{You’ve gotta} fight for your right


… to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! {With apologies to the Beastie Boys.}

Most of you know I’m not a great sleeper. I’m trying all sorts of things, and at the moment I’m tracking my sleep patterns via an app. Aside: seriously, what did we do before there were apps for everything?! Anyhoo, here’s one night earlier this week.

Pretty, huh? Except it should look more like one big valley and less like a mountain range. Little wonder I’m exhaust-piped.

Given the above, I am not overly fond of the 1am muuuuuuuuuuummmmma, I want to get up and watch a movie discussion. I’ll spare you the ridiculous to- and fro-ing that goes with it, but it isn’t fun.

Sleep in my bed. Sleep in your bed. Sleep on the floor for all I care at 1am. No, I am most certainly not making you a snack. In no way, shape or form are you getting up to watch a movie.

Moses on a moped just go the f*ck to sleep!

When my alarm went off and I got up, someone promptly scooted under my pillow. But mumma, I can’t get up, I’m really tired.

No. Shit. Sherlock.

Don’t come any closer or my furry bodyguard will have to step in.

Coffee, anyone?

    You crack me up. I haven’t slept in several decades. I understand.

  2. The night before my baby was born, 6 years ago now, a mid-wife said to me: “Now get a good night’s sleep. You won’t sleep again for the next 30 years!” Don’t worry, 6 year olds sleep better than three year olds (generally). Things will get better!

    1. She’s generally pretty good, I’m hoping this is just a phase 🙂

      1. I’m absolutely sure it is just a phase. Kids come in and out of phases all the time. 🙂

    Try Magnesium Oil on the soles of her feet. My Ruby woke for hours each night and from the first night I tried it she sleeps through. We call it the fairy’s magic sleeping spray.

    1. I have some beautifully scented organic magnesium cream – I will try it, thanks!

    2. She’s gone to bed with it lathered on the soles of her feet … paws crossed!
