RIP, Sleep! We had a good run, but ever since my son made his epic appearance into the world, I feel like sleep and I have gone through a messy divorce of some sorts.
And so my Ode to Sleep was created:
Will I ever sleep again?
Will I forever be watching Big Ben?
Tick tock away…
While I rock, sing, and sway.
He’s over one now,
He should be sleeping.
Instead he wakes frequently,
And out of bed I go leaping.
Night terrors create gigantic screams.
I hope my jumps don’t make me hit high beams.
Yes, I’ve tried white noise, black-out blinds, and even sleep training.
Maybe I am the one that I should be blaming?
I stick to a solid night-time routine!
I’m so jealous of those who sleep through the night, I’m green.
Maybe once he is two, he will be over these issues.
Until then, I will keep crying through tissues.
Wine, chocolate and complaining to my mom friends,
Will get me through until this lack of sleep ends!
