T..I...R..E..D...What does that spell?

So I always knew that motherhood/parenting would mean less sleep and more yawns but the past month has been tough.  About 4-5 weeks ago J started waking up in the middle of the night.  Up until that time he had been a really great sleeper and it would be a rarity for him to get us up at night.  Still not sure why it all started but with suspected night terrors, sickness, late nights, travelling and just because, we have not slept well in weeks now.  I would probably pay a million dollars right now for 9 consecutive hours of sleep.  I know I am not the only parent out there that finds themselves sleep deprived but dang skippy this is hard.  I am thankful for a wonderful husband who works hard to bless our family.  I am also thankful for my Lord who sustains me daily and gives me the strength I need to get through these hard days.  I truly don't know what I would do without my faith in an awesome God. 
I am prayerful that we can figure out what is going on with J man and help him get back to sleeping well.

Maybe someone has already mentioned this, but with Joshua, we found that he was getting hungry. We started giving him a good protein snack or even two, right before he brushed his teeth and went down. plain yogurt with honey or a protein bar (at this point he actually gets both). It really helps him. Just a thought! I know it is so hard when you are all wiped out! Thankfully you are not teaching right now, right? Praying for you guys!

Actually..not done with school until this Friday...but am thankful he slept all night last night.
We have been trying to feed him a bedtime snack and that seems to help most nights. Thanks for the prayers.
