Sleep precious sleep

Oh my long-lost friend how I do miss you! 

Sleep is without a doubt the number one thing I miss most about my life prior to children. I always assumed that sleep deprivation was something that only occurred in those early newborn days….boy was I wrong.

I now know that even as toddlers not many of them subscribe to our ideal image of sleeping through the night. Whether it’s tears at bedtime, waking in the night, nightmares or needing the toilet, sleep continues to elusive.

I have no idea what is around the corner for my children’s sleep habits. Best I don’t know and just live in the hope that one day I will be able to hang out again with my friend sleep.
