Sleepy, sleepy!

Not even makeup can disguise my tiredness today!

The little pocket rocket is keeping me up! During the day = perfect, settled, text book baby. 1 certain baby “experts” might base their drivel on. So happy and full of life is she that the days are manageable because she brings so much joy.

But I’m tired! I still choose seeing my friends and getting out and about over resting because the company is so nice and helps the patience stay in tact where C is involved. I am however looking after ‘me’! The disposables are out the cupboard, the pantry is stocked with bought baby food and the husband is eating his fair share of toasted sandwiches!! As a result, in high demand times I am the perfect storyteller, doctors assistant, shopping assistant, dolly mumma, song singer, dancer and story teller – in quieter times I am motionless on the couch as the toddler flits and floats around in her wonderful, happy little world and the baby races around hunting the home for mischief!

I’m not sure if that made any sense but as I said, I’m tired and a vent felt like the right thing to do after waking my brain up at a personal training session without remembering to wake the rest of my body up with it!

What do you do to help ‘you’ when you’re exhausted?

*a preview of photos shows they are blurry – I’m going to claim it’s an artistic way of showing you all how my world looks through my tired eyes!!!!!!

  1. I sneak out of bed every morning to get some alone-time with my cup of coffee and computer. That hour gives me just what I need to get through the day.

  2. Have you tried locking yourself in the bathroom – scream and cry, them emerge a perfect, patient and energetic mom. I totally understand that kind of day – and then tomorrow begins before your head get settled on the pillow.

      Haha! Yes I have – the toddler can open the lock-less bathroom door! Yesterday I snuck off whilst she was sleeping for a shower and the bub played on the bathroom floor whilst I showered. No peace tho- baby kept bashing her head on the shower door trying to get the mysterious baby she could see and then the dogs started barking because a tutoring client showed up at my door unexpectedly!! I ended up at my front door, wrapped in a towel, apologizing for forgetting and completely un-equipped for an hour of teaching!!!!

      We had a better night last night so I was able to feel slightly human today!!! Thanks for your comment 🙂

    Just to let you know, I accidentally unfollowed you yesterday while I was updating my list so I had to “follow” again (if you happened to see that I started…yes, I already was before. 😉 )
