I don't know what was going on last night, but no one slept well. It was like caffeine was pumping through our air vents. The restless night is catching up with me...kids seem unaffected haha
And these are just some of the reasons...
On Mondays we sleep in...
But really, last Monday and today, the boys and I stayed in bed nearly as late as possible. Weekends are tiring, y'all! :)
And moms everywhere said "DUH."
I don't know about you, but I'm going to bed at the old Daylight Savings time tonight. The extra hour felt like 6 extra hours. I'm like a toddler, clearly need more than one day to ease into this.
Do we really need a chart to tell us when our kids should go to bed?
That chart was shared like half a million times! Did it tell you anything you didn't already know?
I'm not being snarky (this time); I'm actually asking.
5 years ago, when I hadn't really slept in 3 years, it was hard to look ahead and know that I would ever sleep a full night again.
So if you're stuck in a pattern of up every hour through the night and/or up for the day super early, know that someday, in the near or distant future, your kids will let you sleep in.
I'm partially being serious-- being stuck in that pattern is exhausting in every sense of the word.
I'm partially being silly-- nah nah nah nah nah-- my kids let me sleep till 9 (and bonus! the house is not a mess)
Remember that time we were on vacation and we slept later than we do at home?

It's a hard job for anyone, but it has its perks!
Remember when I asked about sleep patterns, and complained about being tired? Yeah...
(This syndrome is also a good excuse for those Mommy Lost Her Phone stories!)
