!". Ten seconds later Gideon was crying again. Back to his room. Change his diaper. Grab the boppy and head back to our room for a feeding. It's not easy to get comfortable sitting in an upright position with your neck resting on the edge of the headboard. At 4:30 I passed Gideon of to his Dad to take him back to bed. A good twenty minutes later I was asleep.
Three hours later I was up for the day. A day that won't end until 10 o'clock tonight. I hope I don't doze off during my lecture this evening. Does anybody have andy NoDoze?
