i'm too tired to think of a post title

I've been seeing a lot of this lately.
An awake baby.
And this awake baby wants to be held. All the time. Then he falls asleep, and when I try to put him down, guess what happens? He wakes up. Naughty baby.
So clearly, if baby is awake, mommy is awake. And mommy is very, very tired.
So tonight, because I was too tired to do anything else, we had a very fancy and elaborate dinner of chicken nuggets, toast, and milk. At the very least, the boys thought it was cool to have a picnic dinner on the porch.

Now, come on. I totally understand being tired, but if you're awake because you are looking at that GORGEOUS baby . . . then its okay. You can sleep when he's fourteen and smells funny. This comes from someone who doesn't think every baby is cute. Beautiful and precious beyond words, yes, but that child of yours is top of the line! And your boys must love the picnics! Any excuse to eat on the floor is welcomed in my house!

That's weird-- that comment was from me, Anne at our little nuthouse! For some reason, even with my username and password, it signed me in as Jon! Hmmmmm, I'll have to get to the bottom of this!

What a beautiful boy. Really he is gorgeous. What baby doesn't want to be held by a warm snug body? How fun to have a picnic! What do the boys think of the baby? I'm curious since Isabella had such a hard time. Thank you for posting the pic! I lub it!

What is this "sleep" thing you guys are talking about? I think I gave that up about 8 years ago.

Now, I'm not saying that I'm never tired! I am ALWAYS tired! But I have this weird syndrome. It goes back 8 years to when Michael was a baby. You moms know what I'm talking about. You get the baby to sleep, you watch TV for a bit, you go to bed and the INSTANT you fall asleep, the baby wakes up. This has happened to me so much, that I actually have problems going to sleep, for fear that when I do, I will be instantly woken up. Now that Paddy is 2, I have to break the pattern of never sleeping, because he does sleep through the night. And he has for almost a year. But it took YEARS for me to get to this place of the youngest sleeping through the night. So when I do finally fall asleep, I am dead to the world. A freight train could come through roaring my room at 110MPH, and I'd sleep right through it. Any one else have this problem?
