Dreaming!Booth - lerdo

Sometimes I wonder if I will ever feel well-rested again, or if that's just something that ended the minute we had a child.

*g* I guess I just have to survive until then.

If it helps, when she's a teenager, she'll never be awake. :)

lmao yes that is true. At least for me - I usually sleep in until 10:00/10:30 ish on weekends unless I have something else, although it also depends on when I go to bed.

LOL!

Yes, and if we keep ours up late they will (usually) sleep in. He he. Tricks of the trade ;)

Good point, Bertie! *dreams of the future*

Oh you will... These times seem like they last forever, but they won't!

Thanks for the reassurance! And you're right; that's definitely worth remembering. She won't be a baby forever, and there are lots of things I'll miss when she's a bit older. ♥

Awww...Baby Lerdo is here! I am so glad that she is healthy and doing well. I get the feeling she might have some good lungs. ;)

You will feel well-rested again, trust me!

*hugs*

Thanks, Meggi. That's good to know. :) And yes, she's here, and she's wonderful, and she's completely running our lives. *g*

*hugs you back* How are you???

Hehe...my kids still run my life and they are 9 and 10 now! I wouldn't change it for the world, though. ;)

I'm doing ok. My husband has been deployed for the last 4 months. I'll be doing great when he comes home this Friday!!! *g* We'll be back in the States for good in a few months and I can't wait!

I am so happy your family is doing so well!


Give it 10 years or so. **g**

Oy! I was afraid you'd say that. :P

I've heard it takes about 18 years. *sigh* I'm still waiting! lol

*shakes head in resignation* I was afraid you'd say something like that. *g* Hang in there!

I have absolutely no experience in this area, except for the fact that I now sleep in quite late, so I guess I'm trying to make up for it...?

Take care of yourself! *hugs* ♥

Thanks, sweetie. :) Your personal experience gives me hope. I just have to make it for a few more years. *g*

*sigh* That's what I suspected. :D

Sophie slept through the night from 8 weeks old and Joe from 4 weeks old so there is hope! I know I was very lucky, but as soon as they would sleep from about 10pm to 7am without a break, life got a lot easier.

You can kiss goodbye to having a properly uninterrupted lie in for the next few years, though. Even if dh and I let each other stay in bed the kids invariably whoop up a storm and wake us up.

Fortunately all the wonderous awesome of having children outweighs this stuff. We do sometimes sit and spin fantastic dream-stories of when they are young adults and move out, however *g* They've kind of taken the place of our 'when we win the lottery' conversations!

I bet it did! We've started to get some 4-5 hour stretches now, and that has helped. *dreams of the 10-7 holy grail*

Kids are great. I agree. M. is so little, but she's already such fun.

LMAO. Oh, honey, I love that. ♥ And I empathize. *g* This, too, shall pass

Hee! You'll get there. They are 7 and almost 4 now and sleep 8pm to 8am (except on school days when I rudely drag them from bed at 7!)

This, too, shall pass

One of the most important lessons about parenting I learnt as Sophie grew was that everything with children is a phase. If they turn into this little horror, screaming and tantruming all the time (Sophie) or bursting into tears at the slightest provocation (Joe) it's likely something they will grow out of. Knowing that has made coping with such things so much easier :)

um. from what i understand, and sorry to be the bearer of bad news, you'll never feel rested, let alone well-rested, again. *offers hugs and condolences*

*grins* Thanks for the confirmation. *lets go of dreams of sleep*
