Being tired is now a way of life

Every time I see or bump into somebody and they ask how I am, my initial response was to say “TIRED”.  I truly believe that the hardest thing about parenthood at this stage of my life is the sleep deprivation.  It’s not the lack of sleep but the broken sleep that affects me most.  I don’t know about you but if I don’t have a enough sleep then I am one cranky person with a short fuse.  With two girls under two and fourteen months apart, my world has been flipped upside down.  What I have come to realise is that every parent is tired.  So I have made a sub-conscious effort to stop saying those words and am training my mind to accept that this is now a way of life.  I know that it’s not forever and that there is light at the end of the tunnel.  So for now, when I see or bump into someone I have stopped saying that I am TIRED and now I tell them I’m BUSY, which is a whole new article…..
