Mini Vent Session #1

{Mini Vent session #1. The rule is that I’m allowed to talk as fast as I want without worrying about how I’m saying it, and grammer isn’t important. Then, you have to leave your vent in the comments section. It feels good. Trust me.}

I got three hours of sleep last night. Joshua is still in our room because Lucas is still in his bed (the crib) if that makes sense. We have been slacking on getting Lucas into this bed because we’re doing 50 million other things as well. Lazy. So Joshua is in our room, in his bed- a little bassinet. So if he cries in the middle of the night, it’s pretty hard to ignore him when he’s 2 feet from your bed. He was up all night last night. Just did not want to sleep. Didn’t want to nurse, just wanted to play. I would rock, put back in bed. Scream. Rock, back in bed. Scream. Rinse, rock & repeat. My husband just tells me to let him scream. I’m sorry, but how do you lay next to your child and let him scream his freaking head off? I can’t do that. I get so frustrated when he complains about being tired when IT’S 3 IN THE MORNING AND I’M STILL NOT SLEEPING. So how exactly are you tired? You only got 7 hours of sleep last night instead of 8? I am asking him to help, like maybe rock Joshua or something and he wants me to let him cry. He did cry a lot last night. A lot. I did let him cry a lot. Then he finally fell asleep at 3am and slept till 6:40. Lucas woke up too, and my husband took care of that. Thanks honey. We need to get this bedroom done stat so Joshua can have his own room. Mom needs sleep.

{The end. Your turn!}

  1. I'm super frustrated with my legs/shoes. I need new ones because I think mine are shot, but can't get them here in Homer so I have to wait until anchorage and either run in the shoes that are hurting my legs and feet and making me achy and slow or run in new shoes and risk blisters and pain at the 1/2 marathon next week. I don't know what to do and I'm annoyed to no end. Grrrrrrh.

  2. my house is a mess and evertime i pick something up my children take it back out again!!!!!! I need a maid.

  3. ugh, been there, done that. In our last house, our kids had to share a room and Jayce was a horrible sleeper. But if Jayce were to be in his crib, he'd wake Jaina up so then I'd have TWO kids up! So I kept Jayce in our room for the first year and there was just no sleep to be had. He actually didn't start sleeping through the night until he was 2 and a half!

  4. I am so there! Yesterday we went to Sam's Club and got a mattress for my 2 year old so that we could start the process of moving her, and then our 6 month old out of the Arm's Reach and into the crib….in the other room! I HATE to hear my son crying, but I've got to accept that in order for my children to share a room, my son cant wake 3-4 times a night. So there will be some adjusting going on on the next few days. Next time you go to Costco, pick up a mattress, you'll feel a wave of peace (the beginning of the end!).

  5. To you: Hugs!

    For me: I'm exhausted. I'm supposed to be on bed rest for PTL and I have only been able to “rest” about an hour each day. Last night in 7 1/2 hours in bed I was woken up 5 separate times (completely awake, out of bed, tending to children) and when I tried to wake DH he could barely toss his arm over the baby. I'm pregnant & needed to pee and it took at LEAST 4 tries to get him to take the baby so I could get up. (he's sick & wouldn't sleep unless someone was touching him) I'm on bed rest so I can't do any of the things I want to do & it is making me frustrated.

  6. We just moved my 5.5 month old to the guest room a week ago. Well, we wrapped the guest bed up and put it in the garage so it's (almost) his room now. Not every night this week has been better, but I had a few nights when he only woke up twice which was a heaven-send! And yes, I too, am the only one waking up with him and although my husband says “just wake me up” to help come morning, he rarely wakes up to even notice all the fussing and not sleeping that goes on. Can be VERY frustrating and I should have written a venting post myself ages ago 😉

    LOVE the link above mamas! I made my DH come over and read it with me. I got a good laugh and it makes me feel better to know that other mamas are going through the same feelings and experiences. Cheered me up after a long night last night (though not as long as your night Samantha!) 🙂
