Another Reason

6.29.2011

I could probably write a long list of reasons of how and why I know I'm not ready to be a mom, but last night solidified an already withstanding reason; lack of sleep.

Now I do not consider myself a lazy person (most of the time), but I like my sleep and I tend to miss it when I don't get it. Last night, around 1:30, I was woken up by the sound of one of our sweet pups sick to their stomach. I look up, use my phone as a makeshift flashlight and see Dani by the door throwing up. She got sick roughly 5  or 6 times last night and I got roughly 5 hours of sleep. Like I said, I like my sleep and 5 hours if for sure not enough. And poor Andrew was the one that stayed up the longest with her, so I don't really have the right to say anything about being tired.

This morning after consuming my rather large cup of coffee, I got to thinking about how moms do that on a regular basis. Not once in awhile, but sometimes nightly. For all the moms out there, I already respected all that you do, but after attempting to function on such a minimal amount of sleep, that respect skyrocketed.

And though I may not have a "real" baby right now, this fur-baby needed me last night and how could I have anything but love for this ridiculous sweet, cute face?!
