nocturnal mamas tribe - Page 12

post #221 of 504
Its 2am but I went to lie down after dinner at 8 and fell asleep til almost 11 so I won't be sleeping any time soon. Dh slept yesterday afternoon between work appointments. Dd2 fell asleep at about 11.30 despite walking about 2 miles today which is quite far on 22mo legs.

I would like dd2 to go to sleep earlier so I can get things done earlier but she just isn't programmed for it I would be a hypocrite to complain about it.......

I read an article in the newspaper last week about teens in school who are troubled being helped by ex-service men taking classes for one day a week. Good self discipline and the motivation skills of the army were cited as good things as was having the time to find out about the kid's lives. I quote here “Children might be from a home where Mum doesn’t get up in the morning or make breakfast. We build up the picture.”

Yikes! That's me! My boys get themselves up in the morning and take themselves to school. What is wrong with a teenager doing that? What are we teaching our kids if they can't even find food for themselves in the morning at age 15?

I used to get up in the morning and get ready to go to school before anyone else got up. but that's nothing to do with being nocturnal, I just had to leave so freakin early for the school bus :

Whoa! That's crazy! Poor you, mj and how wonderful that you managed to relactate. When DS was a little over a year he had a short lived habit of biting down very hard just as he would unlatch. It was short lived because he bit my nipple so hard that he bit through the flesh about 1/4 of the way through I could bend it open completely, it was so freaky and painful! I had to nurse only on one side for a week, and it split again when I started to nurse him on that side again, it took a while to heal completely. I'm still nursing and I am super strict about nursing manners now.

I used to make my own breakfast if I got up in time (I hated getting up, was really grouchy in the morning), and my parents were around in the morning. I certainly don't think that having to make your own breakfast is a negative thing in and of itself. Actually getting up and going to school is comparative worse! LOL

wow ec. maybe I should tell the other side of the story (that's a huge pun there)

dd bit part of my right nipple off the day before the hornet got me on the left one :
she was eating raw cauliflower and went in for a little sip of boobmilk while still chewing!

Just bumping since we fell into page 2.

It's 1 am here and I'm zonked out from looking at apartments and houses. We want to move and I've finally set the ball rolling. Saw a really cute place today that I could easily live in, but we have to sell our place first.

Happy nocturnaling!

It's 4:55 a.m. here and I'm awake and at work until 7 a.m. I've been working the graveyard shift for nearly 2 years now and I love it, I'm a nightowl. I think I finally have DH convinced I'm a vampire. Now I know where to post when I get bored at 3 a.m.:

I'm still up, DS is sprawled across my lap sleeping, but not quite deeply enough to move yet.

When I was a teenager, my mom went to work super early so I always got myself ready. I never thought twice about it. But I was trusted to be "in charge" of myself and my sister since I was about 8 yrs old.

I hated getting up early and often failed my first period class because I just could NOT get there on time.

Right now we're nursing our cat back to health from liver disease. She has a feeding tube and I have to feed her every 3-4 hours, so that's giving me a good excuse to indulge my nocturnal-ness. I'm so tempted to stay up in the middle of the night after feedings, but I know I'll be a wreck the next day.

And YOUCH with all the boob stories!! You mamas deserve a medal for sure

anyone awake?
post #235 of 504
yup, but it's only 10 pm here, DS is taking a bath and I think I will get into bed soon as we spent most of the day walking and I'm feeling sooooo tired! Plus, last night I went to bed really late and didn't sleep too well.

We went to see a house in the countryside that's for sale. The village is nice and the forests around it are beautiful, but the house has a really small yard and it's on the main road, so it's probably not for us.

I also have a headache. I hope sleep and lots of water will take care of it, I really don't want to wake up with it.

I'm here at 0315 rewarding myself for 3 hours straight catching up on business letters, agreements and emails that needed sorting. I do a load then surf a bit then do a load then surf a bit otherwise I get bogged down and want to run away from it all.

Wishing all cats and humans a good night's sleep and that you wake feeling better than yesterday.
