Deliberately not sleeping IS NOT THE SAME as being sleep deprived…
WARNING. This is A RANTY POST. It is partly tongue in cheek, because I try to be vaguely witty and sarcastic in my grumpiness but it is also a reminder to people that there are people out there who are TIRED, very tired, and not by choice. If you choose to stay up all night […]READ MORE
Short term memory loss, the by product of sleep deprivation no one tells you about
My name is Karen, or at least I think it is. You see, I suffer from short term memory issues. It’s a problem I have had for a couple of years. I suffer from short term memory loss beyond the usual joking about “baby brain” or “mummy brain”. You see, I am chronically sleep deprived. […]READ MORE
I’m not a bad parent because my kid doesn’t sleep.
My kid doesn’t sleep. There, I said it. Ok, he does, but he doesn’t sleep well sometimes and we still have nights where he wakes once, if not more than once, sometimes up to three times. He needs help to go back to sleep and he often wakes early (and I mean early, before 6am) […]READ MORE

I medicate my kid… melatonin and sleep issues.
I do. I medicate him! That’s shocking, isn’t it? The fact is he is prescribed melatonin to help him go to sleep at night. There. The truth is out. Judge away. Judge a lot. Lecture me on how I should do bedtime, and ask me if I’ve tried all the recommended techniques to keep bedtime […]READ MORE
I am not always upbeat about being sleep deprived…
It’s no secret that I don’t get much sleep. My lovely boy doesn’t sleep that well, or goes through patches where sleep is pretty challenging. It sometimes is good, sometimes it isn’t. We are currently in a very rough patch, due to routine changes and him being extra sensitive to change. It’s part and parcel […]READ MORE

If sleep is for the weak, then I am weak….
If sleep is for the weak, then I am week. I am also TIRED. Bone tired, exhausted, beyond my capacity to cope with life, because I am sleep deprived. My gorgeous little boy has been such a poor sleeper for so long (from aged 9 months until now, approx 29 months) that my body has […]READ MORE
