What Happens When Moms Don't Get Enough Sleep

Have you ever had one of those moments where you stop, realize what you're doing, and think "I need to get more sleep"? I did, yesterday. Someone's baby (i.e. mine) didn't feel like sleeping much the night before, so I was a tired mama. I was washing my dishes while Nicholas was (finally) taking a nap and I had the baby monitor on so that I could hear him. While washing my food processor, I wanted to hear if Nicholas was waking up. So what did I do? Instead of reaching to the counter next to me and grabbing the baby monitor like a normal person, I put the food processor up to my ear for a minute and tried to listen for Nicholas. It took about 30 seconds for me to realize what I was doing. I kind of wished someone else was there to experience the sleep-deprived induced stupidity that I had just displayed. At least I'm not as bad as my dad, who a few weeks ago put his phone in a drawer in the refrigerator and couldn't find it for a few days.

Here's hoping you got enough sleep last night and that your day is as bright as this little guy's smile!
