Get Enough Sleep

The past few nights, I've gotten pretty much no sleep. This makes for a very non happy mama. I just can't function on 4 hours of sleep anymore. Maybe I'm getting old.

Not maybe. Yes, I'm getting old.

And now, the old lady is going to bed at 9 p.m. Fingers crossed for actual sleep tonight! (A.k.a. no croupy coughing fits for Flanna!)

How much sleep per night do you usually get? Do you notice the effect sleep has on your mood and general happiness level?

By the way, this photo is a rare specimen of my child actually sleeping. I couldn't believe we actually had pics of her asleep, because she was so hard to get to sleep that I was very protective of that time and generally wouldn't dare to even have a click of a camera in case it might wake her up! :)


  1. Huge effect...I need more sleep but after dinner, bath, and bedtime routines, I still have to clean and get ready for the next day...Even six hours is not enough for me! I feel so old some days!

  2. I know what you mean! It's 10, and I still need to do the dishes before bed. Or maybe I can let them wait til morning? I mean, sleep IS really important! :)
