Exhaustion: To wear out completely. 

You know the saying; “you can sleep when you are dead.” Well, I used to like that saying until I experienced what extreme exhaustion is like. The life of a mom with 6 week old twins (and 12-year-old ones too) is one that never seems to get rest.

This morning at around 3:30 a.m., I found myself trying to bribe my 6 week old daughter into letting me sleep. I actually said out loud, “Haley, if you let mom sleep for 3 hours, I promise to give you whatever you want later.” As I am sure you guessed, my little bribe got me nowhere, certainly not 3 hours of sleep, but hey when you are THAT tired you will try anything.

I looked at my sweet little girls as they slept soundly today, with a bit of jealousy. I remember the days, just a few weeks ago, where I could lay down on my bed and not stress about having to have a bottle ready or diapers next to me. I remember getting up to use the bathroom without worrying about how much noise I was making. I remember sleeping when I wanted, where I wanted. I guess it is true that we can sleep when we are dead, but I would really appreciate some sleep while I am alive. I don’t have to have hours of it, but an hour or two would be nice. So, until those days come again… I will daydream about sleep and continue with my bribes. Who knows, many one day soon, it will work.

Love, A VERY exhausted mom!
