I don't know why a mom would feel guilty for napping when she's been up all night with her kid. A mom is the household executive. She gets to say when she naps or doesn't. You can't be a good mom if you're not rested enough to make good decisions or if you snap at your kids when you're tired. When they nap, you nap. Period. Where does this guilt come fom, anyway?

My oldest dd has a very unique name. I chose it for its uniqueness and the respect it garners. She is named after sacred Hindu texts and in more vague terms, means "knowledge". Her name is simple and cool, but very unusual. Haha, her middle name is Ashley. I gave her a common American middle name in case she didn't appreciate the uniqueness of her first name. She loves it though. I knew she would :)

I hate feeling like this. Between lyrica, upcoming period, stress, and a kid who refuses to sleep before 10pm or after 5am, I just need a break. I'm so tired, and everything by makese cry or makes me really angry. Ugh. I hate the person I am.

I know you left comments closed, but I really hope the situation with your dd asthma and her not sleeping gets better soon for both of you. And that you can get some sleep real soon too. Hopefully she starts feeling better and you can get some much sleep. Please don't feel guilty for trying to take a nap mid day, all of us moms have tried to do that too when our kids were younger (hugs)

I have confessed before that my youngest has asthma and is on medication. It is unfortunately hard to control when she's sick. She's 19 mos old and usually sleeps all night. But when she's sick even with medication sometimes nothing works. I can't let her cry at night when she's sick because she will have an attack. Laying down with her or putting her in my bed doesn't work. Rocking her in the glider doesn't work. Some nights I can't even get her to just lay down on the couch with me and watch TV. This last time has been brutal. In five days I have gotten maybe one nights sleep. When she is sick I just want to cry. My DH works a dangerous job and leaves at 430AM so I am mainly the one who does nights. And I feel guilty if I try to nap during the day. I'm so tired I feel like I'm losing my mind.

My son's class just came back from a camp where they learned a lot about diversity, conflict resolution, and spreading peace. He had a great experience, and says he feels "different." He's all pumped up. Right now he is singing along to a CD of songs he learned at camp. The songs have titles like "I Don't Know What It's Like to Be You (The Empathy Song)" and "It's Okay to Cry." The thing is, my kid already knew all this stuff. How much you want to bet that all the class bullies were singing along around the campfire and will be back to bullying on Monday?
