For The Sleep Deprived Parent

December 30, 2015

I've been there. I'm still there. Nighttime comes,and you are so worn out. The day had seemed never ending and all you want is for your little one to close their eyes so you can too. But they won't. You've tried feeding,rocking,singing,and wearing. You've left them to play and wear themselves out. You've tried making it quiet and still. Nothing works. They are still up and very much awake. I want you to know your not alone. 

I too want to pull my hair out and run screaming into the bathroom at about 1 am. Don't feel bad. With my first,precious Monkey, I was a working mom and I remember how much I dreaded night times because of his fighting sleep. I wished them away,I wanted them over. Now looking back, I want them back. I want those nights where he wanted to hold my hand to sleep,wanted to snuggle. I wished them away without realizing how precious and fleeting they were. 

Buggy,is getting to where he too is a fight sleeper. Why? I have no idea- I even took two different apparoaches to sleep with the boys. I was getting irritated. Frustrated even. But I reminded myself how quickly they will pass,and how one day he will be a little boy and then a man. 

So to you,my sleep deprived team mate, hang in there! Try to find a way to enjoy the long nights. Remind yourself that these moments are so precious and will pass to quickly. 

What do you do when you are up with the baby during the night?
