When you’re a tired mom, most of your fantasies include sleep.
Being a mom has ushered in a whole new meaning to the word “tired.” Here are some signs you’re mom-level tired:
- You’ve tried to make coffee without the filter, without the pot, and/or without the actual coffee.
- When you hear people say they’ve “overslept,” your eyes roll back so hard, you can see your tailbone.
- You don’t even remember what getting 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep feels like.
Here are some must-haves for any moms who desperately miss sleeping:
