A visual.

Why do I have dark circles and bags under my eyes constantly?

Let me draw it out for you. Below is a graphical representation of our sleeping setup since my child has been teething.

As you can see from the beautiful drawing above, my child has taken ownership of our little queen bed. Joe and I have to hang on to our mattress for dear life while our precious child becomes the dash (-) to our little family H.

Throw in two fur ball cats, one of which can only sleep if she's on me in some capacity, and you have our sleeping setup in Casa de No Sleep.

I think we need a king bed, yes?

Too bad about your lack of sleep, but on a positive note-I think you have a real future as an artist! It's almost eerie that your drawing of yourself looks verrry similar to the way I draw myself on the white board for my students.

I never laughed so hard! Maybe b/c I was laughing to hold back the tears as this is my truth too - to a T! I agree - we need king beds...

I never did understand why Addison insists on sleeping horizontal in our bed...glad to see we're not the only ones!

We have a CA King, and it's still sleeping-on-the-edge-and-hanging-on-by-a-thread bad! UGH

Awe! When she gets older, you can Super Nanny her back in her bed, for sure. Really you can do it now if you want, but I know it is nice having them sleep with you every now and again. I cherish my sleep too much, LOL

Oh no, that looks all too familiar. Though my drawing a little more meat on her bones, well a lot.

I laughed out loud when I saw this and then I even showed it to my husband. No joke I could have drawn this myself, minus the cats. Although my freehand skills are not as sharp as yours.

oh my goodness, I'm sorry you aren't sleeping -- well, sort of because I'm not sleeping either ;0)
but your picture is amazing.
