Early Mornings

Early mornings all generally start for me with some degree of screaming.Not mine. Allees. Bless her little heart, but Allee sure does know how to startle me right out of a dead sleep. Generally I'm not in the best of moods when it happens either. When I don't just leave her to fall back to sleep on her own I do go into her room and pick her up, just to put her right back in bed after rocking her a bit, but today was different. I took her out into the living room changed her diaper and we put on Disney Channel. Its been awhile since I've done this. takes me back to when I would do this with Elena.

Oh insomnia. We meet again.In the immortal words of Charlie Brown. "Good grief!"Not sure why I keep experiencing these bouts of sleeplessness. It is (for lack of a better term) exhausting. I mean, I feel tired physically, but my eyes want to stay open and my mind wants to keep racing. Makes me think that I should read or something, but my brain doesn't want to compute.Maybe I'll give counting sheep a try.Wish me luck.
