//Tired and Happy and Crazy//



I am tired. So tired.

My eyes are heavy and prone to close.  I feel the energy exercised to keep them open and all the while, my limbs are drooping.  When I was childless, I would have napped.  I would have rested.  But these two children of mine keep me on the move and never have I been so stretched.  Pushed farther than I have ever been, only to narrowly escape the breakdown and ironically return to love.  The love that comes with energy and life.  Fullness.  I feel so crazy.  So empty yet so incredibly full.

I am not trying to complain.  I am making a commitment to honesty.  Because, and let's seriously be honest, we all get a little self-conscious and begin to compare when we read the blogs of other mother's.  They look so perfect.  Their kids look so happy and we are holding our screaming child.  It's dangerous because we can start to think there is something wrong with our child.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with our children.  Their children cry too.  All children cry and don't believe anyone who says their child doesn't.

Here I am.  Praying to God my children will sleep tonight.

We co-sleep, yet he doesn't sleep.  at all.  My husband suggested version of "cry-it-out" and I flipped at him.  I'm sorry for it and I know he does not really want to to let him cry it out at all.  We are just tired.  And happy.  So incredibly happy.

Parents can be so crazy.


The sweet face that keeps us up all night. ;)

  1. Hang in there mama!! I've been up since 5 am. Im so ready for bed time too but mila JUST woke up from a 3 hour nap. And yeah I've never tried CIO but I've noticed people who do sleep training complain even more about being exhausted then I do. haha! I think the only miracle trick to being well rested is a nanny and a wet nurse.
