I feel like I'm forever moaning on here (probably because I am). Things are still rough...

Late nights (her - I'd happily go to bed at 7pm), teething (still), tantrums, too much energy (her)... I mean, there is only so much tiredness I can take before I drop down dead from sheer exhaustion (you can SO die from tiredness).

A rare moment of peace and quiet

You see, my little darling isn't a big fan of sleep. Or sitting still. She fights both and somehow, sucks all the energy I have (very little) out of me. A bit like when Ursula the sea witch sucks the voice from Ariel in The Little Mermaid. I don't feed her sugar, we keep the TV off, she runs around, we go out, she walks places AND STILL... she insists that 10pm is a reasonable hour for her to feel tired. WHY IS THIS?

I am so tired. Even more tired than I was during the first few weeks of becoming a Mum. Oh yeah, more tired than that. No amount of caffeine can wake me up. As soon as I have some new running shoes, I'm going to try and run this tiredness off (is that even possible? I'm desperate...) and if that doesn't work then maybe I can section myself just to get some rest. Ha, that wasn't even a joke.


  1. Wow, that sounds crazy! I hope you get some good usable advice. My boys sleep from 7:30 to 6ish so I can't offer any :( (4-yr old wakes a few times and ends up in our bed every night but at least he sleeps...)

  2. We had the same problem (only bedtime was more like somewhere between 10:30-11:30pm) until I completely cut out daytime naps. Now she gets a bath at 8pm and is asleep between 8:30-9pm usually. Still not as early as for many, but it feels like a massive difference to me after having no evening for myself before.
