Why Am I Awake?

Why am I awake? Because Titus is sick once again! His ear's draining which means ear infection, and he's coughing and congested again. I just don't know what to do with him, and he's certainly not the best patient either. When he doesn't feel good, I know about it at all hours of the night. Sometimes, he wakes up, cries for a few minutes and goes back to sleep. Other times, he wakes up, cries and doesn't go back to sleep. He finally went to bed around 11:30, but he's woken up crying several times since then. Fortunately, they've just been "I'm miserable" cries because he goes right back to sleep after those. And because he's sick, I hear every little extra noise that either boy makes since I'm worried and don't want to sleep through him crying if he needs me. Of course, if he's quiet, I'm worried too and have to check on him to make sure he's still breathing. Being a mom is a stressful job. If he's quiet, I worry; if he's too noisy, I worry; if he's awake, I worry; if he's asleep, I worry. Don't worry though....Daniel is sawing logs right now:) Hopefully, I'll be able to join him in dreamland soon.


  1. Being a mother is tough, and everything is a circle of dysfunction. But it is the best dysfunction a woman could ever ask for.

    I hope Titus starts feeling better, and I certainly hope brother doesn't catch it.

  2. Ugh - I am so sorry your baby is sick. We've had things sweeping our house since December. If I get one more cold I'm going to scream. I hope everyone feels better really soon!!
