After dropping the boys off at school this morning, I basically came home and fell asleep with Lizze, only waking up 20 minutes before they needed picked up.
My phone locked up so the alarm never went off.
I have alarms set to go off throughout the day because I’m so exhausted anymore that I have been falling asleep more often than normal, during the day.
There was so much that I wanted to accomplish today and so far I’ve accomplished nothing. 🙁
Having said that, I clearly needed the sleep or I probably wouldn’t have fallen asleep like that. I’m going to try not to feel guilty about this because it’s okay to take care of me on occasion. 🙂
I hope that at least some of you manage to find the time to take care of yourself, at least on occasion. 🙂

Dang it! Do not feel guilty! We constantly beat ourselves up so bad…..your body needs slerp and will shut down on you or make you sick
I think an underestimated part of parenting is looking after yourself. You clearly needed the sleep,so I’d suggest no need to feel guilty!
DONT FEEL GUILTY. I THINK YOU NEED TO DO THIS FOR AT LEAST A WEEK. I AM NOT IN CHARGE OF YOU BUT I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU TO DO THIS FOR MONTHS. All caps on purpose. i am glad you got sleep get some more
I know that Walmart has a foam memory topper that you guys could get to help it be more comfortable in the interim. I think it’s going to be $28.88.
Brianne Knight I fell asleep next Lizze in bed. 🙂
Kathy Brower honestly, the biggest problem is our mattress. We have a one died mattress, meaning you’re not supposed to flip it over. The pillow top had to be removed and we ended up having to flip the mattress over and sleep on the flat, unpadded bottom. Replacing that is a priority when we get the money. That’s a large reason I’m so tired. That and running my self ragged.
I hope you slept somewhere more comfy than a chair! Lol
Have you visited your PCP lately? Maybe there’s something else going on? It’s easy to forget yourself when there are little kids to worry about, but little problems get big quickly.
