Sometimes Losing Sleep Is worth It (Parenting)

It was maybe about two weeks ago, I think lol. It was in the middle of the night I heard someone walking around in the dark. I’m a light sleeper so my eyes popped open when I heard the foot steps. I knew what those footsteps meant and being so tired at first I dreaded the words that followed “Dad I’m hungry.” It was my son Michael, he is a lot like me and I used to have a huge habit of eating midnight snacks.

So I got up and we both walked into the kitchen. I don’t remember what we ate but I know it was really tasty and the time spent with the little guy was really really nice. I was glad that we had that moment. So fellow parents, I know we lose a lot of sleep for our children but remember that even those moments can be very special and I think the little ones will

  1. I can relate to this. My nephew used to wake me up in the middle of the night because he wants eat and no matter how sleepy I am, I force myself to be with him and those moments are priceless. =)

  2. My parents would just be like “go back to sleep, you’re getting fat.” Lol. Slight exaggeration… at least on my mom’s part!
