Coffee... You Can Sleep When You're Dead!

Dealing with a toddler is hard enough… dealing with a sleepy, grumpy, child early in the morning when you’re stressing to get to work is another. Single mommy solution: Dress the little tike the night before. He gets to sleep in, and you get to peacefully get ready for work. Problem solved! Now please keep in mind every once in awhile this plan backfires. Loud cries may awaken you in the middle of the night. Your toddler just wet the bed. Did I mention he or she is sleeping with you in your bed, and there is no hubby around to man up and take care of things so that you can get your beauty sleep! It’s time to put on your big girl bra, and take care of business. Half asleep somewhat zombie like you take off your child’s wet clothes, and change the sheets. If you’re LUCKY your little one will fall back asleep, and if you’re luckier it will be on the floor unable to hog your space. After such a night I feel like the mama in this advertisement. Although the quote should read, “KIDS… You can sleep when you’re dead!”

    You made me laugh. Life with children is nuts and if you’re not careful they will make you nuts, unless of course you can laugh at yourself and them.

  4. Mine are grown now, but, I remember the days of single motherhood and wet beds, etc, etc, etc. It does end some day. Good Luck!
