Yes, Cruella de Vil. The worst villain in animated history.
You know how they say that having children is the most beautiful thing in the world?? Sure it is. But….come on, seriously? It is f@##$ng hard. Sometimes the hard part takes over the beautiful part. I never expected to say this: My children have shown me a side of me I had never met before. The Cruella de Vil side of me.
NO, they are not at fault. I blame everything on sleep deprivation.
For the past two weeks both my children have worked well together (I wonder if it is some devious calculated plan of them) in waking me up 3-4 times during the night for extremely
trivial important reasons. We have explained to them that they should wake us up only in matters of emergency but it has come to my attention that this word has two completely different meanings to both parties (illness vs tucking in for the 835th time). Iliana takes the night shift and Yiannis the early morning one by making sure I wake up shortly after six.
Adding the hormonal thing us women get once a month to the consecutive sleep deprivation and voilà…A slightly blonder version of the villain mentioned above.
And then people wonder why I reply to the frequently asked question of whether we are considering having no 3 with a big fat NO accompanied by the most horrified look on my face.
Having said that, I love them to pieces and wouldn’t change a thing about them. I would just appreciate a bit more of uninterrupted sleep.
Until next time,
