Sleep deprivation

I thought I was done with sleepless nights once my youngest was consistently staying in his own bed all night. The weather has been making it impossible for me to sleep.

It's been hot and muggy the last couple of nights here in Minnesota. We aren't blessed with central air. So, I read until 10:30 last night, shut the light off and waited for sleep to come. We also had a thunderstorm roll through around 3, which meant pulling the fans out of the windows. Sandman must have missed his flight, because I didn't settle down until 4 a.m.

I woke to my littlest boy nose to nose with me whispering "Mummy, are you awake?" He was hungry, it was 8:30 a.m. and so my day began.
