I feel tortured

My kids have slept so very little lately that I think I am losing my mind. They got up this morning at 3:30 am, I couldn't get them to nap at the same time all day, and after being asleep for an hour tonight my youngest is now awake with teething pain.

I fantasize about them wanting to sleep in as teens. Someone please tell me that really happens.

(The youngest beast has returned to the land of nod. Goodnight ladies)

Awwww... It IS torturous to not get any sleep :(

You must have two young ones close in age?

It will get better! It really will!
Hoping they both sleep in for you tomorrow!

They are 1 and 2. I'm hoping for some relief soon. My oldest has never slept through the night and he sees a specialist soon and I'm trying to wean my youngest so I'm not an all night diner.

Sleep deprivation makes you crazy!

That's uh, pretty bad. I'm convinced kids nap on opposite schedules on purpose. They're testing our readiness for SEAL training.

I feel your pain, mama.  There have been days where my baby is up all night, another wakes up shortly after I get her to bed...then it's school and juggling daily life.  Having 7 kids under 11 during the cold and flu season is even worse!!!  Hang in there!

My teen sleeps somewhere from 8am to 10am on the weekends. But even if they get up early as teens, they're able to take care of themselves.

You deserve an award. 7 under 11?! I used to think I wanted 3, but I'm done at 2. My body can't take another bout of this.
