Pristine is wearing a digital wrist watch lately because we are teaching her how to tell the time. So far, she’s been able to tell the time correctly and reading the number 2 as “2” and not “5” and the other way around. Also, when it was 10:02 and I said, ten-oh-two, she debated that it’s ten-zero-two because “O” is a letter not a number.
Well, because she has mastered to tell the time and seemingly done with pressing the light button over and over again, she is playing with the alarm function and set it at 3 am, without my knowledge and she wears it even in bed.
Pi-pi-pi! Pi-pi-pi came the sharp irritating noise at 3 am today. Pristine and M can sleep through anything, even on New Year’d day even with lots of noisy fireworks near them ut I woke up and turned the alarm off and couldn’t get back to sleep!
When I took the watch from her wrist, she said “No mom, it isn’t the watch. That’s the sound from my ears!” (referring to the hearing test she had from the ENT a couple of weeks back! Yeah right!
So, what will I do suddenly with extra time on my hands? I can’t cook breakfast at this hour and make noise in the kitchen. I couldn’t get back to sleep because my heart was racing – happens when I wake up because of an alarm. I DO not maintain an alarm clock to wake up everyday. It makes me nervous.
I checked my email, responded to some of them, visited other blogs, had a chat with Krista, who was enjoying a lovely evening at the other side of the globe, checked Twitter (and found out that Hugh Jackman tweets) and that’s it, the next time I knew, it was 4 am!
I usually wake up to get ready at 6 am so I was torn: should I get back to bed and sleep for another two hours (and probably wake up feeling like crap) or do “worthy” things for another two hours? I opted to sleep back and yes, I felt like crap when I woke up.
Do you feel like when you sleep again, your sleeping time kind of resets? I feel that I only slept for 2 hours!
