This morning we had a kid-free morning. That never happens. Can you guess what we did?
We went to bed and slept. LOL
I love my little Miss Ella Rose more than words could ever say, but I’d be a liar if I said that looking after a child with autism isn’t at times, physically and mentally exhausting. The bigger she gets, the more challenging keeping her safe becomes. Hopefully with time and improvement, she will understand things like… what is dangerous and what isn’t, etc. But right now, she has no fear… of anything.
And her sleep is sometimes not the best, which means ours isn’t either. So there we were 8:30 am, kids out the door, and I think to myself, “hmmmm…. what do I do now?”
My husband apparently didn’t need that moment of hesitation, as he was already headed to bed. He calls for me, “What are you doing?”
Me: ”I dunno.”
Him: ”Come to bed.”
Me: “You just want me to come to bed because you can’t fall asleep without me there.”
Him: (no response)
So I trudge upstairs and get into bed. I said, “I don’t think I can sleep. I don’t feel sleepy.” And the last thing I remember was fixing my pillows to get comfortable.
Then I woke up at 12:15 pm in the afternoon! And he didn’t wake up until over an hour after me! LOL
We must have really needed the sleep!
