I go to bed when my toddler goes to bed. I wake up when my toddler wakes up. And I nap when she naps. You would think I would feel some element of sleep satisfaction!
I think one of the problems is the fact that I can't fall asleep fast. I don't sleep solid either. I'm pretty sure that's just because I'm a mom now and my daughter's bed is side-carred to my side of the bed. Regardless, I don't get the sleep I want. Or need.
Take now for instance... Emma is asleep next to me and has been for 40 minutes. I SHOULD be taking advantage of that since she will be waking me up at 7am. But no. I'm laying here, groggy, on my phone. Even if I tried to zonk out right now my mind would come up with a million reasons not to.
- My husband's almost home from work
- I could use some food
- I'm thirsty
- I should use the bathroom again
- Did I unplug the toaster?
- Are the blinds closed?
- Shoot I forgot to throw that diaper away....
Once I run around fulfilling my minds running commentary hopefully I will be able to sleep.
Thank you for listening to me ramble.
