I miss sleep so bad

Over the last week bub's been teething and has a slight cold so there hasn't been much sleep going on around here. And my god do I miss it. Right now I don't even care whether she has a day sleep or not which she's been skipping every second day {ok that's a lie it'd be awesome if she was still having day sleeps, but at the moment I'll take what I can get}. I just wish she'd remember how to sleep at night, 6 days of less than 3hrs sleep has made me feel like I've been thrust back into the first few weeks of new motherhood. And I really don't need reminding of what that was like. It was hard enough the first time. Dear god I hope she gets over this bug and remembers how to sleep some time soon.

I mean look how peaceful she looks when she's asleep. I miss that baby! {I mean toddler}


I miss her little face looking so relaxed and content. I miss staring at her beautiful face while she sleeps.

I miss her sleeping in her own cot {instead of rolling all over me and smacking me in the face with her arm all night}.

I miss sleeping long enough at night to have an actual dream.

I miss my sanity which I can feel slowly slipping away more and more each day {yep that's overly dramatic, but seriously you live on minimal broken sleep for a week and see how you feel}.

I can't wait for these dam teeth to come through and her cold to pass. Part of me loves the extra snuggles and sleeping beside her at night, but it'd be great if sleeping beside her actually entailed a lot more sleeping than it currently does.

Ironically when she does go back to sleeping properly again I'll miss her while she's asleep, but I'll love it at the same time.

  2. Sleep deprivation is hard. I hope you get some sleep soon. I'm the same with my girls, love when they're awake but also love when they're asleep. X

  3. Oh sleep.....I never knew how much it would mean to me when I became a mother. Such a basic requirement, but worth its weight in gold to a parent! Just remember - this too shall pass!

    1. I know right, I so undervalued it before I became a mum.

  4. Sleep deprivation is the best form of torture for mums, seriously! And when you're in it, you can't always see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope she starts feeling better soon #weekendrewind
