It Always Happens Like That

Last time I posted about Davis sleep problems was the end of April, he had been going on no sleep since the beginning of December at that time, he was up 4-6 times each night.  It was brutal and I was half insane the day I wrote the post asking for help.  That very night he slept all night for the first time since the first week of December, then he did it again, and again and again.  It was so nice.  The beginning of July he fell back into the trap of not sleeping.  He wasn't getting up 4-6 times a night though, he was just plain getting up and fighting laying back down.  I caved back into laying on the couch with him until he was totally out of it, which could take up to 2 hours.  Then putting him in his crib.  By the time this all happened it would be 5 a.m. and he'd get up at 6:30 a.m.  Let's just say I've felt joyous for the last month and a half.  A few days ago I blogged that I wouldn't be blogging anymore because I just hadn't been posting anything worth much and was tired and just felt like blogging wasn't something I had time for anymore, I was more focused on napping when Davis did during the day.  Is it strange that the day I wrote my "farewell for a while" entry that he started sleeping all night??  I am positive the sleep problems have had to do with the fact he got his first 4 molars over the summer and is currently working on all 4 eye teeth.  Anyway you look at it, lack of sleep sucks and does something to your mind that you cannot even explain.  I give props to the working moms that deal with children with sleep issues, I just cannot imagine going to work and trying to focus on something important.  Not that what I do isn't important, but seriously, going into a job where you have to concentrate on serious things and make no mistakes has gotta be brutal sometimes when you haven't slept in days.
