My parents would be VERY disappointed to know that all that college and grad school money that they ponied up resulted in a Very Stupid Person.
Last night Bub woke up SCREAMING at midnight, exactly five minutes after I had fallen asleep. Nothing we could do would calm him down.
I was bleary eyed and desperate for sleep so I made the executive decision to bring him into bed with us.
BD is a roller, so he opted to sleep on the couch rather than squash his only son.
What I wish someone had told me about co-sleeping:
- Bub will insist on sleeping either directly on top of me or squashed up against me.
- Every single time Bub adjusts his position he will either smack or kick me in the face.
- Despite being awake for TWO hours in the middle of the night, he will still wake up at his usual time. Or fifteen minutes earlier than the usual time. When it's still dark.
- I will get less sleep than ever. The burning in my eyes is reminiscent of his newborn days.
