note to self

dear self,

next time you decide to fall asleep with the tv on, knowing that you’ll wake up several times in the night to pee, please remember to change the channel from food network to something like, hg tv or telemundo. 

because here’s what happens – you wake up around 1:30 am, empty your bladder, waddle back to bed, rub your eyes of sleep, focus on some tasty treat (thanks to diners, drive-ins, and dives) on the tube, start drooling, baby in belly starts to stir, and then BAM! you’re hungry.  you trudge downstairs to make yourself a pb&j, pour yourself a glass of milk, head back upstairs to bed, devour the sandwich, pound the milk, then proceed to sit rather uncomfortably and full in a pile of bread crumbs, milk mustache on your satisfied face. 

and this is fine and dandy…until you realize that you’re wide awake and baby is moving around like the tasmanian devil.  you play solitaire on your iphone until your eyes become weak with exhaustion, finally fall asleep, then wake up two hours later to your annoying alarm.  time to get up and go to work!


all because you fell asleep with the tv on food network. 

lesson learned.

your friend,

  1. oh paige, that sounds quite miserable to be so restless! sorry you didn’t get sufficient sleep…darn food network! sounds like baby z likes good music and good food! you’ve got a little star waiting to come out! :)

  2. LOL, Paige! I learned that SAME lesson w/ my 1st pregnancy…watching Food Network at like 11 p.m., then some show comes on about cinnamon rolls/fried chicken/deep dish pizza (you know, all the healthy stuff) and I’d be sending out my poor husband in the winter time to fix my cravings! Needless to say, the cable as been disconnected this time around!
