After the last couple of nights with little sleep, I sit here wide awake with my much-needed JUG of coffee. You see, recently my sweet little angel child (1) decided that it is the funniest thing to wake the entire household around 4:30… every morning! What to do? It is at times like these that I need to find my own little sacred space and transport myself to a place of sweetly perfumed memories of uninterrupted sleep.
So here goes; “An Ode To Sleep!”
Hello sleep, my old friend
I’ve come to dream of you again
Because a vision so encompassing
Makes me wonder where on earth I’ve been
And the thoughts of you within my mind still remain
Oh still remain within the hopes for silence
Goodness gracious don’t you know
Oh sleep my friend you cannot go
Oh for the hope of silence
Visit every now and then to show me
Let me believe you
If you promise there will be an end to these sleepless nights
And all these cries
Whisper……..I will again, have silence
Adapted to the song “Sounds Of Silence” – Simon and Garfunkel
Brilliant, I miss sleep too! x
One day we will enjoy it again! X Holding thumbs ?
This is fab!! My boy is an early riser, (more half 5 though!), & it becomes a mission to whisk him downstairs before he can wake everyone else. I’m shattered!! ?
Oh I agree! I do that on a daily basis, silently creeping past the bedroom doors hoping baby doesn’t shout MORNING EVERYONE!!!! :)
[…] clue what I am doing. What should I do? Maybe I am putting him down too early? My other kids go to sleep at 7 pm? Maybe being in my bed from 10 pm to morning isn’t that bad? Is it? Sleep deprivation […]
