Sleep is overrated #MomLife

I hate to even say this out loud in fear of jinxing myself, but my son is finally sleeping through the night.  21 long, exhausting, mind numbing months and he is FINALLY sleeping!  For the last year I’ve monitored our daily routines, kept a food journal & encouraged a healthy bedtime routine.  I’ve tried to do everything under the sun to pinpoint what I was doing right or wrong… at the end of the day it was up to him.  It was my son who decided one day he wasn’t going to be a nighttime bandit.

You would think that after almost two years of sleep deprivation I would cherish a good night’s sleep.  Yet, every night I lay awake staring at the wall; almost waiting for him to wake up screaming & attempting to climb out of his crib. 

Here’s to hoping I get rid of these dark circles & get use to this amazing gift my son has given me, sleep!

  1. Mine is still waking up 2-3 times a night -__-”
    while I’m driving my daughter to her gymnastic’s practices, I caught myself dozing off *Dangerous*
    Desperately need my sleep back & being anemic doesn’t help 😦

  2. So glad to read this! My 10 month old still wakes up a few times a night and I was beginning to wonder if she was the last one (based on all my friends whose babies have slept through the night since 3 months…lucky them!). So happy to hear I’m not alone 🙂
