Suffering From Stress-Induced Insomnia? Here’s How To Beat It

Do you struggle to enter LaLa land no matter how tired you are at night? Thanks to WAHM job hours, money craziness, hectic parental schedules, and the pressure to run errands, the typical mom is tenser than ever, which means she may be getting less sleep than her body requires. It is simple on paper: you are tired after long hours of work and it’s time to sleep, so you start counting sheep within minutes of putting head to pillow. But stress causes things to go haywire, and the exact opposite happens. Even a little anxiety can tense your muscles, prompt […]

Having a Sensitive Child and Being a Sensitive Adult

Dinner was done Pajamas were on. Books were read. Boys were tucked in and Jenny the pug was placed on Aj’s bed. All was completed as normal. K-man was fast asleep. Then it happened… Aj started having his issues that he has every so often, since he has been off of medication these occurrences are few and far between, but they still happen. Aj is a unique child with a bit of bipolar, anxiety, autistic spectrum symptoms and more all mixed into this compassionate, loving 7 year old boy. I am not sure what is the cause of my son […]

Just When I’m At That Point

All day long my sons are pretty well maintained, easy going, happy and smiling. I have proof of that on my Vine video account but come about 3pm they are done. Usually 3pm is the time my youngest starts acting wild and crazy, wrestling too roughly with his brother, off the walls hyper and cannot seem to focus. It just so happens that about 3pm is also about the time of day when I am utterly exhausted, ready to sleep. My eyes fight to stay open and my body is ready to shut down but I still have quite a […]

Protect-A-Bed Making Pet Owners Happier Giveaway @Protect_A_Bed

Everyone loves their pet, right? Sometimes they even let their pet sleep on their bed, right? Well I know Jenny the Pug sleeps on my bed as well as my daughters bed whenever she can. While my dog doesn’t pee on my bed, she does lick and lick herself for hours on end it seems which leaves my sleep number mattress wet and uncomfortable.  I don’t have time to let my mattress air out before I try to lay down to slumber and I hate all of the fur and allergens that get on my bed from owning this bed […]

Sharing my Queen Size Bed With Little Four Year Old

For some reason my four year old is really having a difficult time being alone anywhere. If he realizes I have left the dining room, he is on the mission to find me. He will whine because he is just so scared yet can not really formulate a good reason why he is scared to be alone. He is scared of his bed. Scared of his shadow. Scared of his bedroom. Scared of his closet. The list could go on forever. I honestly have little problem with him waking mid night and sleeping in my bed or sometimes even he […]

What’s with the Early mornings?

I have tried various bedtimes with my two sons in the past, never having been able to get them to wake up much later than 8am. That was nice, but it only happens on some rare occasion. Regardless of what time my sons go to bed, you can count on them rolling out of bed between 4am and 6am every day, seven days a week. Now I don’t know about you but when the weekend comes I want to stay up a bit later, watching a movie, hanging out or writing on my blogs but then I pay for it […]

Sometimes There’s Too Much Going On

And you just have to take a moment to breath…. Let go of things that can be let go and forget what you can’t control… Remember that you are not given more than you can handle… Life has a way to always working out to be the best it should be. So .. with that being said … I am taking a much needed break and may just sleep while my daughter has a visit with her Great Gram this weekend. Maybe my sons will enjoy some Daddy time so this Mama can close her eyes and recoup to be […]

There’s Has to be an Easier, More Efficient Bedtime Routine

My first born child was always really easy to get to sleep, of course she co-slept with me from the day she was born up until three or four years of age so when I went to sleep, she went to sleep. My sons on the other hand never really co-slept from the beginning. My first born had a bassinet beside my bed so that I could easily nurse him in the middle of the night but after 8 weeks he switched to formula and was in a crib in my bedroom. My last born child co-slept more than his […]
