Midnight Mommy Tip #10

Forget what the professionals say… If the only way she’s going to sleep is flopped out on your pillow on top of your head, LET HER. Trust me, that’s the only way ANYONE is going to get any sleep!

Midnight Mommy Tip #9

Ever have one of those nights when the baby wakes you up for a feeding and you’re so foggy tired, thinking “I don’t know how long I can keep going like this,” only to discover its not the middle of the night, it’s only 9 pm? Yeh, I got nothing. No tips here. Just pray to God that it doesn’t happen two days in a row… Or more!

Runners Be Like…

Truth: I actually said this as I was pulling on my running tights today. And as I was grabbing my shoes, I said, “well, there’s your answer right there!”

Yes, I talk to myself. And even answer myself sometimes. It’s ok to admit it. It’s not like runners like us were ever normal to start with. 😉

You know when the Sandman comes to visit and Baby girl breaks out the nun-chuks to fight him off? Yeh, just throw a blanket over her head. She’ll go out like a light. And next time, don’t wait till Midnight!

Midnight Mommy Tip #7:

Midnight Mommy Tip #6:

Those adorable pajamas lose their cuteness when your half asleep, struggling to snap those darn things back up on a wide-awake, kicking baby. Skip the snaps – stick with a long-sleeve t-shirt under a sleep sack!

Midnight Mommy Tip #5

You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can’t pick your friend’s nose.

You CAN, however, pick your baby’s nose. Just don’t try doing it in the middle of the night. Trust me. Those boogies can wait for morning. You can thank me later – after you’ve had some sleep.

Midnight Mommy Tip #4:

Save your toes from getting stubbed – leave the Christmas lights up year-round. The ambient light makes for a perfect night-light, especially if you drape a random curtain over them. Nevermind there’s no window there… Pay no attention to what’s not behind the curtain!
