    Oh yes. I remember the sleep-deprived years when my kids were young. My older daughter slept through the night from about 4 months. Awesome right? Until I went back to work when she was 8 months old and she started waking up in the night again. I think she missed seeing me during the day and wanted to play.

    The one piece of advice I’d give is to remind yourself it’s only temporary. I know it’s hard when you’re in the moment but they do grow up too fast. When they get to be teenagers, you lose sleep over a lot of different things.

      Oh wow such a tease! You’re probably right though, they don’t seem to sleep very well when there’s change. Mine is finally sleeping but I’ve managed my expectations for it to go left again at any time 😅

    Wow, this sounds like a big challenge. Lack of sleep is a killer and we cannot reall blame anyone for being a monster. Your post just makes me think of how cool parents are – the things they do for children!

        Haha. Thank you. There was a time in my life where I was difficult to love so I understand what that is like. I would like to be the person to understand that under pain, anger, or whatever it is, we are all just afraid or hurting or insecure and it could be nice if someone tells us that is okay and we will overcome and find our true selves again.
