About Ready To Do Something Drastic

I feel like I haven't slept in about a thousand million years. I know some mothers have it much worse, and I know I should be grateful he only wakes at 1 am and then again at 4 am. But fukkit. When he wakes up at 4am, his day begins and he wants to fucking play. And i can put him down on the bed right next to the boyfriend, and let The Kid cry, and the boyfriend will sleep right fucking through the din.
How unfair is that? I cant even sleep if I can hear The Kid tossing and turning. He doesn't even have to be crying. And the worst thing is, boyfriend gets up in the middle of the night to go have a pee, gets back into bed and makes a noise tossing and turning or wakes me up for a chat, and then The Kid wakes up too. And I'm left to deal with wide-awake Kid while all I want to do is get some fucking sleep.
People keep telling me it gets easier as they get bigger. Fuck that. I want it easier now! I dont ask for much. All I want is a little more sleep.
Please??

I really hope it gets easier for you. The tossing and turning kills my sleep too...

The only thing that wakes Mr. Kaos is when K (who still crawls into our bed every night at almost 6 years old) kicks him in the ribs.

but that kind of makes me laugh.

I wish I had words of comfort. All I can tell you is that you are going to have to learn to sleep while The Kid plays around in his cot.

ooer, ouch... does the bf not even wake up if you jab him and tell him to take over?

barely. He puts The Kid on his chest and goes back to sleep while The Kid wriggles and tries to get away.

is it true that maternal instinct makes you aware of it cos I can sleep through a house alarm going off ontop of me....
I think I may be able to sleep through babies
