Tiredness is in my name

Ever since HY started school, he had been having night tremors, screaming episodes and night cryings. Frankly speaking, our limits and tolerance are stretched. I feel awfully tired. Hy had also started to refuse to sleep in his own cot and in his room next door. Therefore, 3 days ago we allowed him to sleep in our bed. Night time became more peaceful though he still screams during pjs changing time and he'll wakes up crying for milk once in the wee hours!
If I refuse it to give to him, he'll cry loudly waking up hubby and hk. Thus, I really have no choice but to give in. This also mean ive to wake up twice: once to give milk to him and the other time to give milk to hk.

To make matters worse, with Hy sleeping in our bed, I'm left with very little space. I'm often left with sleeping at the edge of the bed. This means the quality of sleep I have is often very poor as I can't flip around as much anymore. We tried transferring him to the old and smaller cot in our room but he will wake up screaming and crying to be carried to our bed.

I'm considering taking my mil's advice to sleep on the mattress on the floor. Hopefully HY would follow suit and I'll get to 'jump' right back into bed once he falls asleep.

Rare moments

I didnt get to sleep due to my freelance work on sat morning. I had to wake up at 2am and start working at 3am until 6am. After that I had to rush home to express breastmilk and try to rest for a while. I dun usually get jobs so early and this was the first time that I had done it.And it had indirectly caused my own mother to be inconvenienced as well. She came over to help me care for my boys and was worried that I oversleep, so she didnt sleep much either.

Therefore until today, I am still feeling tired and decided to sleep abit later.
Around 9plus or 10am, I was partly awoken by hy who came into my room. Saw him peering at me and then he climbed up my bed to snuggle next to me. I moved to the middle of the bed not touching him to give him more space and he followed suit. He pressed his small body against mine and buried his head into my chest.
My little boy is so sweet. He didn't try to wake me but just laze around in bed with me. It is the first time he didn't make noise or disturb me because he is always active and constantly walking or running around, playing with toys or things loudly.
