Sleepless nights: A late night obstacle course

Sometimes you have to laugh at how bad your night went or you might cry. My night went something like this…

Baby is no longer sleeping
It’s late at night and she’s started weeping.
Off I go to settle her cries 
Patting her bum and singing lullabies. 

Finally, she’s back to sleep
So tiptoe out of her room I creep.
Trying to be quiet as a mouse
As I navigate our messy house.

Then suddenly, out of nowhere,
I accidentally step on her singing bear.
Shhh shhh. Please be quiet.
How does one toy make such a riot?

When all is quiet and sedate,
It’s time to climb over the dreaded stair gate.
Yes. I’ve done it. I’m finally free.
Now it’s back into bed for me.

I finally lay back down, and then,
Suddenly she’s awake again.
Then I repeat these steps all night,
Until she’s up for the day at morning light.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has to perform such a mission to escape the baby’s room once she’s sleeping! Comment below.

  1. Oh, I know that routine so well! I used to pride myself on managing to crawl out of the room on my hands and knees. Those damn singing toys always go off at the worst possible moments, don’t they! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  2. #thesatsesh I’m gonna show off – I haven’t! Little dude is an only child because he has slept well since day one (I’m not risking it the second time lol), fab talent with the poetic twist again – as always I’m a huge fan and love that you are a regular with the sat sesh lovely 🙂

  3. This is my life story right now!! Difference is though she’s still in our room so I have to very quiet even when turning in bed! Or breathe quietly for that matter! By the way, you are so creative! #DreamTeam

  4. You are definitely not alone in this one! It brings me right back to those days when almost no sleep was had at all at times. I doesn’t ever feel like it, but it will get better. Maybe not soon. But it will. Sending hugs and a sleep mask. Thanks for joining us for the #DreamTeam xx
