Trader Joe's Bruschetta Pasta RecipeSo it never fails… every time there is a thunderstorm my toddler is up crying. The recent storm decided to make a loud clash of thunder around five a.m. this morning. So after attempting to settle my newborn at four am and she refused to sleep anywhere but in my arms I decided to give up on sleep and just snuggle my babies helping them rest in my bed. That’s after Katia awoke at 10 p.m., midnight and 1 a.m. It’s actually pretty impressive that I’m typing let alone walking or talking today. I feel like I’m drunk twenty four seven and not the fun buzzed part of being drunk, but the part where you get tired and don’t feel well. Katia really needs to start loving sleep soon or bumping into walls will become a normal start to my daily life.
