It's one thing for me to be up all night because I had insomnia. But it's is another to be up all night with a sick child. Yesterday Bear screamed for an hour about a sour ear. Took him to the doctor = ear infection. Scream for another hour or so after we got home. Screamed enough that Sharkbait was crying too, I think either sympathy crying or scared that Bear was crying so much.
We medicated Bear to go to sleep- Tylenol and ear drops for pain. All is well for a couple hours. Than right after our heads hit the pillow around 11pm, the screams began. Bear has a history of night terror. Just random screaming in the night, and unsure of what he needs or the ability to tell us. But these were screams of pain. Oh, it went on for so long. Finally bringing him back to our bed, so we all could get some sleep.
You would think on a KING size bed that two adults and a 30lb child could sleep just fine. Well as it turns out the person that weighs the least took up 50% of the bed. Finally at 5am I took him back to his own bed. Only to be awoken by my eldest at 6am that he was ready to get up.
