Our one day record of sleeping through the night was quashed last night. Will appeared to sleep a couple hours at a time, but was howling throughout the night. Sometime around 3am or so, I stuffed cotton in my ears, but I could still hear him (interesting evolutionary adaption, children's cries are in a frequency no one can ignore). So again, we are zombies.
Will seems to have suffered from his lack of sleep, he is irritable and short tempered this morning. I am ambivalent about that. I sometimes feel a little resentment when the kids keep us up all night but seem totally unaffected by their own lack of sleep. So, part of me is thinking "serves you right." But then, it is us (Carly mostly) who really suffer from ornery kids, so it doesn't really benefit anyone.
Sophie amazingly, despite being in the room with him all night, appears unfazed by the experience. I don't know whether she slept through it (which she frequently does) or just rolls with it. Kudos to her.
