Wild Wednesday

Wild Wednesday is about all the crazy or unbelievable things that have happened in the last week to me, in the news, pop culture, etc.

Since last Wednesday here is what has happened:

P went from a won’t sleep alone sleeper, to a great sleeper, and now back to a won’t sleep at all kid. I was up all night Tuesday/Wednesday morning because she woke up at 1:30am and despite my many attempts she didn’t go back to sleep until 6am.

When P was a good sleeper!

When P was a good sleeper!

  • 1:30am-P wakes up whining. Stops whining after a few minutes and starts calling for Mama and Daa. She then continues to ramble on screaming for us louder and louder. I go in there because I didn’t want her to completely wake up. I layed on the floor for 45 minutes.   I thought she was sleeping.
  • 2:15am-I give up and decide to take a shower hoping she will cry it out. I get out of the shower and she is still crying. I went to bed with our door closed so she didn’t cause me so much anxiety.
  • 3am-S gets woken up. I give up and go into P’s bedroom. I try lying on the floor again but she threw her pillow and binkies at me. I end up climbing in her crib with her. That usually works and is my last resort.
  • 3:30am-P is still awake and now dive bombing me in bed. I give up and take her out to the living room. At this point she is completely awake and I don’t think she is going to sleep anytime soon.
  • 6am-P finally starts getting whiny so I make her a bottle, give it to her, and then put her in her crib (after she finishes the bottle). She immediately cries and I lay on the floor. We both fall asleep. FINALLY!
  • 7:55am-I wake up because I am sore from lying on the floor. I creep out and into my own bed. Success!
  • 8am-P wakes up and I beg B to get up with her so I can sleep a little while longer.

  • Oh no 🙁 I luckily have good sleepers but they have issues. We always laugh that N started sleeping through the night at 10 weeks and C it was 53 weeks but since then we are good. It does take some time to get N to sleep but we are working on new routines with him and it seems to be working. He is 7 so I know that it will be ever changing. It also doesn’t help that he is a night owl by nature just like his dad but he is so cranky the next day if he doesn’t get about 10hrs sleep.

    Go figure, last night (Thursday) when she started fussing around midnight I let her go. She kept saying, “Daa, Daa,” so I did nothing. Well around 3:30am she starting crying more like I want my binky not I don’t want to be alone. I went in there to give her, her binkies and she had pooped at some point. It leaked through her jammies and on the sheets. That’s what I get for not answering her cries. I swear it is a lose, lose situation. She did go back to sleep once we got everything changed.

    S did not sleep through the night consistently until P was born so 4 1/2. He would for a few nights then wake up and either call me or try to come crawl in bed with us. We had a reward chart to get him to sleep all night in his own bed. I had to have another baby for it to stop. I think the only reason it did is because he didn’t want to hear her cry at night.

    Kids!!

Disclaimer: I have never claimed to be any great writer. So any mistakes that are made are my fault. Sometimes I mix up names B, S, and P, but I think you can figure out who I am talking about. If you find any grammatical errors just fix it in your mind so it sounds right.
