You guyssssssssssss. We were on SUCH A ROLL. We were sleeping at night and napping for two hours during the day! We were acting like normal humans and not shit sleeping newborns!
AND NOW DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME HAS COME TO RUIN OUR LIVES.
Actually I don’t even know if I can blame DST for the shit show that occurred last night. I don’t know if I can blame anything or anyone except Charlotte and her tendency to rip the rug out from under me right when I think we’ve graduated to normal routines and healthy habits. Last night she didn’t go to sleep until like 8:15, as expected with the time change. She screamed and cried but that’s nothing new because she goes through phases where she loves to scream and cry at bedtime just to make me feel good. But then she was up at 1 AM. Standing in her crib. Shrieking MAMA MAMA DADA DADA over and over and over and over until I couldn’t take it anymore and brought her to my bed, hoping against all hope that she would just roll over and go back to sleep. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. She wanted a bottle, of course. Except now she calls it BA DA BA (????) and kept chanting that like some sort of pagan ritual until I got one for her. And then I asked her if she wanted to just lay on mommy, and she said YEP so I said to myself, okay well AT LEAST she will go to sleep on me and I can lay here and try to just faint when exhaustion overtakes my body but NOOOOOOOOOOO. Then she sat up and started shouting HOW DO YOU DOOOOOOOOOOO?? Because of that MOMMY FINGER MOMMY FINGER SONG. She wanted to watch TV because NOW SHE WAS AWAKE. And so the Great War of DST 2017 began. I gave her this wonderful speech about how there was no crying in mommy and daddy’s bed and if she was going to cry she would have to go back to her crib alone and that she could stay in our bed tonight but only if she cuddled and was quiet. She was quiet the entire time and Eric and I thought I was successful in my speech until she just started wailing for Mickey. So I changed her diaper and then Eric took her to her room for a little bit and then she went into her crib and screamed bloody effing murder for 15 minutes straight just to kill me even more.
I SWEAR TO GOD THIS BETTER JUST BE BECAUSE HER BODY IS OFF FROM CHANGING THE CLOCKS BECAUSE IF WE ARE GOING BACK TO HOW WE USED TO BE I WILL DIE I WILL DIE I WILL DIE.
