The last week has been tough. Jasmine is going through a period of sleep regression. My normally very good sleeper is now refusing naps during the day, as well as waking up screaming every few hours during the night. As you can imagine (or, probably know from experience) this situation is no fun for anyone. Despite the lack of sleep, Jasmine still seems to have a boundless amount of energy. I, on the other hand, am knackered. Truly and utterly knackered.
I’m struggling to find the energy to do much at the moment. I have no motivation to do anything other than sit on the sofa and think about sleeping.
But isn’t it amazing, the effect a sunny day can have on your mood? Today we had an early breakfast and headed to Claire Castle Country Park. A family walk outdoors was just what I needed to boost my mood.
I reminded myself that this is just a phase. In fact, it’s all just a phase. And as much as I really do miss my sleep. One day, I will miss having this tiny, little girl – even more. And no matter how tired I am, I never want our time together to slip through my fingers.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
