Okay its has been a while since I have been up two or three times a night with a child, I know you all feel sorry for me. :0
Well last night I was up oh about four times with two different kids. First of all Noah has been having these wierd times every night almost exactly an hour after he falls asleep when he wakes up sleep walking and asks about the strangest things and is clearly in distress, yesterday he asked me how to make the snacks in his lunch box to which I replied 'you have a yogurt tube, granola bar and fruit cup all of which I buy so you don't need to make them' then the other night he was distressed about a 'ploovie' I asked him what is a ploovie? and he didn't know. He has strange sensations in his hands and only falls asleep again with ice and a pair of mittens over his hands and the ice. This happens every night and we have been to the doctor and they are sending us to a pediatric neurologist for further tests..so pray about that!
Then Ezra was up and he was hearing strange things and couldn't fall asleep so he came in our room and lay down on the floor and kept on complaining about what he was hearing and Conrad and I are trying to figure out what is up and all we came up with was that maybe because his nose was stuffed and ears maybe plugged so he was hearing the blood flow in his ears???? who knows ..I asked him if he was hearing music and maybe needed to go create a symphony at the piano like Mozart....okay so I was half asleep, who knows maybe he is a prodigy and was hearing a whole symphony in his head...I can dream right?? lol He only fell asleep at about 3am with my iPod listening to praise and worship.
So I am lacking sleep and enjoying every drop of coffee and could use and IV hook up!!! Man it has been a while since I have been up with kids, all you out there that are still getting up with your toddlers or infants I have a renewed appreciation for you...keep on going ladies!!!
Have a great day all I am off to grab another cup of Java!! Mmmmmm
