Just Tired

Knit a little more.

Read a little more.

Make another cup of tea.

Put another load of laundry through.

Serve cereal for snack.

Pick up a selection of sequin stars off the floor.

Wipe a small dirty face.

Remove a wooden hedgehog from my (cold) cup of tea.

Pair up a bag full of socks.

Knit a few more rows.

I'm running on empty a little today. And wondering when baby beloved will drop the new 3am shenanigans in favour of gifting mama with enough sleep. And grateful, always grateful, for this life. Even on empty.

  1. Oh wow! I could have written this (except my baby is now 4 and insisting on getting up around 430)
    : ( hang in there - Sure 'things can only get better'. I too keep counting over my blessings xx

    1. I try to remind myself that all too soon they are living grown-up independent lives and I will miss how very much they need me now. (hugs)

  2. Mmm. Not sure about the 3am thing! Maybe a change of scenery will help. Four more sleeps!x

    1. That's one of the things keeping me going - even if it doesn't exhaust her enough to sleep, there's no point in doing anything to persuade her to sleep just before I disrupt her routine! ;) She is quiet at 3am, at least - just perky and thirsty!

    2. Lol, if only I could satisfy her needs at that time of day. Come next week, I will be so able to join her wide awakeness at 3am! Hopefully being busy, and a change of place will send her in the sleeping direction, not the even more awake/now loud direction! ;)

  3. Oh dear, dear Sarah, I remember those days and nights so well. I still see 3am now and again when one of my grown up children 'need' to talk or if my legs decide to do the 'aching like heck thing'. Thinking of you lovely mama xx

  4. Hugs lovely...always an inspiration even when you're so so so so tired x x It may also be the moon phase making today feel that little bit more tired, I'm just about to write a similar post and I'm not waking up at 3am (at the moment anyway!). x x

    1. I think we're all just a little under the weather, but I am feeling better today. And it's hard to begrudge the loss of sleep to that little smiling happy face appearing in the night time to fling her arms around my neck. <3
