A Sensory Hangover

Something you may not know about me..... I am NOT a morning person! It doesn't matter how much sleep I get the sun will always rise to early. I especially do not like mornings after Makenzie has decided to wake up at midnight and still be awake at 1:30am!

I am pretty sure it was because she had been completely overstimulated and tired.

It was all worth it though because we had a great time at a party my friend Susan threw last night. It was a celebration party for the win and settlement on Julia's vaccine case, the retirement of her mom, the birthday of her mother in law, and the change in career paths for Susan! WOW! There were a lot of people there. It was loud and I think half the canine population was also there.

Something you may not know about Makenize...... she is very afraid of dogs.

So we claimed one room as a dog free zone and Makenzie had a great time! All giggles and laughs.

We met a ton of really great people. Susan introduced me to one of her friends who has two children with special needs. We sat and talked for a long time and really enjoyed our conversation! About 8:30pm it was time to go. Makenzie was getting tired and I could tell the noise was begining to get to her so we loaded up and headed home.

When we got home I put Karate Kid on for the boys and I laid down with Makenzie and fell asleep. This seems to be happening a lot lately! I wish that could be the end of the night for me but I still have to get Makenzie's overnight water going and dose her meds so at midnight I woke up and crawled out of bed. When I got up I looked over at Makenzie and there she lay, eyes wide open just smiling away! Ahhhhh! I got up and shut the door hoping that she would fall back to sleep.... no can do.

After getting her up, laying on the couch for a little while and putting her back in bed I think she finally went back to sleep about 1:45am! I gave her a few minutes and then started her water and headed back to bed myself! Oh the sweet pillow!

As much work as it is to get 4 kids out the door and as little sleep as I ended up getting because of Makenzie's sensory hangover  it was a great time and I am so glad that we went! 

Makenzie is finishing up breakfast and then it will be off to whatever today has in store for us. Tired or well rested the world keeps on a spinning! Wish me luck!

Believe... Prayer Works!
