Never underestimate the power of...

... a full night's sleep.

Since it was just me and the baby last night I was roaming the house free as I please. Now, that's not to say that I can't roam around, but if I walk past my son's room I'm liable to hear "Mommy, can I have a..." Since my husband wasn't here I could watch whatever I wanted, and could type well into the night without keeping him awake or listening to him snore. (My 'office' is in the bedroom)

I stayed up until about 12:30. The baby woke periodically but I just put her back to sleep and back into the crib. I laid her down for the last time around 12:30 and to my shock, she stayed in there until 8:00 am!

That's 7.5 hours of a bed to myself people!! This hasn't happened in at least two years!!

My son is home tonight, but I'm going to try put her in the crib again.

I do enjoy the co-sleeping. I co-slept with my son for 18 months. But this time I find that I'm sleeping less and it is affecting my moods. I'm just not as good of a mom when I'm sleep deprived and sore from lying in one spot on the queen sized bed. Usually it's right on the edge (can't put the baby on the edge) on my left side.

Here's to another night with the bed to myself!

(Guess I'll need to put away all that laundry that's piled on it right now)
