"I'm A Little Sleepy"

Just got home from work early as my last client didn't open the door although i could see them peeping out of their curtains. Gotta love it.

Last night The Boy took his first dose of sleepy medicine prescribed by The Big City Doctor.

The Boy slept through the night for the first time in...oh...say a year?

This morning as I was getting up for work at 7:00 am he came out of his bedroom but informed me, "I'm only going to the bathroom and then I'm gong back to bed."

And he did.

This afternoon he greeted me with holy words I never thought I'd hear in his lifetime.

"I'm a little sleepy."

You know I'm Ms. Organic and all for holistic treatment but it doesn't do you much good when you're dead. Which is where I was heading from lack of sleep and cortisol levels through the ceiling from stress.

As Mrs. M says, "Thank God for drugs and the M.D.'s who prescribe them."




Amen.

Sleep well my weary mother friend.

I know with Joe, we had to play with the dosage of things to find the balance between scaling the walls and the zombie walk.He still does a sleep walk into my bed nightly, but once he arrives, he is out for the count. Bliss.

Hope it works out well for you ALL.

Yes. Anything for sleep. You know me to be the goddess of anything "naturelle" -- but that flies out the window when it comes to sleep.

Sleep, sleep, sleep --

Good news! Praying you find the right dose before school starts. Because school does start next week. And then, maybe you can sneak home and take a nap?
