Confessions of a Sleep Deprived Momma!

I have to admit, the one thing other than diet Wild Cherry Pepsi and chocolate that holds me together is sleep. Sleep, glorious sleep. The thrill of sleeping in on a Sunday (while daddy entertains the kiddos) or passing out at 7:00pm on a Friday and getting 12 solid hours. Yes, those moments are wonderful and few and far between; especially with an infant at home.

The following is a list of the confessions I must make of things I've done while sleep deprived. All have happened in the first months after baby and over the course of three infants... don't call CPS thinking they've all happened this week!!

10. Couldn't find the third kid's name in my brain when talking about her.
9. Let the toddler eat an entire box of cereal bars... too tired to get off of couch to get a meal!
8. Closed my eyelids on couch with an 18 month old playing in livingroom. Two pound toy hit me between the eyes. Slept with one eye open after that!
7. Buttons, there were just too many button to snap in the middle of the night so just tighten the swaddle!
6. Lost the almond butter on the kitchen counter for three days.
5. Wore the same nursing tank for one, two, three okay, maybe four days in a row!
4. Found the tator tots in the oven three days later... oven was off!
3. Left the house multiple times in just my slippers (but fully clothed)!
2. Got gas with car running and kids in carseats.
1. I booked the family tickets to Houston, Texas booking our return flight in the wrong MONTH.. oops!

Don't pretend like you don't have something to add to this list!
