Think of me...

Today I'm asking for a few extra prayers because, well, I'm tired.

When you haven't gotten a decent night's sleep in almost eight months you start to feel run down and tired. I'm not just talking about the "I need to go to bed because I keep falling asleep on the couch" kind of tired. I'm referring to the "I can feel it in my bones that I am on my last leg of sanity and every part of my being is sore and in need of rest" tired.

Actually, tired no longer describes what we are feeling at our house. We crossed that line a long time ago.

We are weary.

At some point Ryan will have to start sleeping past midnight without waking up every 45 minutes. And when he does, and keeps doing it...we will finally breathe a sigh of relief.

And no longer feel this tired. I hope.

And to those "people who mean well" with their advice. Please, no thanks. We've done it all. We've heard it all. We've tried it all.

Really, we just need your prayers and support right now.

  1. I have often said that sleep issues and sleep deprivation are one of the HARDEST things about motherhood! And you have a very severe case of it! I will pray that you have the strength and grace when you need it and that Ryan is able to sleep soon! You will make it!
