This has been 2 very bad weeks. Both of my children (10 month premie, and 2 year old) are sick, and so am I. Needless to say I haven't slept much in 2 weeks, because one of the babies is always up at some point in the night right now (mostly the 10 month old,) My husband does not get up with them at night (actually he doesn't do much around the house, but that's a whole other problem.) I don't mind being the one that gets up, but then when my husband is getting ready for work in the morning he always wakes me up. Now I'm not a morning person to begin with, but when I'm running on so little sleep I really turn into a bear. I just don't know how to get him to leave me and the girls alone in the morning so we can sleep. I would just nap with the girls, but my 2 year old is going through a no nap phase (at least I hope it's a phase...) I am so tired, that I'm not a very patient mom right now. I hate feeling like I'm burnt out, but I think I have burnt my candle at both ends and now there's not much left. I guess this was more of a vent than a call for help. Is there anyone else out there like this, or does anyone have any suggestions?
My mom would normally help me with the girls in a situation of not enough sleep, but her and my dad both have lung issues so the avoid sick people like the plague...
