I try and try and TRY to get my kids to sleep (it’s not so much my son right now but the baby), and I don’t even care if they don’t sleep all night, I just want them to sleep enough so that their parents can get enough sleep so we can at least not feel like crap all the time!
I was thinking about this and wondering exactly what it is about this sleep crap that makes me so stressed, and I decided it’s because I FAIL ALL THE TIME. I try SO hard to get her to sleep, day and night, and I FAIL EVERY SINGLE DAY, MANY TIMES A DAY, I fail so much and the only thing that has ever come close has been sports… I’ve always sucked at them no matter how hard I tried, I always failed at that miserably… well this just takes the cake. It just never gets better. My son is better now but he’s going on 3 years old and I don’t know if I can take it that many more years…
It’s not like I failed an exam or I failed to finish college, or I failed to get the job I wanted, this is many failures all day long. ALL DAY!
I’m off to go cry now and feel sorry for myself.
