Comments for No Sleep and Six Teeth

Harriet's teethNo Sleep and Six Teeth: 04/09/07

Harriet is days away from having six teeth. I'm hours away from being up for more than a day (minus a couple hours of poor sleep here and there). At two this morning Harriet woke up. She kept us up until four. She was cranky, hungry and in no mood to sleep. Ian rocked her. I nursed her. We gave her Tylenol for her teeth. She ate a bowl of rice cereal. She drank a bottle. At long last she finally fell asleep.

This morning was one of those days I was grateful for being able to telecommute. If I'd had to get to work by 7:30 by driving, I would have had to call in sick. Thankfully when work is just in my kitchen and coffee is on hand, work is still do-able on only two hours of sleep.

Harriet's late night shenanigans also kept Sean up. We let him sleep in until 8 and he dragged himself to school a little late. Thankfully the preschool still has naptime so he was able to have a little time to catch up on lost sleep. Even with the nap he was ready for bath and bed by eight, an hour early for him.
