Up all night, Sleep all day...

I know you all know this Slaughter song, so sing it with me!

Up all night, sleep all day
Up all night, sleep all day

When evening comes I am alive
I love to prowl around in the streets
It's the moonlight that controls my mind
Now I've got the power to speak
Awake from dusk to dawn
Watching the city lights
Stars are shining down
They'll be shining down
On you and I
And when the morning comes
And I'll hold you'Til the morning light

Everybody sing it now

Up all night, sleep all day
Up all night, sleep all day
(If you could see me, I'm rocking out, headbanging with my devil horns held high in the air!)

This is my theme song, man!!! Me and Hunter are rocking all night and sleeping all day! Party!!!!

Ok, it's actually FAR from a party. It's more, Hunter playing around and me sitting on the couch in a zombie like state begging him to fall asleep. Then, he actually has the nerve to laugh at me!
"Haha, Mommy! I no sleep!!!", as he shakes his head. Awww, isn't that cute?

The good side of this is that the kids go to school, so after we drop them off Hunter goes back to bed and I can go to bed for a little while. I love my bed. It's so big and comfy. And I'm so tired all the time.
The bad side to this, besides the obvious me getting no sleep thing, is that I'm getting nothing done! I don't get my errands done, or dishes or laundry... my whole day is spent sleeping. I'm just so tired.
I need to get this kid back on a regular schedule cause these graveyard shifts are doing me no good when I have a day shift to be in charge of as well.
Last night I was up till 5:00 am, got two hours of sleep and then had to get up at 7:00 to get the kids to school. The other night it was 4:00. I live for the days when he was up till only 12:30. Can't believe I used to complain about that.
So here he is, taking a late evening nap, and I know that means that he'll be up again all night. Grrrr... why did I let him fall asleep?! Oh ya, to get the stuff done that I didn't get done today cause I was sleeping!

Oh Peggie darlin' I am so sorry. I was up all night with SICK kids :( I would however trade you spots right now and you could be clean up crew here, and I'd sit and deal with the "excited" little one of yours if I could.

Hang in there momma it will work itself out.

Ya, Stef, I think I'll have to pass this time! LOL!
Hope the kiddos are feeling better, though!

So sorry the problem of Hunter being up late seems to be getting worse not better! Wish I was there to give you a hand!

OMG... I'm not the only person in the world who knows the lyrics to Slaughter. Thank you! LOL...

Alex has been keeping rather late hours himself, so I'm right there with ya... we should get videconferencing, we can set up playdates! :-)

Just wait til he's got a teenage attitude and he's the one playing the headbanging music while he's up all night... grrrrr!

Yeah, some nasty little attitude bug bit Jona this week - sure would like to know how to get rid of it, I want my kid back!!!

I guess I can't complain much about his music (although he's got to stop playing it at night!!!)- I'm the one who introduced him to Twisted Sister, AC/DC, Kiss, Slaughter, Def Leppard, and oh so many others! Shame on me! Bad Mommy!

ACtually, Roe, I copied and pasted them, and I was searching through the Poison lyric archives looking for the dumb song! LOL!!! Silly me... I should have known it was Slaughter!
