I lay in bed at night just staring at the ceiling. I can’t sleep, but I am sleepy. My body says go to bed but my mind is wondering in so many directions I find it hard to just fall asleep.
Two out of three children were fast asleep by 8pm last night, but our middle child decided to stay up rambling about “his kitties” and “mama and dada” for hours. I mean this 2 year old was up chatting to himself and his sleeping sister (wonder if he knew she was sleeping) until 11pm last night! Mind you, he was put in his crib around 7pm.
So not only can I not sleep due to my own mind wondering thoughts, my middle child decided that he needed to chat for hours over our baby monitor about his kitties, sister and whatever else pleased him to chat about.
I have been trying to figure out what to do to get myself asleep at night, I don’t want to take medication so what is it I can do to learn to relax more before bed? Maybe not being on the computer chatting away and doing website updates right before bed may help. I drink water, instead of caffeine before bed, so it’s not what I am drinking I don’t think.
So now I sit here this morning – ready to sleep – but the kids are up and its a new day. So off I go to be a mommy and keep my eyes open with three cups of coffee before I go to the dentist to get my xrays done!
