Some of the many crazy/embarrassing/forgetful/bad-mummy things I have done through sleep deprivation!
Put shower gel in my hair, after I have washed it and only realised by the smell.
Tried to put the cereal in the fridge and the milk in the cereal cupboard.
Walked to school/opened the door with, delete as appropriate: bra straps undone/ top still pulled up/ boob on show.
Forgotten my kids names in mid conversation with other adults.
Burst into tears when someone asks if I am ok, or says you’re looking tired!
Resisted the massive urge to punch/give a sarky comment back to the well-meaning mums who ask if she is good? No she’s out partying all night!
Put blusher all over my face instead of bronzer.
Walked to school/gone out for the day with mascara on only one eye.
Stood waiting for my coffee when I haven’t pushed the button!
Used dry shampoo a little too much. White hair anyone?
Realised an hour away from home that we have gone out for the day without a sling or the pram.
Mid change, realised that I haven’t put the wipes back in the changing bag before leaving the house.
Not been able to sleep at night despite sleep deprivation, as my pillow is the place I suddenly remember all the things I have forgotten to do.
Forgotten to pack a change of clothes and baby is sick, or has a poonami.
Walked to the shop to get milk. Come back from the shop with biscuits, chocolate and no milk.
Forgotten what I am talking about half way through a sentence.
Cried like a toddler, for no other reason than being tired.
Got back from the school run and seen the football kit/lunch on the side. Had to go back out to drop it off.
Left the washing in the machine and had to rewash, not once but twice from forgetting to take it out.
Not known what day, month, year it is.
Read a text/message/tweet and replied to it, only in my head!
Put on odd socks and not even cared.
Please tell me I’m not the only one?
Disclaimer: I’m sure there are many, many more things, but I’m too tired to remember.
