I'm sad to report that the sleep thief that I've had so much trouble with in the past has returned. Just when you think you've gotten rid of it you get slapped on the back of your head and you hear it taunting you. Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah!!! (Rude little sucker.) Oh yeah! If I ever catch you sleep thief I'm going to strangle you! How do you like them apples?!!!
Um, yeah, I'm really tired right now. Desperate for sleep actually. And my head, oye it hurts. I need sleep. Guess I'll go try to catch some Zzzs. Again. Wait, how many times have I been in bed tonight? Two? Three? I've lost count. Meanwhile, look at my baby's sleeping face! That picture kills me every time I look at it. She was seven or eight months old when that photo was taken. I remember that day as if it were yesterday. We were at the Little Rock Zoo with my parents. Violet loved everything but it was easy to tell, even then, that her favorites were the elephants and the monkeys. She was tuckered out by the time we were ready to leave. Oh, to be able to sleep like that!
