My Saturday Struggle is starting really, really early this weekend and I’m not especially thrilled about it. I’m going to about get real with you guys; real gross.
Lately, I’ve been sweating in my sleep. It’s terrible. At first, my psychiatrist and I thought it was because I was weaning off my Klonopin and my body was basically withdrawing from them. Then we thought it may be the Zoloft; some people sweat as a symptom. However, it’s been happening again since my surgery. 😦
Last night I woke up at 1 am just dripping. I was wet, my nape hair was wet, the sheets were wet; everything was just wet. Part of the problem last night was that I had a nightmare that I couldn’t seem to wake myself up from. Once I was awake and realized how wet, sticky, and uncomfortable I was I couldn’t go back to sleep obviously so I got up and took a shower. However, that woke me up. It took me over an hour after my shower to fall back asleep.
To top it all off, I told Tyson I would get up with Tate in the morning. And of course, he woke up at 4:30 in the morning! 4:30 people! Wide eyed and ready to eat and play.
Needless to say, I am exhausted. Thankfully Cash is still asleep and Tate has been relatively easy this morning. And to be completely honest, I’m just counting down the minutes until I feel it’s appropriate to go wake Tyson up and ask him to switch spots so I can catch a few zzz’s before we start the day.
I know this is just a part of parenting, but this was never a part of parenting Cash. He has always been a great sleeper. Slept through the night fairly early and likes to “sleep in,” at least compared to his brother. I am looking forward to the times when Tyson and I don’t have to get up before 5:30 AM with the kids (TATE) on the weekends.
I hope everyone else is having a great weekend and a fun Saturday!!!
