No sleep and a sick child

Who can function on 2 hours of sleep? Definitely not me. Or Derwin. We are two people that need our sleep and here we are with a child who still does not sleep through the night all the time. I'm running on empty most days, though I don't know how I do it. So far, Aidan is proving to be a pretty good sleeper - let's hope he keeps it up.

Kirsi is sick now, poor thing. She was totally fine yesterday. We had a friend of hers, Zane, come over and she was good. Once she had her shower, her nose started running and by 9:00 she had woken up three times and was super congested. We gave her some Motrin and hoped that it would do the trick. She woke up at 12:30 and could not settle down at all. So, we brought her into bed with us, thinking she would feel more comforted and be able to sleep better. No way. Instead, she completely woke up and was awake until 5:00 this morning!!!!! How can that be? I just don't get it. And then she was up for the day at 6:30! So, she had 5 1/2 hours of sleep last night. And us? We had 2 hours. And I have to tutor this afternoon for two hours and Derwin has his master's course until 8:00.

At least Aidan had his 12 hours of sleep last night!
