Here’s how you can tell if a working mom has a big report due the next day

If you were a fly on a wall, you’d easily be able to tell whenever a working mom has a big day ahead of her in the morning. This is what you’d see:

11:30 pm:  Shutting down computer after putting some finishing touches on a report.

1:00 am:  Youngest child wakes up. Mom makes sure everything is okay, puts in some cuddle time and offers some milk.

1:30 am: Youngest child now settled, Mom returns to her bed.

2:00 am: Youngest child awakes again. Mom repeats steps from earlier, with no success.

2:30 am: Mom goes back to her bed with the youngest and hopes for the best. Youngest takes some time to settle into bed, does a lot of flopping around on Mom’s head.

4:30 am: Eldest child comes to bedroom and wakes Mom up. Mom can’t even process why child is up … either a nightmare or mosquito, but ushers child back to their bed.

5:30 am: Mom is in bed with two children. No one is asleep.

  1. Ugh. Sounds like a night at my house. I still wake up sometimes not knowing whose bed I’m in.

    • Ah, a mother’s life, eh? haha! For me, it’s a Murphy’s Law situation. My children have been good, independent sleepers for ages, but if I have something important the next day? A whole different story! :)

  2. Aside from the musical beds I’m sighing in understanding. This sounds like every night for the first two months I came back to work. The EXHAUSTION!!

    Sounds remarkably like Mom on Summer Vacation. Child #1 wakes up at 1 am to sleep with me. Ditto child #2 after wetting the bed at 4 am. As an older and wiser mom, I immediately zipped into child #1’s dry bed and slept soundly for 3 whole hours. Sigh.

    So… did you get the report done?!

    It’s like they know how hard you’ve been working and want to be there to support you.

  5. Do you have a camera in my bedroom?

    Dropped by as part of the blog rally — looking forward to reading more in the future!
