I am afraid of going to sleep. Every night, I avoid going to bed, because I know it's going to suck. I toss and turn all night long. Then I am guaranteed to wake up between 3:30 and 4:30 when Mila has her congestion cough. She usually can't breathe through her nose, so she wakes up angry. I have to use saline spray and a booger bulb to clean her out, but by that point, she's wide awake and takes some coaxing back to sleep.
Even when Travis gets up with her, her crying keeps me awake. WIDE awake. When my alarm goes off I feel like I'm in a partial coma. But in the middle of the night when Mila wakes me, WIDE AWAKE. Ugh.
So, now I dread going to sleep because I am guaranteed a crappy night of sleep. Mila has her 4-month check up this week. I'm hoping the doctor will offer some fabulous, fix-it-all advice. Preferrably in the form of a prescription. Mila has also had these random bouts of inconsolable crying for the past week. I wonder if she has an ear infection, or something more serious. She doesn't have a fever though.
I've thought about taking Tylenol PM, but then I worry about Travis waking up with the kids if they need him. He can sleep through a hurricane. I used to be able to sleep through hurricanes. That was BC. Before Children.
