Thoughts Before I Fall Asleep: A Nightly Ritual

If you’re like me going to sleep is not a 5-minute job. The quiet moments before slumber hits are when my mind decides to go over life’s most mundane AND important things. Lucky me, this has only become worse since I became a mother. I envy people like my husband who, as soon as their head hits the pillow, fall asleep. What is your secret and why aren’t you sharing!?

Here is just a small sample of what LITERALLY keeps me up at night.

  • Thank God today is over.
  • I forgot to put the laundry in the dryer
  • How can I get out of Sunday Family dinner?
  • I shouldn’t have had that last glass of wine.
  • Why can’t I fit into my favorite pants anymore?
  • I could REALLY go for a poutine right now.
  • Why did she have to say it like that?
  • I hope he will be potty trained in time for kindergarten.
  • I can’t believe I said that during my gr. 8 grad dance.
  • Aliens.
  • Did I change her diaper before bed?
  • I need to buy milk tomorrow.
  • What was that sound?
  • Doctor appointment on Tuesday.
  • Am I likeable?
  • If I place a pillow over husband’s face maybe he would stop snoring?
  • Is there such thing as eating too much cheese?
  • The butterfly effect.
  • I need to cut down screen time.
  • What am I doing with my life?
  • Dammit! She woke up!
  • I need to start drinking more water.
  • Why hasn’t he learned to write his name yet?
  • If I fall asleep now I can still get 6 hours of sleep.
  • Did I close the garage?
  • Am I a good mother?
  • Oh. So, there is such thing as too much cheese.
