Each Tuesday, I'm going to share something I am either:
a) thankful for, b) something I witnessed that was an act of kindness, or c) something I did to "pay it forward"
I'd love it if you'd join me. One day a week. One thing. It can take 15 seconds or 4 hours. Don't you feel better when you are able to notice the pretty things in life? Leave a comment here, or share it in your own space, and enjoy being thoughtful...in more ways than one!
This Tuesday: Sleep
I've been a lucky Momma--my boy loves to sleep. He started sleeping through the night at 5 weeks old, and has done really well on a schedule. Yes, we have had our challenges with nap regression, and waking at odd hours and wanting to play, but overall--he loves being in dreamland.
So for the past three nights, I've wondered what in the world happened to my sleeping babe. He's had a fever and oy the teeth--it's been like the newborn stage all over again. I am also someone who enjoys sleep--Ive never been good at pulling all-nighters, and I just honestly need a good 6 hours of sleep to feel "normal".
Ive felt myself getting frustrated--and have had to remember he cannot communicate with me yet what is hurting or bothering him. Self-admittedly, Mook is the one in the house that gets frustrated fast--and I am so thankful he has been calming me down. I'm also doing my best (in the wee hours of the morning, mind you) to soak in the cuddles on the couch while watching Yo Gabba Gabba.
I also remember there were days where I cried to the universe that I would give anything (even sleepless nights) to be able to take care of my baby. Thank you, universe for listening to me, and for reminding me that you gave me exactly what I asked for.
For that, I am so thankful.
What are you sharing on this Thoughtful Tuesday?
