5 Sleepy Rituals for Tired Parents by Awesomely Awake
It’s funny that I’m writing about sleep.
Because for a year and a half sleep has been hard for me.
I get to sleep fine and, if I’m lucky, I stay asleep for a good solid stretch of time and wake my normal, happy, rambunctious self.
There are other days when a child wakes me or a noise wakes me or my brain wakes me.
And then I find myself AWAKE in that awful way I don’t want to be: Mind buzzing. Worries floating. Fears rising.
The worst of this was when my husband was unemployed.
