When I’m tired.

Nov

In every family there are niggles, little annoyances which may result in huffiness, in muttering under your breath, but from time to time, they get too much, and instead of just frustrating you, or even being endearing little flaws, they start to really piss you off.  

Today is one of those days.  I’m tired.  Just when I think we’re making progress with The Chunky Monkey he does a four wake-up overnighter.  For nothing other than wanting “a big kiss big cuddle”.  But Mr Aimee isn’t home yet, he’s at the gym, and by the time he’s home I just want my pizza and bottle of wine he’s bringing, so I thought I’d share with you guys.  Oh, and I’m too tired to type so apologies for the lazy picture post.

So, what about you, what makes you a bit “stabby” when you’re tired?

  1. Haha yes to all of these!! Mr C came down the other morning TWO hours after me and after a full nights sleep and started telling me about how tired he was!! x

  2. I could have written that (not as well of course) every photo, every point you made, every bloody situation. I call the dishwasher thing ‘Schrodinger’s dishwasher’. You don’t know if the contents is clean or dirty till you open it.

    I am raging after a few night of very little sleep so i would like to add the following points:
    1) being pointed out what a miserable cow I’m being (after 4 nights of no sleep even a nun would be pushed to violence)
    2) on the rare occasion the smalls sleep, been kept awake by snoring
    3) People telling me what sleep training methods I should or shouldn’t use. (That one makes me extra stabby especially if their kids sleep or have no kids at all)
    4) running out of places to hang my washing
    5) the house been destroyed within 30 mins after spending all day cleaning

    I have been sleep deprived for 5 years. I am a woman on the edge and I feel your pain.
