We never get enough of it. But we can’t function without it. We wonder when our children will start doing it more effectively. But what’s the point in asking for the impossible?
In the meantime, we try and get it – any time, any where and in any way we can.
The twinlets have decided that if they can’t get any of it, none of us can.
The relentless round the clock crying and wailing for no good reason are sending Mr Surfer and I around the merciless twist of insanity.
One twin seems to always make his way into our bed, tucking himself up on top of my arm. The other night I was sprawled out like an overworked starfish with a twinlet under each.
My usually even keel husband has nothing left in his sleep tank. Running on fumes he’s dropping the F-Bomb each time he has to cart a twinlet back to his own bed.
Then, there’s the ultimate slap across the face when people ask us why the twinlets haven’t been sleeping.
Do ya think life would be in such disarray if we knew???
It’s like people forget about the mysterious disconnect between children and sleep.
While doing some research for a business project, I somehow stumbled onto this YouTube clip.
And while it’s completely irrelevant to the information I was actually after, it was exactly what I needed to watch.
Let me be a sloth.
Just for today. Just for this whole duration we call parenting.
Who wants to be a sloth with me?
