What Time Do You Go To Bed?
Being a parent is hard (note i could've said mom but I don't want to leave dads out). I find that it can be especially hard for those who love sleep, like me. I remember as a kid thinking that my parents were so lame because they went to bed so early. Well guess what... I too am now lame!
Most nights I find myself going to bed between 8pm-9pm (mostly closer to 8pm).Especially, if there had been nights of comforting a sick baby. And babies get sick a lot! I find as I age I am unable to function at my optimal level on interrupted sleep. I also find it takes me longer to recuperate and catch up om much needed sleep. Hence, the early bed time.
I am lucky to have a partner who will share and take turns with me doing night duty or sleeping in on the weekends.
Mom and Dad, I'm sorry i thought you were lame. I now see it was because of us kids.
I feel no shame for going to bed early and missing out on "Adult Life." I love my Mom Life and I love being there for my children well rested and able to give all the attentiveness they deserve. If that makes me lame so be it.
