sleeping beauty

No amount of coffee can keep me awake these days. I'm tired. And cranky. And there's not much I can do about it.

A mom just needs her sleep.

Apparently so does a preschooler.

I arrived home a bit late Monday. Dad2Amara had started dinner. We were moments away from eating.

And all I wanted to do was hug Amara.

"Amara?" No response. "Amara?" Still no response.

My little princess was in bed fast asleep. Hours later, she's still down for the count. But even a kiss from Mom2Amara isn't going to wake this beauty from her slumber.

I didn't get my hug today. Guess it's one of those things a working mom has to sacrifice every once in awhile.


  1. Hmmm... the most notable thing to me about this post:

    "Dad had started dinner."

    How does one prompt this type of behavior?

  2. this was apparently written after the sleeping beauty woke up several times during the night...
