Why Sleep

The past couple of ___ (months/years?) I've been missing good sleep. And I mean, honest to goodness long and uninterrupted zzzs. Oftentimes when the little one is asleep, I try to catch up with work or aimlessly search for stuff on the net. I know I should put to good use the free time to rest. But no, I find myself lost in tons of things to do besides lie in bed.

I wonder when I'd get to enjoy sleeping again. Sleep in til mid-day both on a saturday and sunday.. I suppose, just like everything else I will get it back in a couple of years. For now, I should be happy that I get to sneak out of my mummy duties for a couple of hours every day. C'est la vie.

Mummyhood Tips

As much as I try to keep a balanced life, I cannot seem to perfect time my time management with all the different things I do. I really wish I could just stop working for 5 years straight, so I can concentrate on the little one. But of course that's not financially viable.

I often read tips on these topics, motherhood, working mums, work at home mums, etc etc etc.. But, in reality it is so much more difficult to practice. *sigh*

Sometimes I wish I had household help to clean after me, that way I could focus my energy on teaching the little one, going to the park with her, enjoying our quality time. Patiently.

My hubby always reminds me that it would only be a few years before she grows up and I would get my "personal" life back... Sometimes I wish I could speed time up, as I am aching and craving to have some me time. I would like to be able to go to the toilet, or have a bath in peace. Or, take a quick lunch (at the moment, our lunch time is 30 minutes. minimum.). I've always been a very, very patient person. I think I am one of the most patient persons I know :) But I find myself sometimes, admittedly, getting impatient. I guess that's how it is when she is "attached" to me day in day out, no matter whether I am working, eating, sleeping, taking a shower, cooking, etc. I should be flattered. I know. But human nature gets the better of me. I get tired too.
