I had a good night's sleep only it wasn't clear through... there was a little space of not-sleeping for about two hours. But before that and after that I was just fine.
And for some reason I thought about looking at sleep disturbances as being injuries to a healthy night of sleep.
Different types of wounds to sleep:
Incision - when you're sleep is cut short by something suddenly.
laceraton - you wake more gradually. torn from sleep.
abrasion - skidding along the surface of sleep. Not really waking up, but not resting well.
avulsion - when you partially fall out of the bed and wake yourself
puncture - something enters your sleep space and wakes you and then leaves.
So last night I would say I suffered from a combination a sleep puncture caused by a 3yo who needed new sheets on the bed. And the resulting trauma to my sleep caused me to have a great deal of trouble getting back to sleep.
From 2 - 4 am? I think? I was awake. And I decided to stay in bed and read on my phone. This is probably not a good plan. I think I will get out of bed to read the next time this happens. I know that is what the sleep people recommend.
Energetic today, which makes me worry about tomorrow. I always pay for lack of sleep somehow, right?
First snow of the season today. 3yo went outside in her pajamas and bare feet before we could rein her in. Once dressed and outside she was so enthralled by the snow that she could not be coaxed back inside. I decided not to fight her on this one and packed a bag breakfast for her to eat on the way to preschool.
