Sleep is for the weak.
The truth of the matter is that sleep, at this juncture in our lives, is elusive.
First we had Lila. Sleep? A non-issue. We got.so.much.sleep. (Comparatively.)
Then 10 months later, I found out I was pregnant again.
Then Vivienne was born.
Then we potty-trained Lila.
Then there was teething.
And various colds.
And more colds.
And ear infections.
And growth spurts.
Somewhere in there the sleep has stopped.
One always has an issue. One wakes up the other one. Kids are fickle. Sound machines are no match for the lungs of my girls.
I’ll tell you what, we’re tired.
