Last night I of course didn't go to bed like I should have, I stayed up until almost 1am,which is very typical. Alex woke up around that time and came into our room and climbed into our bed. I tried to get him back to sleep, which he was partially, but he was rolling around, hitting me in the face and kicking. He does this almost every night, although sometimes it is later. I'd finally had enough, so I snuck downstairs to sleep on the couch. A little while later I heard some noises, and here is Alex on the top of the stairs crying, "mommy, where you at? mommy?" It was so sad, nearly made me cry, but I stayed put and let Andy take care of it, which eventually he did.
The second he woke up he also came downstairs looking for me, and not finding me once again started crying, "mommy, where you at mommy?" Awww... he's such a momma's boy, but still. Someday I have to get some sleep. I've been going on 4 or 5 hours a night, with some nights even much less since the kids started school, and I'm starting to get a little cranky. Ideas anyone? I just don't know what to do with this kid.
I thought that maybe he'd be a little upset with the kids in school all day, but he loves spending all day with me. He also loves that he can get into Faye and Drew's things without them yelling at him....

And when he's done playing he actually puts everything away neatly.
