So I wish my kid would sleep.
I have come to the conclusion that our son and Mister and I are not energetically matched. I know HM is a BOY. And he's two (almost 3) so by definition he is high-energy. But, I'm talking about something more than that. I believe that we are all born with an innate sort of 'energy-personality' type. For instance, Mister and I are fairly matched energetically. We are both somewhat homebodies, even though we do enjoy being social. We just have to remind ourselves that we actually enjoy being social and then force ourselves to go out and do it. Otherwise, we might never leave the house except for work and trips to the grocery store. We like relative quiet. Before we had kids we relished rainy weekends where we could pull the couch out into a bed, watch movies for hours, and eat popcorn and be totally lazy. We both seem to really operate best when we've had at least (AT LEAST) 8 hours of sleep. 9 or 10 would be preferable.
It's not that we're lazy. Though it might sound that way. We both work really hard at our careers. We both do a lot of work around the house. We just operate at a sort of low frequency most of the time and it takes a lot longer for us to recharge our batteries, so to speak.
Our son, on the other hand, I believe, is just one of those people who is the complete opposite. (Good for him!) It will serve him well in life, I think.
But it is exhausting.
I totally don't know what I am going to do when the baby comes? I'm sort of freaking out. I'm so so so tired NOW, what am I going to do when I'm up every two hours every night to feed a screaming baby? Help....
