Another Beautiful Sunrise

Well it is official, I have seen another beautiful sunrise.  That is more sunrises than I witnessed my entire life before I had a baby.  Yes there was one particular night in Beantown when I witnessed the sunrise and those two nights on the Greek island of Mykonos when we closed down the nightclub but all in all I usually made it to bed before the sun came out.  Who knew that motherhood would change that?  No my baby wasn’t up with me, yet again she and hubby were peacefully snuggled in bed.  But as I’m finding out the more new moms I meet, this tends to be a common occurrence.  You either finish a feeding and can’t get back to sleep or wake up because baby hasn’t woken up for a feeding and can’t get back to sleep.  I’d like to say that I solved the world’s problems last night but honestly after checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, emails, CNN, my hometown paper and local papers, really there wasn’t much more to do.  Not much is on TV between 3am and 5am other than various infomercials even when you have 900 channels.

So what do you do when you can’t sleep?  Do you read? Warm milk?  Help a momma out and share your tips!!

A little ditty about Jack and really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.
