i need a sleepcation


you guys, it’s true what they say

you know, that once you become a mom you will never sleep like you used to

i feel like i haven’t gotten a really good night sleep since i got pregnant with Lily (hello 2009)

due to needing a new mattress but haven’t gotten around to buying a new one, i wake up aching and not rested

due to Lily waking sometimes in the middle of the night, i sometimes can’t get right back to sleep

due to my own thoughts about maybe not doing enough as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, human, i sometimes can’t get to sleep

i want to lock myself up in a hotel room and take a sleeping pill (or two) and just sleep for days

i want to feel rested again

i want to feel light and not heavy

i want to dream again….
