Stay at home parents, I need your help!

Good Morning Guys! It’s time for another Friday Confessions!

I confess that I still haven’t made any changes to my hair. Remember, how I mentioned last week needing some ideas, well I failed at making an appointment. Partly, because life has been super busy and partly because I haven’t decided what to do with it yet. I am loving the simplicity of my current cut but craving something fun too…Dilemma.

I confess that I am needing ideas on how to get our nine month old to sleep through the night. He wakes up crying and it seems everything we do: change him, feed him, etc doesn’t seem to work. He does stop crying once he’s held though. Which makes me wonder if he’s just crying to be held? Parents? What do you think we should do? Any tips on how to get him to sleep through the night?

I confess that part of the problem with him not sleeping through the night could be that he isn’t getting his naps in during the day. Our current child care situation isn’t ideal. He cries when the other baby cries and is unable to nap. We are working on coming up with another solution for child care, one that has him napping. Again, any suggestions?

I confess that my runs have been going great, they have been kept short, but they are good. Especially, figuring we are still waking several times during the night. Sleep deprivation affects training for sure. Don’t ever underestimate the power of sleep, my friends!

sleep deprivation

I confess that my blogging this week hasn’t been stellar due to not too much happening to report. Pretty much trying to adjust to making parenting choices and hopefully have some answers soon. Who knows, I may be transition to being a stay at home mom (SAHM) during the week and continue working part-time on the weekend. Any other parents recently make this transition? If so, was it scary to adjust?

Your turn:

Any tips on getting your child to sleep through the night?

Any “stay at home” parents out there?
