Five Minute Friday (er Saturday): Tired


Being a Mommy seems to make one perpetually tired.  If it isn't a late night or an early morning, it is a long walk with a heavy toddler or a fussy baby.  

I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I do however, enjoy my coffee even more now that ever before.  Sleep, when it comes, is precious and deep.  Naps, the bane of my childhood existence, have become a long awaited excuse to cuddle with my babies.  

Sleep deprivation, and its resulting frustrations and irritations, is minor in relation to the joy of parenting.   

As I write, my tired babies snooze and I attempt to refocus and prepare for our evening together.  
Maybe tomorrow, I will nap with them, maybe tomorrow.

Will you join us next week on Friday (or Saturday)?


  1. Naps and coffee! Awwe yes! I lve the coffee to stay alert and awake the naps to snuggle by. Oh how I miss those days! Do enjoy!
    Thank you for coming by.

  2. I know how you feel, as I type I am holding my little one knowing that I should be taking in this moment for rest myself. :-) Very nice post. Keep it up!!
