Why Am I Still Awake

For months I've been praying to the lord to just give me 5 straight hours of sleep. I never got it. For months I endured night time rendezvous with two little boys. Night terrors, nursing(snacking), teething, just plain old hold me time... I didn't sleep... Ever! So now Little Bear is sleeping sooo much better and Munchkin isn't waking up screaming as much, and what am I doing at 12:06am? Sleeping? No... I'm on this silly little (but very cool) iPad. Hubby's sleeping, Munchkin is sleeping, Little Bear is sleeping... Hell, even the dogs are sleeping. But am I? No. What is wrong with me? Could it be that all day... ALL DAY.. Someone needs me, I'm doing something for someone else all day. Some call it the witching hour... I call it the quiet hour(s). Time for me! (is this selfish?) no one calling me, or asking me to do anything. No one needing my attention.

Just me. Sigh.. If only I wasn't so tired.

  2. Totally understandable to want to have some time for yourself but you also need rest. It's just healthy for you. I'll be praying for wisdom to find a way to juggle being a mommy and taking care of your health. You need it:) I'm happy I discovered your blog and I am now following you thanks to Finding New Friends, and it would be so nice if you could share the love back on my blog;)

  5. Hi!
    I'm a new follower from the blog hop!
    No it is not selfish to want "me time." It is so hard when the kids are little. Soon they'll be a bit older and you'll get your sleep again! My kids are teens and while I get my sleep, I struggle for "me time."
    Have a great weekend!
    Hope you'll hop by and visit my blog too!

  6. Everyone needs and deserves time for himself! So enjoy and hopefully there will be more to come. And I'm typing that on an IPAD, those little suckers can be addictive:-)

  7. It is STILL hard for me to sleep and my kids are older. I wish I had some good advice, but instead I say "I understand" and hope you can start sleeping better SOON!
