I Want To Be As Tired As I Was in College ~ Day 4

I am a mom to 3 (amazing, if I do say so myself) children. Boys, I should also add. 3 boys! I knew as soon as I had my first son I would be a boy mom. So weird, but I totally did. 

My youngest son is 5 months old. We are still in the sleepless nights phase. It is catching up to me. When I first came back from maternity leave, I was running on adrenaline. Now, as more time is going by, I feel as though that lack of sleep is catching up to me. My coffee cup is getting larger and larger as the days progress.

As I was driving to work today, a song came on the radio that reminded me of my college days. I reminisced a little about those days. A smile crossed my face as I thought about all of the amazing memories from this time in my life. Then, I thought about sleep. Staying up all night in college to finish that paper that I procrastinated till the night before the due date, or going out with friends until the sun came up. I thought I was tired then, but now being a parent…I had no idea how rested I was! Even though I stayed up late to finish that paper, I was able to nap between classes the next day. Or, if I had stayed out with friends until the sun came up, I would have slept in till noon Saturday morning. Now, when I am up all night with my newborn, my alarm clock goes off at 5:15 AM. (Unless of course a child has me up already!) There is no time to catch up on sleep or to recharge on the weekends. It is a constant marathon with no break in sight. 

I’m not complaining. I love every second of my awake time with my kids. I just would love to one day soon be “as tired as I was in college.” Because man, that sounds pretty rested!

  1. So true! College tired has nothing on mom tired or pandemic teacher tired. If we only knew then how good we had it!

  2. First… I think we must be the same person. Boy mom of 3 here with our youngest at 10 months. It’s a jungle out there! (Or in here.)

    Second… how I covet “as tired as I was in college” with all those naps. Excellent comparison!

  3. If only we could all be that tired again! I would give my left pinky finger for that kind of rested.
