Not again

Baby spawn seemed fine all day yesterday, she even slept all night the night before. Then just before bedtime she starts acting weird. She appears to be scared over some things. She gets kinda clingy. Then when I put her to bed she cries for damn near an hour. She finally goes to sleep.

Then at 2 am guess who is up? She would not go back to sleep. I bring her up to our bed where she proceeds to tell me " no, momma, no night night"

Why wont you go night night!!!!!!!! I am going crazy here!!! Cant you see that?

Before bed and while she was in bed she would say " owe"....So I would ask her what was wrong. " juice momma" well I told her you do not get juice in bed...But she contuined with her "owe" for a long time....

Now is this kid really in pain, or is it a desperate attempt to get more attention?

Did she wake up in the night because she was scared or in pain or because she had crap in her diaper?.....

Being a parent is the most gut wretching job of all. Its like you totally lose yourself. You constantly worry about your spawns. Your heart aches and you feel an empty feeling in your chest if you think something is wrong with them. You no longer think for yourself. Your spawns consume your every waking thought.

The moment you think they are ill, all hell breaks loose. What was a good day, has all of a sudden become one of the worst. And at least if your spawns are older and can verbalize what they are feeling you no if its an emergency situation or not . When your dealing with a 2 year old whose favortie word are " Dora, oots (boots), juice, night night, no, and owe" you kind of are clueless as to what their potential aliment is. Maybe they are not feeling good, or maybe they are just pissed off about something. How the hell are we suppose to know?

Now my gut is telling me she is not having night terrors. But what is it? I don't know. Maybe she is going thro some phase of sorts. Maybe she is in pain somewhere.

Why don't toddlers and babies come with a freaking manual? I swear my ticker cant take it anymore.

I am taking her to the doctor again today, and I am going to demand something be done. They are either going to do some bloodwork, or a full damn body scan!!! Or give me a new modle that sleeps and does not complain about being in pain every 20 minutes. Got it doc?!!

If I knew having spawns was going to take a toll on my ticker, and make me feel like this, I may have got a dog first.

I will update you as it warrants...Have a good weekend

I know exactly how you feel! It's so hard not knowing what's wrong or if anything is wrong. I hope it's nothing serious with her. I know all about those sleepless nights and not knowing what to do. It's very draining! I wish you lots of sleep this weekend!

re: the manual - someone forgot to give me mine - so I can't help you there.

I hope that baby spawn gets over this phase and it's nothing big or serious... I absolutly hate it when little ones aren't feeling well.

See more people need to be like the Lumpy. While your worrying about em and trying to care for em I am devising ingeniouse plans to dispatch them and make them so uncomfortable that they up and leave of their own free volition.

In all seriousness though I know exactly what you mean. Although I'm lucky in that since my wife decided to breast feed and does not work she gets midnight detail. Of course she likes to do that detail in the bed next to me so I wake up anyways but at least I dont have to get out of the nice warm bed.

Hang in there. I hope today's doctor visit definitely helps things. Poor baby and you too! :)

My 2 year old is going through a very similar thing right now. Like clockwork, he is up and crying for his momma at 1:45 a.m. He's been extremely restless with sleep for just under 2 weeks now. (I was going to comment on one of your recent posts about it but didn't want to seem like I was belittling your own situation!) Last night he was restless but finally calmed himself down and slept through the night (finally!) However, he is just getting over a cold - and I associate it to his having a sore throat, etc. Have them check her ears again, her throat again. It's just GOT to be something like that, don't you think?!

Monkey child is also having slee problems. Up at 5:00 a.m. on the nose every day. We always march her right back to bed, but most mornings, she just keeps getting up every 10 minutes or so. It's a phase, I know it. At least that is what I am telling myself to get through it!

I hope all goes well at the doctor!

My daughter went through a stage where we thought she had the night terrors... Turns out she was seeing the shadows from her toybox. Now the lid has to be securely on and fastened. Worked wonders.. she started sleeping through the night.. and the mysterious pains went away.

Im thinking about you and hoping that the doctor or your daughter figure out a happy solution :)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

thanks guys, I am gald i am not the only one going through this.

i took her to the dr this morning and he said he didnt think there was anything "wrong" with her. she had a crap laod of wax in her ears, so they arigated them, then they took a urine sample to rule out a UTI. so we will see.

I am hoping this will pass. but it seems to be going around..LOL

I do wish you sleepfilled nite SOON girly!! Like I mentioned before.. my 2 yo does this as well. And here lately she's been holding her right arm and not using it, and moving it every so gently, ect., which there was issues with that from when she was born.. so I know whatcha mean about "not knowing"! Uggggg!!! My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to ya chick-a-dee!!!

This reminds me of that movie, Honey I Blew Up the Kid, where the kid keeps saying, "No NAP!!"

Dottie said...

Bless her heart and yours! I hope that she feels better soon and you get some rest! I hear you on the manual thing. I have a toddlers to teens without a damn manual, not to mention they forgot to send one with the husband!!!! I need one for him pretty badly sometimes, too! Hope you have a good weekend!

Wethyb said...

Ditto to what Momma model didn't come with an instruction manual either.

Hope it gets better soon and hope nothing's wrong.

Have a good weekend!

Kristen said...
