Joe's basically got that under control.
They are not from fear of not having the nursery ready in time.
Again, Joe is knocking that out like a champion.
And they are not from my concerns of losing that baby weight come early 2012.
For I'm sure Joe will have me signed up for a triathlon in early Spring.
I get up several times in the night because:
-I am way too hot. Those hormones really do a number on your body temperature.
-I am dying of thirst. I have never drank so much water in all my life.
-I have to use the restroom. Please see reason above and my new camel-like behavior.
Now I do believe in the biological reasoning behind many things.
Think about young children who put everything in their mouths when they are young.
It is not just to see their parents make that funny stick-out-your-tongue look while saying, 'Yuck-y.'
It is a sort of biological 'training' to build their immune system.
In the same way, my restless nights are biological training too.
They are to help me get used to being up several times a night with a newborn.
It's my body preparing itself to wake up on command every few hours.
And I accept this. I really do.
It still doesn't help me stay awake at work though.
I don't think 40-hour work weeks were considered when this biological schedule was set up.
But why just me, I ask you?
Shouldn't Joe get some sort of training too?
To this, I answer yes. After all, he'll be waking up sometimes as well, right?
Which is why I turn the hall light on, which shines perfectly on Joe's side of the bed, every time I wake up in the middle of the night for those pesky callings.
For biological reasons, of course.
