No Sleep November | November Self Portrait

Some people are working on their facial hair this month.
I’m just working on my wrinkles.

I have two children:
#1 hates eating and
#2 hates sleeping.
I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THAT WAS POSSIBLE.
These are basic, human needs!

After a litany of homemade clinical trials with sweet child #2
we experienced some success and got three blessed weeks of almost uninterrupted sleep.
That is, until nearly two weeks ago when she got a terrible, terrible cold.
That’s when everything went down the drain.

Averaging only a few, broken up hours of sleep per night for over a week
due to dispensing medicine
and comforting a precious, miserable little body
is enough to turn a mother into a sleep deprived crazy.

Sigh.
I suppose I’ll survive to old age.

I’ll just invest in some good dark circle concealer and wrinkle cream?
Now taking cosmetic recommendations!
