How was your week? It’s been nearly four years since I had a decent night’s sleep and this week I have been feeling it. Having a child who finds it hard to sleep through the night (despite trying possibly every known sleep inducing technique known to man) is exhausting on so many levels, and some weeks it really starts to get you down. Some nights you JUST REALLY WANT TO SLEEP! I survive mostly by sneaky naps on the couch whenever I can, trying to make healthy eating choices and drinking lots of water…as well as enjoying more than a cup or two of coffee each day!
So with today’s popular parenting posts I raise my coffee mug to all of those parents struggling to get enough sleep. We are in this together! There are some great reflections on a range of parenting issues in this collection so I hope you find something to inspire your parenting, whatever stage or phase you are in.
