Hey guys! It’s Friday! A day where you wake up and your like, “Yes! It’s an awesome day, the birds are singing, the weekends coming, dance dance!” But not really….I woke up at 2:30 AM to the sounds of a sleep regressing 15 month old howling like a banshee. I recommend getting that as an alarm, if you want your hair to turn gray and your sanity to slowly leave you.
So I get up, head in his room to see what’s going on…which was a whole lot of nothing, but crying and wanting to be held. I pick him up and rock him until he falls back asleep. Ahhhhh peace at last….. but not for long people. Not an hour later he is at it again.
Ok, so we are up for good now. I love starting my days off at 3:30 in the morning! Not really.
I remember my first son going through his sleep regression periods, but it must have slipped my mind how exhausting these times are. It is definitely a trying time, disturbing my patience, sleep, and overall daily function. I have to literally say to my self out loud, “I’m going to get through this, we can do it, Lord please give me strength.” ….. and then I cry for a few minutes and I feel a little better. Haha!
Thankfully this stage doesn’t last long and it will be back to peaceful sleep in no time. Don’t worry, I promise it gets better!
After this eventful morning, I was driving to work and what do I see……. a rainbow during my commute at 6:30 in the morning. I don’t know if I have ever seen a rainbow that early in the morning. It was a great reminder to keep going….even through the craziness and the crying and the tantrums and the sleepless nights. In the end there will be peace and serenity.
Funny thing about being a mom is, you discover strengths you didn’t even know you had.
