Who needs sleep anyways...
“You can sleep when you’re dead”. Is what my husband tells me all the time. Sure, I can do that...but I won’t be able to enjoy it if I’m dead.
Before kids I had no problem staying up late and then sleeping half my day away. Now when I put my baby down for the “night” I am going to bed shortly after. Why? Because this kid has the most inconsistent sleep schedule ever. One night he’ll sleep for 10 hours straight while other nights he’s up every couple. My favorite nights (insert sarcasm) are the ones where he just wants to snuggle and not go back to sleep for over an hour, only to be up again in a couple more. It’s exhausting! I can’t be the only mom on this sleep struggle train, can I?
Now, I can hear it already from the peanut gallery. “Let him cry it out”, “you shouldn’t of had kids if you wanted to sleep”, “they’re only little once”. Yes. I know all of these things. No, I didn’t think I would have a stubborn, spitfire of a child who demands what he wants when he wants. If we let him cry it out- he usually pukes. Who wants to clean up puke at 3am? I sure don’t! I’ll take his snuggles over puke any day!
Oh, did I mention I’m pregnant? Add that exhaustion into these sleepless nights and I’m practically a walking mombie.
It’s 3am and this is the second time my baby has been up. The first time he was up for over an hour! He finally went to bed at 1:15. And here we are at 3:10 doing it all over again.
So, for now just give me all the coffee! I’ll be able to sleep again someday. Today is just not that day.
I hope if you’re reading this you can either relate to it OR you are actually getting a solid night of sleeping!
