So Fucking Tired

It’s quite simple really,
If we don’t sleep, we turn into arseholes.

So unless your life mission was to marry an arsehole, I suggest we evenly distribute the sleep deprivation.

Yes, only one of us has to go to work, but pease explain to me how you have determined that your work requires more of a well rested head then our job?

Because as an at home queen, We only have to constantly make life risking decisions. Decisions that only effect your child’s health and safety, decisions like whether or not it’s safe to cross the road, or if your son is old enough to swim without a floaty. Just small decisions like that.

The decision of whether or not to fall asleep on the couch while breastfeeding, seems like a simple ‘no’ right? not so simple when your eyelids require the strength of ten men to hold them up.
Thank god for our strength.

Where are we supposed to find the clarity to make these decisions if we are delegating the queens all of the sleep deprivation?

Because there is no boss at our house to fire us if we fall asleep at the wheel, or on top of our babies.
There are no official warnings if we make the wrong choice to turn our backs for a second while the kids are in the bath.

Only the consequences are so much more dire then simply being fired.

So please, respect our need to sleep, we want to face our days with strength and confidence and we want you to feel confident in us, watching over our precious family.

We are so lovely, so please stop making us be arseholes. And give us some fucking sleep.

    Hell yes! I run a business and look after a very active special needs toddler – I need my fucking sleep! Currently, I get to go to bed whenever I like on a Friday night, and maybe a Saturday now and then too. The rest of the time, I don’t sleep until 2-3am because I can’t get anything done when my daughter is awake, so housework, business work I haven’t done during the day, getting her and my bag packed if we’re going somewhere the next day, showering – all has to be done after she goes to bed – which could be 8pm, or it could be 11pm. She may wake again, too, which makes it longer. Thankfully, when Friday night rolls around, I am out like a light, and hubby has to step in, and he doesn’t mind so much, although he always bitches.
    Please, beloved hubby, swap with me for a week, I’ll go to work in an office all day and you can run around trying to keep her from climbing on the coffee table or toppling the tv or falling off various surfaces. You can deal with the disaster zone that our home becomes and try and tidy up ten times a day and fight with the dishwasher and washing machine when they play up. You can drag her to her (and your) appointments and worry that you aren’t doing enough for her development, and try and run a business at the same time – try putting invoices in while she screeches at you because you’re on the other side of the room! I’ll go and work solidly without constant interruption, talk to other adults, and when I come home I’ll happily play computer games and snack before dinner. The end of the week, you’ll have so much more respect for me!
