I Heart Me Monday #3

What Mummy/Parenting behaviour ignores your me, making you want to laugh, scream or cry?

Ooh, now this one was a bit of a toughy for me to be honest!

What mummy behaviour makes me want to scream or cry.

I guess the worst one for me is the, now only once or week if I’m lucky, times when I need to get up in the night to hush a crying Max.

It’s usually when I’ve *just* fallen asleep for a start, and often he’s just wanting to play or cuddle. That’s nice n all, but couldn’t you leave it till the morning honey?

I’m not as happy a person when I haven’t slept properly (you can imagine what I was like before Max finally started sleeping through most nights… cue me jinxing it and now having to get up at least 3/4 times tonight! LOL), god forbid I have a broken night’s sleep!

I can’t function well the next day at all.

I am grumpy, snappy, and oh so lethargic, I just can’t be bothered with anything!

So yeah, the one major anti-me parenting behaviour is definitely the sleepless nights!

What about yours? Go on over to Notes’ post and see what others have down as their most-hated parenting behaviour!

    Oh, I am soooo with you on this one – I am just awful when I have had a disturbed night. Strangely it is worse if I get interrupted now that the children sleep through consistently – it’s almost like my body got slightly used to it when they were very small!

    YES!! I *so* get what you mean! It was “normal” back when they were little, now it’s just hell on earth! So glad I’m past the baby stage now… I’m never doing that again! LOL

    I am loving these insights into you. Thank you.

    Oh, and I’m completely with you on this one. Disturbed sleep isn’t going to help anyone in thIs house!
