Thank You Day

 The past few days I’ve been extra tired due to Caroline’s new favorite hobby of not sleeping the past few nights. That girl is so afraid she’s going to miss out on something if she nods off for a bit. Anyway, I am ready for this new schedule in our Moms on Call program to take so I can get back to our long precious stretches of sleep she was giving us on her previous schedule. Any other MOC users experience a sleep regression during the schedule change at 8 weeks?

Anyway, speaking of not sleeping, I am such a grouch when I don’t get my sleep. And not just a morning grouch but an all day grouch. Poor Matt, he’s learned how to delicately handle me in the mornings after a sleepless night. Last night during one of the shifts (I think it was the 2:30 am shift) I reached over and grabbed the monitor and threw it over to Matt’s side of the bed in an it’s-your-turn gesture. So sweet, right? Anyway, he’s such a saint and graciously got up every hour last night for me to change diapers and feed the little one.

That brings me to thankfulness. Sometimes I just don’t tell him how much I appreciate him. And after reading this article this morning I decided that tomorrow I am going to surprise him with a day of thank you notes. He certainly deserves to know how much I appreciate him and I wish I were better about telling him more often. So tomorrow it is on – thank you day. Watch out mirrors, truck, coffee mugs, lunch box, brief case and remote, I’m coming for ya with some sticky notes…

Feel free to join me, even if you tell your man how much you appreciate him all the time, he still likes to hear it.

Such a great idea!! I think I will be doing the same :) And as a mama that is 2+ years sleep deprived, you really do (kind of) get used to it - hopefully it's very short lived for you!

Love this idea! I need to do this for my husband too...especially at a time when he least expects it :)

It's just a stage, in a few short months-or for me it took years-it will be normal sleep times.

Good idea! We have had a rough couple of nights with out 15 month old (anyone heard of a 15 month sleep regression… maybe it is just molars and shots this week:()…I might just have to do that soon or maybe even today :)
