DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 22 August 2017

I've got nothing. Absolutely nothing. I'm too tired to have anything. Do you know what rock bottom looks like? It involves a bed with pillows thrown everywhere, a tiny happy not in the least bit tired human, bob the builder, and a Benadryl drugged mom who keeps whining "just go to bed" in between the giant marshmallows the tiny human is feeding her. I was weak. It was 1:30 AM. He was adorably cute and excited because Yes He Can!! Momma? Not so much. This was the second night in a row this child has refused sleep. I seriously don't know how he does it. Sooo much energy. Sooo happy. Maybe he isn't human.... maybe he's a gremlin.

Me? I'm exhausted and I eat when I'm exhausted. I'm attempting to be good and not run sobbing towards the vending machines. I skipped the gym. I've had coffee. I think I'm immune to coffee at this point.. I also fear I have marshmallow in my hair still. The only good part so far is my shoes match.

I will be strong. I will be healthy. I will be drooling on my desk in the next ten minutes.

Hang in there and don't eat the marshmallows in your hair.

I feel your pain. Those cute little cherub-shaped faces can wear a momma out.

If it makes you feel any better at all, you made me laugh until I cried. You are a great writer and very funny! I've been there. No sleep for years. Hard to believe we can function at all when they are little. You got this! And you've got a tiny who's worth so much more than a perfect bod. My only tip: Light Progresso Soup. easy, tastes great when hungry and filling.

Hoping he'll crash tonight and you'll get a good night's sleep.

Sending you strength and a big ole hug, sweetie. You've got a ton of support here, and you have a gut feeling for what's right for you. Jump. It's scary, but when you land, the view is incredible. Spoken from a place of BTDT. HUGS!

Been there, done that. Now I have 2 teenagers.. got up this morning and one was still awake with Netflix.. so not a lot changes.. still up all nite, but at least they're ( allegedly) self cleaning, self toileting and self feeding . I remember the exhaustion of getting undressed at night and realising my clothes had been inside out all day and I hadn't even noticed.. Today is a new day Everything is easier with sleep Wishing you an unbroken few hours You will do this Hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗

Unfortunately, I can report it doesn't change in their twenties either...but then they might self motivate and move out? LOL Lots of hugs and support! 🙆🏻
