Well, temporarily at least!
You see, I am up many times nursing ds back to sleep....
And dd got sick with a chest cold on new years eve...it of course triggered her r.a.d., and she coughs and coughs all during the night.
And of course, she wants to sleep back in our room while she doesn't feel well...and we like to be near her cuz of her asthma.
But... I just can't take it! Dh will sleep through most nursings, and also most coughs....NOT ME!!!! I wake up with every sound they both make! I just couldn't do it 1 more night!
So I told dh that he had to take dd into her room or the lvg rm so I could TRY to get SOME sleep! That he needs to tend to her needs,cough meds,asthma meds,bathroom trips,water,etc...
I feel like I've hurt dds feelings though. I have always been the one to care for her when she is sick!
And now, dh is complaining that he is exhausted from getting up with her constantly all night!
My response to him," welcome to my life from the past 17 mos!!"
Sleep solutions are NEVER easy.
Have any of you done anything similar??
Thanks for listening.
