Hello everyone! It’s time for another week of Mommy Confessions!
I hope you had an awesome break, and are getting all your holiday confession posts ready for us to read (and laugh about, and sympathize with.)
This past week has been my nightmare. Not one of those horrifying types that wakes you up. No, more like the slow kind that you walk carefully around, but you know something is going to happen. Something terrible.
It finally backfired for us (or, I should clarify, “me,”) on Saturday night. You see, for a back-story, we’ve had a jam-packed week. And all of you with small children know that family gatherings and such equal no naps.
After a day of no naps, needless to say, Vivien fell asleep on the hour long car ride home. There was no avoiding it, she was way too tired to attempt to keep her awake. We got home at around 9pm (her normal bedtime is 10) and I kept her awake for a while longer, knowing she had just slept an hour. She went to sleep at 11:30pm. And then, 1am rolled around…..
And she started crying.
There was no consoling her, and she was just way too over-tired. She ended up staying awake and playing until 5am. I finished a book on my kindle while watching her run around like a crazy person, and spent between 4am-5am rocking/begging/cursing her to go to sleep.
You guys, I don’t think I’ve ever been so tired in my life as I’ve been this past week, because of her messed up sleep schedule.
I want to be social, and I know that these few weeks haven’t been an accurate depiction of the normal week, but honestly, all it’s done is motivate me to stay home and become a hermit with my well-rested daughter.
Am I alone in thinking that it’s just easier to stay at home? How did the holiday season go with your little one?
