"Mummy, I don't want to sleep, I want to play toys."
"Mummy, I don't want to sleep, I want to read books."
"Mummy, we're not closing our eyes, open your eyes mummy!"
"Don't close your eyes, mummy."
"Mummy, we're not sleeping, we're resting only. "
"Mummy, we're not sleeping, we're pretending to sleep only."
"Mummy, wake up! wake up! The sun is out!"
Yaaaaawwwwn! This is why parents of toddlers don't get very much sleep ie because there are just too many lovely things for toddlers to learn, see, do and play, they just refuse to sleep. Top that up with another baby in the house and ...... "sleep? what is that???!!!!" Yaaaaawwwwn!
Well, I never get to sleep until both of my children sleep. Sometimes it is really tiring to hold back sleep/wait until they both fall asleep. It is even more tiring when I cannot fall sleep after they both fall asleep (knowing I've just wasted the only time/opportunity for me to sleep). I'm rambling because I'm sleepy. Yaaaaaawwwwn! Zzzzzzzzzz.............
