Every night the bedtime stories are read. Teeth are brushed. Good nights are said. And 30 seconds after the lights are dimmed will be the pitter-patter of little feet.
No matter how tired the parents are â€“ those little ones never want to go to sleep.
Not to mention those unexpected middle of the night visits â€“ that moment at 3 a.m. when you roll over in bed and find a 3-year-old at eye level. Silent and staring unblinkingly. Waiting for you to notice his needs.
Frankly, itâ€™s creepy. Makes for a lot of restless nights.
This should come as no surprise â€“ but Iâ€™m not the only tired parental type person out there. Itâ€™s one of the reason that label â€œMommy Bloggerâ€ is such a big genre here on the big wide interwebs.
And as it turns out, a group of us are putting together an anthology on just such an exhausting subject.
What? Did you just read that right? Yes! Iâ€™m going to part of a published book that youâ€™re TOTALLY going to want to read.
