Morning..... 8am this WORLD.
And.... all I have to say is 'OH, what a NIGHT'.
Yesterday we had a fabulous afternoon at some relatives. We all had a great time, James especially as he was playing with chickens all afternoon. Who would of thought chickens would be so calming?!
Anyway, on the way home James and Scarlett fell asleep.
I tried to wake James, but he couldn't be woken. He was exhausted.
I thought I would take the opportunity to go to bed early myself.
I watched the clock... 10, 11, 12... 1.
Just as I drifted to sleep at 1am James started screaming for me from the other room.
I went in to him and he requested we go to the lounge room.
He does this when he has some anxiety, he feels safe on the corner of the lounge. James fell straight back asleep.
On the lounge.... I watched 2, 3.... Just started to drift and James was AWAKE. He booted me from the lounge and ran to the light switch and lit the entire lounge room. He was screaming at me to get ready and go to the shops GRRRR. Thankfully Theo came and took over and James went back to sleep.
In the bed again next to Scarlett I watched... 4.
I maust have gone to sleep just after 4am.
Up at 7am and I am absolutely shattered!!!!!
The first thing James screams at me when he comes in this morning was, 'get up, get ready, go to shops'......
These are the days I struggle with. The days my insomnia takes hold. I am exhausted and I can't just spring out of bed and be the Autism slave that he needs me to be. Lets not kid here, I am like a slave a lot of the time.
I anticipate many coffees today.
Much love, Sharna xx
