Kittens and sleep
So we are discovering that kittens do not lend themselves to a household of sleeping. It is not the kitten that is disruptive per say (although the bell on the collar must go), it is the 5 year old who wants to pet the kitten constantly. He has come to me the last two nights carrying this poor kitten saying, "mom, I don't really feel like sleeping- I just want to pet Oscar". This makes for a very tired mommy. Which brings me to this question- how many of you out there sleep while your husband gets ready for work? Just wondering? I feel guilty when I don't get up when Jeff goes downstairs to eat breakfast, drink coffee etc... but after going back to work last week, keeping up with kids, getting up several times in the night with various children, or being awake for partner snoring reasons or heartburn reasons of my own- I am soo tired! What do you do at your house?
