Oh what a night!

Recently Paul and I have had a few challenging nights (with both boys not sleeping) and, every day as the morning approaches, I just lay there thinking ‘what a night’! This, quite comically, gets the tune of the song by the Four Seasons in my head and I start to imagine different words to it, to go with the situation I find myself in. It has actually become quite an amusing activity so I thought I would post the finished article on my blog to provide some light-hearted relief to anyone else who is currently feeling a little sleep-deprived. (Every parent reading this I suspect!).
I hope you enjoy it!

Oh what a night!

Oh what a night!
Did I really ever go to bed?
Can’t believe it’s time to start again
As I remember what a night!

Oh what a night!
The kids were up and down just like yo-yos
Why they won’t let us sleep, I’ll never know
What a drama, what a night!

Oh I,
can remember what it was like to sleep all night long
And I,
As I recall it ended much too soon!

Oh what a night!
Screaming, crying and needing a wee,
They took their turns to keep us from our sleep
And we surrendered, what a night!

Sat up in our beds and left only to wonder
Would we ever get to sleep alone under the covers?
Oh what a night.

Oh I,
can remember what it was like to sleep all night long
And I,
As I recall it ended much too soon!

Oh what a night!
Why can’t they just sleep until daylight?
Just a few hours would be alright.
What a drama what a night!

Sat up in our beds and left only to wonder
Would we ever get to sleep alone under the covers?
Oh what a night….

 

And just in case you need a reminder of the original….
