Life with little ones. If you are a parent you've had plenty of mornings where you wake up feeling like you got hit by a bus! That is me this morning. I had a little 5 year old wake me up in the middle of the night claiming she had a nightmare. No problem, mom to the rescue. I laid down with her for a bit, then when I thought she had fallen asleep, I went back to bed, nope! I hear her calling my name shortly after, this time she was thirsty....

I gave her a drink of water and back to bed she went. Nope! Third time's a charm right? This time her throat was hurting. Forget it! I told her to come to my bed and out she went. Sometimes that's all it takes. Momma's bed was all she wanted but not before making me have a sleepless night. The joys of being a parent. Ugggghhh, that's what naps are for I guess. Does this happen to you often parents?
