I am going to need a nap today.
The night before last was long and sleepless, thanks to my boys. When Monkey wasn't having dreams that required my frequent reassurance and tucking in, Lawyerboy was snoring. Most of the time I'll rub his back until he stops (seriously, he is the only person in the world who snores while sleeping on his stomach) but that usually wakes him up and he was getting to work at 6am the next day, even earlier than usual. By the end of yesterday I was tired enough to be having muscle spasms in my eye (normal for me) and in my butt (not normal). Laying there somehow this shaky, twitchy feeling made me feel hugely anxious, like I was going to have an anxiety attack (yes, sometimes I suffer anxiety that I might have an anxiety attack-awesome! Self-perpetuating worry!) So I did some 1am yoga and then wasted an hour or so reading about how to play the didgeridoo.

You would be amazed to know how often I recall my nights during the light of day and think, man, I really am crazy.White Eggplant Blossom

Have you ever thought of investing in a cheap set of earplugs?? ;)

I've also got a man who snores on his stomach. I do the backrub thing too, but you can only do it so much. And my oldest has had night terrors since he was tiny, so I've just given up and come expect frequent nights. Isn't motherhood AWESOME? Yes. Yes it is.

The photo is really, really beautiful.
