Are you a tired mummy?

Tired mother

Looking back, I think the biggest surprise about being a new mother was how much lack of sleep affected me. It’s not surprising that depriving a person of sleep is a form of torture, because with a premature baby that didn’t sleep for oh, until she was about a year old, I was on the verge of killing someone (probably my poor husband).

I’m holding a competition for all you sleep deprived mums on my review site, so if you are a tired mummy, please read on…

    Sleep deprived, I am an awful awful person, an even worse mum and spend a ridiculous amount of time thinking up ways to make my husband’s life miserable so he can feel even a 1/100th of how I’m feeling. There is a reason it’s used as torture.
    On those rare days when they’ve both slept through the night, I’m back to being the super cheery person I was for 32 years and am in love with my gorgeous little darlings.
    I even consider taking them off eBay, or at least upping the price.
    Please get me onto the Pampers Golden Sleep Train now!!!

    GREAT great idea. Now that is genius, awarding a lucky mom with that prize. Who can’t use that lol? I know I can! Too bad I wasn’t in the UK though.

    What a great post. Sleep deprivation is a terrible thing, my middle child never slept for more than 3 hours in a 24 hour period until he was over 3 years old, and we never got the 3 hours in one go!! I had forgotten how bad it was until recently when again the kids ensured I had 5 weeks of interrupted sleep, due to my eldest keeping nocturnal hours and illness. I felt completely wiped out, so have been catching up while they were all away this week!
