working mom?

So much for posting articles that somebody else wrote. I will continue to post those but I also have decided that documenting the life of a real life working mom is what this will be. Really, what I would like is for those moms (and dads) out there who work, to know that they are not alone. I have felt like I am the only person on the planet who feels the way that I do, but the more I talk (and I do that well) the more I realize that working moms (and stay at home working moms) are all extremely similar, we want the best for our kids and we also want to feel sane and appreciated at the same time, I don't think we are asking for the moon.

Okay, my 2 year old won't sleep. I shouldn't say won't sleep I should just say that staying asleep is the problem, consequently it is for me too! I really have no idea what the problem is. . .I honestly had no idea how sleep deprived a person could get until I had children. Not in college or in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would sleep as little as I do. Even when the child sleeps I don't sleep because I have to "check in" (ie make sure everybody is breathing, nobody is uncovered and getting cold, and of course reassuring myself that nobody has had an allergic reaction to a new food that we may have had for dinner and may be going into anaphalactic shock) The things that go through your head at 2:34 am!

Anyway, I am a mom, I love my children dearly and I guess if the price I pay for them is getting 5-6 hours of sleep a night so be it, I would happily pay it all over again!
