When things get all psychotic

There are those days when you think you can hardly make it through the day. You feel you’ve done a full days work by 7am. I think the only way to get through these kinds of days is not to do it alone. Call anyone who is not at work. Descend upon them. Go to their house, meet them in a park, have coffee and cake with them, or lunch. Go to a mum’s group. Baby yoga. Make friends with a random person on the street (well, depends on where you live I guess). Whatever it takes. Just get yourself as far away from your bed as possible. That bed is like a tease when you can’t get into it. And even if you do finally get your little person to sleep for a nap and you finally descend into your bed for some well earned blissful slumber, inevitably they will finish their nap just as you start to drift into that sweet sweet place …

    I’m having one of those days today and dealing with it by eating lots of cake.

    Cake is one of the SIFTW officially approved ways of making it through yet another sleep deprivation day. As is chocolate. Double points if it’s chocolate cake you’re eating.

    Amberjee couldn’t agree more. I luckily had my best friend who wasn’t working when ds was small and both mum m.i.l very close so did exactly as you discribe. Nothing like tea and buns and putting the world to rights to take your mind off being tired.
