Sleep, sleep and more sleep

Last Wednesday night, Ashley had a nightmare in the middle of the night and came barrelling into our room. In the sleep stupor we were in, we told her to climb in bed with us and blissfully went back to sleep. For like ten minutes. Ashley is a very "active" sleeper and constantly tosses and turns. My alarm goes off at approximately 5:35am and I promptly turn it off as to not wake Ashley. Of course I fail to get out of bed and wake up again at 6:15am. Damn, have to completely rush to get out of the house. So Thursday night rolls around. Ashley cries out at some point in the night and Ray goes in to check on her. The next thing I know he is back in our room asking me if it was okay for Ashley to just come to bed with us. Sure, why not. And once again, a sleepless night. So Friday night (can you guess where this is going), same thing. Saturday Ray and I vow not to let her sleep with us, and we didn't. She didn't sleep too well in her room, but at least she was in her room.



And both girls have a cold now. Any bets on how long it will take Audrey to get another ear infection?

Awwww - poor thing!

Man, I'm not sure if I want to get together with you - it seems like your kids are always sick! :-) I'm just teasing of course!

That is THE most adorable picture - I love it!

I lay odds the ear infection hits over night tonight.

Hope she doesn't get an ear infection :( Poor baby. Hope you all are sleeping better. LOVE LOVE LOVE the picture--so adorable!!

It's amazing how quickly kids figure things out. Heres hoping for no ear infections this time! And, gah, that girl is cute.

Awe, precious little girl.

I'm so proud of you for sticking to your guns! Silly Girl is also a VERY active sleeper. I think I got a fist to the face at least three times last night. She woke up at 1:00 and I simply brought her to our bed. I figure it's easier that way but now that I think about it, I probably wouldn't lose any sleep if I just stuck it out and made her stay in her bed b/c when she's in mine, I sleep like shi-yat anyway.

I'm guessing less than 24 hours. I only had one child who was plagued with ear infections every.time.he.got.a.runny.nose! It nearly drove me insane.

I feel your pain.

I hope she doesn't get an ear infection. My oldest daughter had one every other month until she turned a year old and then they stopped.
Beautiful picture. She's very precious.
Oh, I can also relate to the sleepless nights.

That is the cutes photo! As I remember, ear infections don't take their time showing up. I hate when you go to the doc and they don't see anytrhing and you know you'll be back in a couple of days and low and behold there is an ear infection! Hope your doc listens to you.

Poor little sweetie.

:(

Even though my two are twins, they usually manage to NOT get sick at the same time. Which is amazing because they are CONSTANTLY in one another's personal space. My son even got the chicken pox (he had the shot, but it apparently didn't "take" for him) and my daughter was just fine. She had strep throat and he had nothing.

Weird.

I hope that Audrey gets better soon! And I hope you get that much needed sleep....

I so feel your pain.
