Wanted: Rest 

Because a little humor, especially in the world of parenting, goes a long way. Always. 

Tonight I am so tired. The kind of tired where I’m sitting on the toilet and I start to fall asleep. Yep, that tired. 

Today was a pretty fantastic day filled with errands (the good kind, the ones you sometimes look forward to), walks with the kiddos, talking with neighbors, and of course the usual feedings, diaper changes, clean up messes, and cooking. It was a great day, even with the couple kiddo tantrums here and there. 

I’m tired though because sometimes it just never ends and there is no rest until both kids finally fall asleep. And even then there’s no guarantee one won’t suddenly wake up needing something or just screaming. And there’s no guarantee of a restful night. And because whether it’s Monday or Sunday, kids don’t care and they wake up minutes before 6am. 

It was a great day. 

Sometimes I just wish there was an epidural for motherhood / parenting.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, parenting is tough! The biggest struggle right now is the lack of good sleep. But every night I’m hopeful and it’s a sweet blessing when I do get an uninterrupted night’s rest here and there. Here’s to a lot more energy for you too!
