For any mom I think sleep somehow always manages to elude them and they never seem to get as much as they need. Even as a child I’ve been a tired person. I’ve been tested for mononucleosis and chronic fatigue syndrome but an official diagnosis has never stuck. I just feel tired and like to sleep.
Two kids under the age of 4. A husband that works long hours. This adds up to one tired mom staying busy and moving nonstop all day, every day.
My daughters both rely on me, so it’s imperative I make sure I do what I can to find the energy to start each day and refuel as needed throughout as needed.
Before giving birth to my second daughter, my tool to refueling each day was a steady stream of caffeine. Now that I’m nursing I try to limit my caffeine intake to a cup in the morning and an occasional cup as an afternoon pick me up.
Another way I make sure to avoid an afternoon slump is to keep moving. Whether I’m running errands, exercising, or chasing my girls around the house constant motion doesn’t allow me to dwell on my exhaustion.
Finally, knowing that my daughter’s will only be little for such a short time is enough to ensure I stay awake and moving and enjoy every minute I can!
