Do you ever

Do you ever

Do you ever not sleep?

Remember back when you were a kid, and you could stay up all night because you were with your friends or talking on the phone?

Or maybe when you got older and you were with friends or someone special?

You could recover easy enough right? Yeah school might be rough, or you need an extra cup of coffee on your way to work, but no big deal.

Then you have a kid..or two..and sleep is just a lost art. It’s not like you’d trade them for anything in the world..they’re yours, top to bottom, but still..

Now that we’re “older”, married, having kids, worried about bills, retirement, the world in general…sleep doesn’t come as easy as it used to. Even when I know if I go to sleep right NOW, I can get almost 4 hours. Maybe. But my brain doesn’t play fair. It says I have all these ideas and we need to work through them right now! No, you’ll forget them come morning so it has to be now.

Maybe I can become like a cat and just nap on and off through the day, in between preschool lessons, Caillou, and meals. Wonder if the kid would leave me alone play quietly during those..

Oh look, we’re down to 3.5 hours before the alarm. Great (she says sarcastically)
