Just 5 More Minutes

Last night I had a bout of insomnia..which is a regular occurance.  What made last night different was that I couldn't take anything to help me sleep.  We co-sleep with the LO and even if I didn't co-sleep I would be afraid that I wouldn't wake up if she needed me. 
I drifted off about 2:30 after moving her yet again because I was hugging the edge of the bed..and I have a king size bed!  She woke up at 4:30 for a bottle and moving around woke me up enough to struggle getting back to sleep.  The alarm went off at 6:30 which I pummell to the point of breaking and the LO stirred..all I wanted was to close my eyes for 5 more minutes but LO was having nothing to do with that..I started working on this poem (advisory....I am not a poet and I know it!)

Please little one give me 5 more minutes
To lay in bed
To rest my head

Please little one just 5 minutes more
To cook us dinner
To do my hair
To sit on the couch and just not to care

I need 5 more minutes
To close my eyes
I need 5 more minutes 
To just to get by

I need 5 more minutes
just to cuddle with you


  1. awwh I feel your pain, mama. Sometimes I feel like a zombie just surviving :(
    Take some time for yourself when your little one is asleep, read a little, meditate, or something. Should boost a little energy <3

  2. Yes. This.
