Your Moment Is Now

I'm not sure how you came across this post, maybe you subscribe, maybe you saw it on social media, maybe you found it in a Google search. (If you found it by googling shoot me an email I'm really curious how you found me. :) 

But regardless of how you wound up here-you are here. And I would like to take this moment to encourage you to take a moment to breathe.

I find that sometimes life gets so hectic and so rushed and so hurried that I literally forget to just stop and take a moment to breathe.

 Your moment is now.

What's Up With the Sleep Issues

The flu really did a number on us when it comes to sleeping (or lack therof). This week has been DIFFICULT and that's putting it mildly.

Yesterday resulted in a 2 hour battle where in the end, I basically gave up. Today started off about the same. He didn't want me to leave the room. Each time I went to check on him or see what was wrong, the screams escalated. Finally, I kissed him, put him back into bed (for the thousandth time it felt like), and walked out. There was screaming and he trashed his room (again), but he finally fell asleep on a stack of huggies.

Whew that was rough.. During these nap refusals, his eyes are so heavy he can barely hold them open. Anyway, today he's napping. I hear him moving already, so I imagine nap will be 'short' today. But I'll take a short nap over screaming.

He was up twice last night too. Sigh... it was SOOOOOO much easier when he was still in the crib.


  1. Oh poor you and baby. Sickness does a rela number on sleep hang in there

    1. Yeah, it's been rough! Thankfully he slept last night. Today's nap was very short, but hopefully we are making progress!

  2. The sleep deprivation is one of the hardest parts of motherhood, especially when they are sick. There were a couple of years when I felt I had no sleep at all. Thankfully, they do eventually embrace sleep (especially after they get to school, they become tired from all the learning and activities).
