    Default You know you're tired when...

    Thought I would start up a light-hearted thread to get some laughs going about funny things we do as tired parents! I will start!



    1. When you are cutting the crusts off your own sandwich, while thinking how funny it was that last time you made yourself a sandwich, you cut the crusts off. #-o (I did that today!)

    ...you make up a bottle of formula only to throw it all out because you can't remember how many scoops you have put in! (I did this a few times when DS was a baby until I realised how much it was costing me and forced myself to concentrate!)

    LOL bon_w

    I do the same thing, but I had to start counting out loud, because I make a jug full, a whole days worth, so I have to count up to 10 or 12!


    I know I'm tired when Brandon is in bed with us, and wakes needing a feed/nappy change, and I fal straight backl asleep and dream Jonathan has done it, only to wake up 15 seconds later, and wonder why Brandon is still crying.

    you know you are tired when you put boiled water in the baby's bottle and then fill it up with full cream milk instead of formula 8-[

    I have done the lost count with scoops trick too.

    lmao @ Kathryn.
    I've almost done that. Because I always make Jonathan a coffe every time I boil the kettle. One time I had my 720ml of hot boiled water cooled down enough to add formula powder, and put coffe powder in instead. Had to thrrow out the water and start again. Wasted a whole half an hour!

    Roflmao Susan.

    Last night Kameron wanted some milo, and gave me his cup. I decided to give him Nesquick instead. put the nesquick into the cup to discover it was still half full of apple cordial. At least it didn't take much to throw it down the sink and start again.

    You know you're tired when you get up in the early am hours and pick your boy up out of the cot to comfort/feed/change him, when you realise that he is actually fast asleep, but the cat is meowing at the front door to be let outside...
