that when I desperately need my children to GO TO SLEEP they absolutely refuse to do so??? Here I sit on my boys' bedroom floor, having JUST gotten Spencer down after an HOUR and Henry, well, I'm still waiting on. I need to sew 4 slings, do the dishes and put laundry away. Can I? NO! So, instead, I blog. i wish that Henry was one of those kids that you can just lay down and walk away from, and he'll drift off to sleep. HA! He's never done that in his life. I wonder, if when he is 15, I'll still be singing, "I am a Child of God" and shh'ing him to sleep? Anyone want to guess when he'll grow out of it??? I'm seriously leaning toward puberty at this point. And most nights, he still wakes up and toddles into our room and sleeps on my floor. (Yes, he has pillows and blankets there, so fear not). I read of a 12 year old boy who did that. I'm not excited about doing this for 10 more years. It is very frustrating.
Now he is talking to himself. SHHHHHHHHH! (Grrrrrr)
I am so excited. I got a new doula client, another one for the birth center. I am SO thrilled to do out-of-hospital births. I adored my birthing experience at the birth center with Spencer and I am SO excited to do doula-work there. I'm starting to feel like a REAL doula, one with experience to boot.
Oh my gosh, go to sleep HENRY!
Derek is off supervising little student therapists, so I really need to get my child to SLEEP so I can get something done.
Well, there is no hope for me. My motivation is wanning and I'm really p.o.ed. I HATE it when he does this.
