Dear Sleep

I miss you, we were once good friends.

Having a newborn around is amazing, she is completely innocent in all ways and I love her more than I thought possible but these sleepless nights are taking their toll on me.

During the day she sleeps like clockwork but as soon as the evening reaches all hell breaks loose. Isabelle will not sleep, we have taken to going out in the car as desperate measures at 3am. Every night we have the same issue and end up going for long drives, 50 mile round trip drives.

I have heard from other parents that there is infact a light at the end of the tunnel and she will settle into a routine. I just hope for our sakes that her routine isnt a “lets keep mummy and daddy awake all night then decide to go to sleep at 5am”

Sleep, I live in hope that we will indeed meet again.
