I had a birthday with poor sleeping

I had a birthday cake made by my mom, daughter and sister.  I liked that they all made it.  My mom gave me a card.  Special K couldn't wait and gave me her present a day early - a Thanksgiving card and a pinecone turkey she made at school.

I am still very tired.  I realized after reading a friend's entry about sleep training it's because every single morning at about 5am one of the kids comes to our bed for the past two weeks.  Nightmares they say.  I think after three years of interrupted sleep, my body had gotten used to the good life.  We've ditched Little T's pump, so we weren't having 3am accidents anymore with the resulting volumes of emesis to clean up.

So why are the sleep gods torturing me now?  I'm a good mom.  I deserve some sleep.  Please let my children sleep until 7am. Please.
