  • on empty is a good day
    some days I am in an energy debt

    almost two weeks ago our toddler escaped her cage that we used to call her crib
    and my life is not quite the same, brings me back to the early days when she was infant and thoughts of her not sleeping through the night and naps, well these are a battle now, but i am not willing to except the possibility that naps are a thing of the past. my sister said hers did not nap after they escaped from crib and went into big bed, no way, i need that time

  • I am right there too. I work full time and have a teething 4 1/2 month old.

    SO helps, but he works manual labor so at night he is OUT COLD.

    I have been lucky though, my mom has offered to take the baby a couple nights here and there.
    But even with that, I am usually WIPED.

  • I am actually not on empty today. My fiance go up with Sopheeah last night. I really appreciate him. But normally I feel like I'm on empty. I sit down with a nice big glass of water and play with my little girl. Nothing feels better to me then spending time with Sopheeah and my family.

  • I have a 2 year old and a 8 month old. In addition to that I do in home daycare. I have 4 extra kids all day. I feel always drained. Some days I don't know how I get out of bed! I recently just joined the gym to try and lose some weight and maybe get some more energy. So far the gym has helped but now I can't sleep at night. My girls aren't the best sleepers either. My husband works nights 3 days a week and it is hard by myself.

  • Just gotta keep on what you gotta do, when you gotta do it.....after accomplishing daily tasks......nourish the time for relaxing-imtamacy-sleep.
