Every parent looks forward to the day when their child finally “sleeps through the night”. To get 6-8 solid hours of sleep again is something that most new parents, while they may enjoy the stages of having a newborn, talk and think about constantly.
I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t exist.
When you have children, sleeping through the night is a fairy tale.
A BIG FAT DREAM.
My kids are almost 7 and almost 3 and I barely go 2 days in a row with a solid nights sleep.
It’s always something.
Someone has an itch.
Someone has to pee (and my daughter is not old enough to be given the run of the house alone at night).
Someone had a nightmare.
Someone throws up in their bed.
Someone throws up on the way to the bathroom.
Someone needs a tissue.
It goes on and on and on….
No wonder I’m so cranky!
