I haven’t slept in nearly 19 years. What no one tells you about having kids is that your sleep deprivation isn’t over when they they’re no longer babies. Seasoned parents fail to mention sleep regressions, the crack-of-dawn soccer tourneys, the sleepovers with a dozen giggling fifth graders, those last-minute projects that keep everyone up until midnight, and the school buses that arrive before the sun even comes up. Let’s not even get into the number of late night hours parents sit in the living room waiting for their teens to arrive home safely from a party, dance, or date.
I’m pretty sure that by the time my kids stop keeping me up at night, I’ll be one of those old people who naturally wakes up at 4 a.m. Even if you have kiddos who sleep soundly through the night, it can take 13 lullabies, four books, and an act of God to get them to finally doze off. And, even then, you still might find them crawling into your bed at 2 a.m. We, as parents, have all been there.
