|Late night in the household
||[Mar. 22nd, 2011|06:27 am]
Last night I was so wrecked I nearly went to bed at 8pm. I ended up staying up later only because I wanted to hang out with Sharon, who was actually too busy to hang, so I went to bed at 10pm. After I went to bed, Sharon had a crook guts, which kept her up until 1am.
At 4am I awoke to the sound of Lex being loudly happy. I knew immediately what the result would be, if not the cause. When I went into the room, MaybeZoe was wide awake as well because Lex had decided to play with her. At 4fuckingAM. Took a while to find out Lex had a headache, and then I had to lie with him to get him settled. Meanwhile, Zozo got progressively more unhappy.
At 6am she showed no signs of settling. In fact she was getting louder and more unsettled. By this point nappy had been checked, she had been fed (I woke Shaz a quarter hour before her alarm would go off to feed bub), and given she's teething I'd tried pain relief. Nothing was working.
Then I remembered something. It was something I'd not used with her because unlike her brother, she'd seldom had a lot of trouble settling.
I tried throat singing. Within 30 seconds she'd quietened down. By the five minute mark she was asleep. Hooray!
Now if only I had someone to help lull me to sleep...
Might be time to break out either the Dead Planet soundtrack, or the Warriors' Gate one.
