Glorifying pain in parenting.
“ I need a glass of wine to help me at the end of the day .I am a parent of two kids under 5 !.
“ I feel like I need tiramisu or a double chocolate cake to reward myself in the night after all here have slept. “
“ I need atleast 3 smokes after my youngest sleeps.”
“I need to binge watch Netflix with caramel popcorn for me to function the next day .”
All our coping mechanism to deal with everyday life and parenting signify this: Distraction from pain and feeling of helplessness and hence we all need to sit and lick our wounds in our own ways until we feel we have healed.
I can no way help heal all the wounds in one email or blog but ensuring kids and you are in bed at the right time is one of the best scientifically supported agendas to heal .
Having a design to be your own architect of your evenings after a full days work, you would have to have herculean will power to create every single day . As parents we are all as great as the Hercules every evening.
Give it a little thought and plant that seed in your thought bed as to why not shy away from the Nemean lion and the Hercules fight every evening with your toddler or kid to ensure they get to bed and sleep.
For as little as 10 $ get your sleep queries answered and conserve your limited will power as Veronica Job said (PhD.) for bigger projects like painting with your kid, baking with your kid , despite deadlines, despite night work , despite weekend work .
