    Default Mommy on autopilot

    Hi, I'm V and I am on autopilot - sleepwalking it seems. Day before mini-man who just turned 6 weeks slept poorly. So I was finally up at 5 am. I dove to deep sleep shortly after 8.30pm when he finally settled for the night. Woke up at 10.30pm to feed and change him and found my 2 year old still going from bedroom to bedroom so sent her off to daddy and big sister who were still also up and dove back to sleep. I woke up at around 2.30 as my arm felt wet, turned...and found mini-man sleeping next to me!!!!
    So naturally I thought he fussed I didn't hear and dh put him in bed next to me. But apparently not - dh fell asleep in girls room!
    And I thought I've seen it all with sleepless nights and 3 kids after!

    True!
    However we have decided he must be secretly walking when we can't see.

    Lol! (On the walking part)

    On #3 I felt like it took me so long, probably 6 months to get back into the grove.... Bed times, food schedules, housework, etc. autopilot sounds great, I'm more like a zombie, lol. Bed sharing really helped me catch extra zzzzzzs but that is my preference and I know that doesn't work for everyone!
