TSS: Running on Fumes

Mommy News

Being a mom is hard. I am so tired and sleep deprived these days. The little girl is having some sleep issues that are keeping all of us up at night. Time for some sleep training which means tears for both baby and mommy. Current book about infant sleep that I am seeking guidance from: 
Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child
Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Baby by Marc Weissbluth, MD

What other resources should I look into, moms? 

Current Reads
Most books I am reading these days are on my iPhone Kindle app. I can use one hand, read in the dark, etc. Much easier right now than reading from an actual book. Not good, since I have a a huge pile of review books to read. Little girl needs to start sleeping!


Besides the baby sleep resource book, I am also reading Dreamwalk by Sarah MacManus. Look for a review soon.

Next books TBR and reviewed:

Gone With A Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West
The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton

On the Needles
As you can imagine, I am also having a hard time getting some knitting done. I have, however, gotten some hats knit for the little girl.

 I am currently working on Miss Dashwood by Heather Ramsey from It is mostly done, just needs the loose ends tucked in, earflaps attached and ties knit. One of these days.

Happy Sunday!

  1. hope the little one and you get some zzzz's . I'll send you some magical fairy dust for that restful sleep.

    As for knitting... you're more far along than I ever got. I gave up after my fiasco with the scarf...;)

  2. I'm currently waiting for Tapestry of Love to come in the mail, so I'm looking forward to your opinion of it if you do a review!

  3. Aisle B-Thanks for the fairy dust. I think it may be working.

    Julie- I am hoping to get it reviewed by the end of the month. I have had it for awhile. I need to read.

  4. When my kids were babies we had sleep issues too. It's not easy when you're going through it but it does get better and becomes a fuzzy, distant memory. I hope you get more sleep very soon!

    She is SO adorable and I love the hat too!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
