Rough Night

I don't write this looking for sympathy. Goodness knows I'm not the only Mom to have a sleepless night and have to go to work the next day, but I will declare I'M TIRED!

Duncan has this cold in his chest. We took him to the walk in clinic and had him checked out and it's just a cold (which is what we thought, but we wanted to make sure). But last night was such a rough night for him. He was having a hard time breathing (not so bad that he couldn't breathe mind you, we're not stupid) and it just made him so unhappy and fussy. He was so tired and wanted to sleep and just couldn't stay asleep. Our stupid humidified wasn't working either. So basically when he was sleeping I couldn't sleep because all I could do was listen to his congested breathing, and then he'd wake up a lot really unhappy. He was also running a fever. The Motrin took care of that pretty quick. Finally we brought him into our bed around 2:30 until 5 (1st time we've ever had him sleep in bed with us) so at least he got some sleep, but we didn't!

Bill has a flex day today, so that's good. He tried to talk me into calling in sick, but I don't think being sleepy is a legitimate reason to call in sick, so here I am. Ronnie, bless her, already bought me another coffee.

Yay for Ronnie! Isn't it terrifying to have your kid in be have napped with Warren on my chest, but that's on the couch. It's not a great sleep!
Sorry your night was so long. Go ahead and have some sympathy! Losing sleep SUCKS!
