Following last week where I felt I was rather productive. This week I've been exhausted and feeling increasingly tired throughout the week. For many mothers I'm sure tiredness and babies come hand in hand but how do you know it’s that and not Diabetes playing up?!
It could also be due to it getting dark early and my eldest daughter is very much one for getting up with the sun. On Tuesday she decided that she would stay up once Daddy had gone to work on an early shift! We still went to toddler group though as we’d aimed to meet up with a friend of ours. On arrival I was asked whether I needed tea as I looked like I needed it and my eldest looking a little drunk tired, while baby slept in my arms.
Talking of baby she has decided that she’d rather not sleep through the night after all and wakes us up every three hours! I'm wondering whether it was my fault in part as she’d started sleeping through until I lost my rings and kept waking up fearing they’d gone to the rubbish dump!
Whatever the reason I'm wondering whether I need to shake up how I do things choosing to write posts on pen and paper before I go to bed for instance and taking photos first thing in the morning instead.
How do you cope with exhaustion?
