Yup, that sucked

Still hate traveling, and resent the fact that I have to do it.  It is just too damn hard on me, and the fallout with the child is not fun either.  Now I have an overtired toddler who will not go to sleep, and is crying.  Granted he is crying in his crib, so that is something.

I got very little sleep last night because child kept waking up, and the would not go back to sleep.  My family was not helping by coming in and checking on him.  I know they were excited to see him, but we are left with an over tired child.

We ended up leaving after lunch because I was barely able to function.  I was not good company, and could barely think straight.  Then child did not nap much in the car.  So now we have a very, very overtired child who refuses to go to sleep.  I finally just let him CIO because I have less patience than I usually do.  But that is probably what I needed to do, anyway.

Damn it.

I think I finally hear silence…Nope, still fighting it.  But the crying is tapering off.  Finally!  Hopefully this does not mean that he is causing trouble in his room.  (Which is the other option for my wild child.)

Nope, I think I hear him stirring, but I am leaving it for Hubby to handle.  Unfortunately that never works, so I am probably going to have to go in there an get him off to sleep.

    If you ever actually time the crying/temper tantrum you’d be surprised (my mom had me do it). For my litte strong willed one, it was 45 minutes. It seems like much longer to the me.

      It does seem like much longer. He actually only cried about 20 minutes last night, but it felt like an eternity. Thanks for the comment!
