This waking up in the middle of the night is really getting to me. It's getting to both of us. I suppose it's part of no longer being in our 20s.
I remember going months at a time with only 4 hours or sleep. I remember going clubbing all night a few times a week and just coming home, showering, and going to work the next morning. And being just fine.
Now, I am falling asleep by 9pm. We only have to wake up once for a half hour around 1 or 2 to feed him (Hubby changes him while I go to the bathroom and gets me a glass of water while I nurse so we're both getting up). And then I get up at 4, but I've been getting up at 4 for years...at one time it was to go to the gym. Then it was because the dogs needed a run and I needed "cool off time" before showering so it would 'take'. Now I cram in getting Sasha feed, bathed, and dressed too.
But now I'm 30 and I'm feeling old and worn out.
And we're boring.
And it's all because we're parents.
I seriously think we need to get some more friends with kids. Otherwise, they really just don't get it--how hard it is to do anything.
Even just "being" is getting too hard. We need to hire a cleaning service because I just can't. And my memory has become swiss cheese and I'm starting to say things I have no memory of that don't make any sense. My husband's taken up recording my nonsense with the memo feature on his phone.
I'm also losing my patience a lot faster and losing my temper a lot more often. Not good things as my temper is very very....evil.
