Mr. Sandman, did you forget me?

Dear Mr. Sandman,

We have had an off and on relationship for many years now, but lately I thought we had been getting along fairly well. You would visit, I would fall asleep...in fact, sometimes I slept more than others in our house. But last night, I think you forgot about me!

I went to bed with thoughts of kids and school and lunchboxes on my mind...depending on you to spread that magic dust that takes me to dreamland. But instead, I got...well, nada!! I tossed, I turned, moved my pillow here and there...one leg in, one leg out...was I too hot? was I too cold? But whatever I tried, I could not find you to help me sleep!

And don't believe the story my hubby tells of me actually falling asleep...snoring, none the less! He even says I kicked him!! Well, that just doesn't sound like me at all!

I really hope that you can fit me in your schedule tonight. A busy mom like me doesn't do very well without sleep...at least 6 hours, ok? That's not too much to ask, is it?

Seriously, I don't have to make a visit to your frenemy....sleeping pills! Because those NEVER let me down!!

  1. Ugh, I hear you when it comes to sleep. It is beyond frustrating when you don't sleep well. This is a constant struggle for me as well. How did it happen? I used to sleep soooo well. Sigh, here's to a good night's sleep for both of us :)

  2. So true, Danna! I guess as mom's we are just used to sleeping light so we can hear the baby, or toddler, or whoever. But I've always wondered how dad's have no trouble sleeping through crying...O__o
