Lately I have been really tired and not very productive. I started evaluating what could be causing such fatigue. It wasn't hard to pinpoint, my son who just turned one STILL insisted on waking up several times at night to nurse. Sometime almost continually for several hours. With the older kids we would put them in another room and let them cry it out. Now we are in a two bedroom apartment and the bigger kids are in one bedroom, we're in the other (complicated, I know). The baby sleeps in our room. I would just let him cry it out in our room, but my husband has to get up early most mornings to work 10 hours of manual labor in the heat, so he could use as much sleep as he could get. I was exhausted and frustrated, and we even tried putting him in the living room, but it wasn't a good fit because the high ceiling and larger room echoed, waking up the other kids and keeping us up, plus we couldn't totally block out the lights from the parking lot outside. So I finally de-cluttered a little bit and moved some stuff around and viola!
