My fourth child is a month previous. I’m formally a Mombie.
Since I used to be little, I’ve LOVED sleep. Being sleep-deprived doesn’t match me properly — don’t mess with me round three p.m.! My different youngsters have been comparatively good sleepers, however this man needs to eat or be held by me all day lengthy. Don’t get me incorrect, I stay for the cuddles, but my mind is popping to finish mush. If I don’t write every thing down, I’ll overlook what I’m doing all day.
Whereas pregnant, I knew that my little man was going to be an evening owl. The minute 10:45 p.m. hit, he would begin transferring round in my stomach like loopy. My late-night habits began just a few months in the past whereas he was conserving me up.
My odd hours have led to a little bit of a web-based purchasing dependancy — and I don’t even keep in mind making among the purchases. I’ve turn into BFFs with the FedEx and UPS supply individuals since I’m at all times discovering some loopy deal. You at all times hear cautionary tales about Ambien resulting in purchasing addictions, however I believe sleep deprived-parents could be in the identical boat.
The downward spiral begins with late-night Fb scrolling whereas nursing. It’s like Huge Brother is at all times listening and ready for the midnight hour to hit. (Facet observe, I’m additionally hooked on the present Huge Brother…) I’ll see an advert for an AMAZING deal at a retailer and click on over. I at all times have a tendency to seek out nice offers on gadgets we should have, but after ordering, I’ll fully overlook it ever occurred.
I are likely to give you purchasing lists whereas I’m rocking within the glider after which Amazon Prime involves the rescue. Is there something extra rewarding than NOT having to go to the shop and getting a supply in two days? Coconut oil? Amazon has it. New board ebook for the little man? Amazon. It’s harmful!
I believed this subject was simply private, however after a confession on Instagram tales the opposite day, I spotted a whole lot of mothers have this similar private subject. Fortunately, my Mombie mind continues to be a cut price shopper…I haven’t bought something super- costly. One in all my buddies did over $400 in harm on Amazon on Prime Day. One other buddy signed up for two meal supply providers in a single week. Yikes!
Resolution: Put the telephone down, Mama. Put it down!
