Y’all, the sleep deprivation struggle is real. I read somewhere that it’s the equivalent of walking around drunk. All day. Everyday. The last couple of weeks have definitely been lacking in the recommended hours of zzz’s with what may be teething or the 4 month sleep regression. The other night, however, my sweet angel slept for 11 glorious hours so that’s given me enough fuel to get back to blogging and make a list of the silly things that sleep deprivation made me do so I can look back and laugh at myself and try not to take this phase of life too seriously…
- Sleep deprivation made me say “y’all” at the beginning of this post… there is no other explanation.
- Hubs was kind enough to make me some tea after Eli had gone down for a nap. I was gone for 5 minutes and came back to ice cold tea because he had never actually boiled the water. Sleep deprivation is not just for the mamas!
- I decided that it was time to work on getting Eli to take his naps in the crib instead of in the mamaroo swing. Sooo, naturally, I placed the mamaroo in the crib. Thankfully, my sanity returned and I realized I would probably lose my parenting license if I placed him in that highly unsafe contraption. I quickly aborted the mission to transition to the crib.
- The cat was walking across the kitchen counter so I grabbed a spray bottle to spray her… butttt sprayed myself in the eye instead. Hubs almost died of laughter.
- I made chili in the crockpot (feeling like a sleep-deprived super mom, while doing so) and accidentally used 4 tsp of cayenne pepper instead of a 1/4 tsp. My mouth is burning just thinking about it.
- While on the topic of killing it in the kitchen… I put all the lids on the wrong things, things in the fridge that should be in the cupboard, things in the cupboard that should be in the fridge, and I forget what I am doing about 5000 times every time I try to cook.
- I went to exercise class with two different shoes on my feet. (My mom’s story. She’s a crazy warrior woman who is way more hardcore than me because she actually went to an exercise class).
- I had a conversation with a friend and just stared at her face, literally not comprehending a single word that was being said.
- Even after a long night of no sleep, I wake up to that little smiling face and my heart could literally explode with love. So, I must be totally insane.
Do you have any sleep deprivation moments you’d like to add? I’d love to hear them!
