: all that drama! and the poor kids! you are a saint for sticking it out for the kids. seriously
Mel, SO glad you were able to get the butterflies.
as for me. i am in MELTDOWN mode. night before last i got like NO restful sleep. i was either 1/4 asleep, or fully awake ALL night, either helping Addy through a coughing fit (post nasal drip, uggg), helping DH through his nightmare drama, or being wide awake and unable to get back to sleep for an hour at least between helping them. ALL NIGHT LONG.
so i was very very tired yesterday. i was REALLY looking forward to getting sleep last night.
started putting Addy down for bed at 9:30 ish.
she didnt fall asleep for me and DH tagged me out at 10:50 when he heard me sobbing "please just go to bed!"
so i came out here and got online, and tried to relax while i hear them in the other room, he hasnt lost his patience yet, thank goodness. and she gets quiet.. and so does he.
he fell asleep while she sat on the bed playing quietly.
so i had NO patience to deal with it at 11:30.
i came back out here to take a breath and to turn off lights, lock up, feed the cat, etc.
and then i hear him yelling.
DH is a BEAR if he is woken up. seriously. he just turns into a bear that was woken early from hibernation, growling and yelling and has NO control over his words/temperment. grrrrr makes me really upset
so i rush in. she had been telling him "daddy, i need to go peepee. i need to potty. please take my panties off, i need to potty daddy" and he isnt hearing her because he is jsut yelling "dammit Addy go to sleep, shut up and go to sleep!" OMG i wanted to beat the ever loving crap out of him i was so pissed. sure earlier i was STRESSED WAY OUT trying to get her to sleep, but i just cried, i didnt take it out on her, didnt make her feel badly, didnt freak out and tell her to shut up. i just cried in HUGE frustration. HE then gets mad at me for telling him to stop and be nice, and if anyone needs to STFU its him.
she goes potty, gets back in bed and goes to sleep snuggling me.
i have to get up to pee.
then i lay in bed for an hour unable to sleep.
fall asleep, then she starts coughing.
i am up.
for another two hours.
fall asleep just barely and DH rolls over and drapes his HUGE leg and arm on me. while i already had half of Addys body on me.
so i was up.
now with a blinding headache.
still have the headache.
its my day off. not DHs, so he is at work. i am home with Addy. and the headache from hedes.
and she wakes up an hour early!
and would NOT go back to sleep.
so i layed in bed sobbing in pain and exhaustion.
today is TV day for her while i lay on the couch and try not to throw up from pain.
and there is no one around to help me until after 4.
its only 11.
