Mum In A Rut!



Since Penelope become ill her sleeping patterns at night have been all over the shop and I'm struggling to get back to normal too. She used to sleep the night through and I'd go to bed at a really decent time myself, I would always wake up around 8-8.30am to wake Penny up for the day. Lately, I've gotten myself in a right old mess...I now stay up most nights as late as 3am keeping myself busy because I know there's no point in going to bed as Penny normally will just wake up on and off until then. Therefore I'm up pretty much all night and for that reason I've started to struggle to wake up for the next day. I end up asleep till about 9.30-10am and Penny doesn't wake up either.

Our daily routine gets messed up and because she woke up later she goes to bed later now too not by a lot just a tad. It's completely turnt the boat over and I can't snap back into how thing were because it USED to really work for us and admittedly Penny has been sleeping for longer intervals the last few nights so I COULD salvage a few hours here and there, but after a few weeks of not sleeping I'm in the habit of staying up. Also because of the lack of sleep I'm getting I've noticed a vast change in my mood, ability throughout the day and my back pain has flared up a considerable amount.
I'm starting to struggle a little.

My diets not helping either... Oh the dreaded diet. I'm just not in the mood to bother to look after myself. I don't eat well I don't drink enough and I definitely don't care. And I should?! I think from tonight I'm going to force myself to get to bed early, and try to get back in the habit of giving a damn about me. Starting from today, but yes I already woke up late again and Penny is still asleep too but as I soon as I get up today I'm going to make myself buck up and sort it out! I cant carry on like this, this is so unlike me to behave this way. I don't normally write posts on how I'm doing or if I'm feeling abit over run but I need to just let my frustrations out!

Do you find yourself feeling worse for wear sometimes or is it just me?

  1. I know exactly how you feel, I seem to be in the same situation with Emily. She will nap fine during the day but will not have any of it during the night, I even tired cutting down her daytime naps which didn't work. I hope you get some sleep soon, and little Penny goes back to the routine you like. You need to take care of you too. x

  4. It is so easy to get stuck in a rut. I find that I'm awfully lazy unless I have activities planned for the day. I also go to bed far too late. Silly really? Good luck looking after yourself more. It sounds like you need and deserve some TLC. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

  5. I feel your pain! Luke is going through the 18 month sleep regression at the moment and it is driving us all insane. He's tired and frustrated but won't nap or sleep all the way through the night, he's also poorly at the moment which isn't helping. I try to get an early night but my boyfriend wants to stay up for ages watching TV or playing games. As for diet...my dinner was a plate full of cheesy mash and spaghetti hoops. *shameful*
