A Sleep Mask is a Mother’s Best Friend

sleepmaskI recently found my old sleep mask. It wasn’t lost. It was inside the drawer of my old bedside table that I recently moved over to the other side of the bed, where Annika still sleeps. She was perusing through the drawer and found it. Tried it on and then relinquished it only because it was way too big, even with her huge hair.

I haven’t used this thing in years. I had even forgotten that I had it. Then I remember how much better rested I used to be when I wore it.

I hate sleeping with lights on in my room, yet, I have a nightlight for Annika. She’s been “scared of the dark” since she was about 3.

So, the past two nights I’ve worn it. I’m waking up feeling more refreshed, better rested than I have in years. It’s amazing. Get one.

Side note: Yes, I realize I haven’t updated this blog in about two months. I know. I’m sure nobody’s reading anymore except the few hundred spam bots and unbelievably stupid guest posters who keep emailing me with ridiculous ideas like, “How to Find a Babysitter.” Yes, because all my readers, who are interested in hearing about a single mom who parents using attachment parenting principles are interested in using Craigslist to find a nanny. Um, no thanks.

    LOL – I’m still reading! 🙂 I don’t use a sleep mask, but I actually have the opposite issue. My husband likes our bedroom to be superdark, so when it is time to get up in the morning I’m waking in a dark room. When he is out of town I leave the curtains open and let the sun come in – I wake up much more easily that way, and it actually makes me feel more rested.

    Aw, I’ve read some of your awesome posts! Wish I could stop by more. 🙂 I love the idea of a mask, maybe once the baby is a little older. I love pitch dark myself, but neededsome light on in the room for cosleeping for years the first time around, and again w/the 5 month old.
