Please Pass the Sleep!

See this kid...

The one with only one tooth.

Yeah he is 13 and a half months old and he has just ONE tooth.
We have noticed that in the past couple of weeks the other teeth have decided to make themselves known, which has made for some sleepless nights. At least two weeks worth....but who's counting?
Well last night Mr. C finally slept through the night. It was so nice to wake up feeling rested. The last couple of weeks I have felt tired and looked tired. Maya kept asking me why my eyes looked so funny. Well today I realized exactly what toll the lack of sleep has taken on me because of all the things I was actually able to accomplish in one day.
This being one of them...

I have been meaning to hang this wire for the girl's art work for the past...oh...three months. And now it is done.
I also got to pull apart plumbing underneath Eden's sink because she "knows" she dropped one of her favorite earrings down there. No pictures of this because it was soooooo disgusting...after throwing up in my mouth because of the grossness that I discovered in the pipes, I decided to clean and disinfect them. The best part of that little story is that there was no earring to be found. Later that day I actually found it downstairs next to Camden's bouncer seat...we still use it when he wants to lay down and drink...so thanks for that pleasant task Eeds.
Anyhoo... I am hoping that tonight uninterrupted sleep will find me once again. Not only because I clearly need by beauty sleep...

...but I also have a TON of stuff I want to do tomorrow...like grout my new back splash...

I hate that when you go to take a drain apart and it's all black, slimy, full of toothpaste, hair and whatever else fell down there. I always end up with bucket, gloves and a bottle of bleach when I take the pipes apart.
I also hate sleepless nights, we've had a few of those lately because of Kaden's leg.

this is mother nature's way of forcing you to stop over-achieving and making the rest of us look bad.

SUPER WOMAN. Sounds like you need a vacation...maybe the beautiful 72 degree arizona would be nice?...just sayin.

I love the art work! My sister is starting a business taking kids art and making it a masterpiece. She did one for Crayton for Christmas and I love it! kids art is my FAVORITE:)! tell them that i said they are wonderful little artists. xo

You are hilarious! LOVE THE MUSIC! Sorry about the toilet thing. Wait until Mr. C starts using the toilet. The grossness will not just be in the pipes (I have 3 boys that share a bathroom)!!! AND by the way, (I know you know this) but Mr. C IS ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!

I have had a similar wire thing to hang up for over a year.

Lazy, I tell you.

Love little Camden!

At least Camden's nice when he's awake. Maybe we can combine Faith's awesome sleep habits and Camden awesome awake habits and produce a perfect baby.

Where did you get the wire? I know you are super busy...I will subscribe to your comments so that you don't have to chase me around to answer me and you can just answer here.

John hasn't been sleeping well lately and I am dying.

Camden is so, so cute!

Oh, for pity sake...I forgot to subscribe...now I will..

Ha ha! The other day, Grace said, "Mom you look so tired! When people have those big lines under their eyes, they are tired!"

Always good for a self-esteem boost, those kids...

Erin said...

Aaaah...sleepless nights are being found around here too. We're working on tooth number EIGHT!!! Ten months old and EIGHT. What is up with that??

I do love that you have your coat on always. In every picture. :) I run cold too. My daily uniform includes sweatshirt over shirt over tighter shirt.
