I know, I know. I’m supposed to sleep when the baby sleeps. It’s a lovely idea, if I can get the older 3 kids occupied with something and quiet enough to not be a distraction, and can turn my brain off enough to hopefully catch a few winks. Those are two very big if’s.
So what should I do if the big boys are quietly playing Wii, little girl is down for a nap, baby is sleeping, and I’m tired as all get out? I’m supposed to sleep. But I was also in desperate need of a shower. I had to weigh the two options, and in the end, decided I would feel more like a normal human being with clean hair than if I slept for an extra half hour.
