What is the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome as a parent?



what's yours?
Sleep deprivation!

The biggest challenge that I’ve had to overcome as a parent is not getting enough sleep, and I think every parent totally relates to that feeling. Sometime my husband and I work late at night and early in the morning, and there are times at 2 or 3am that my kids wake me up with a nightmare or an accident in the bed, and it is 24/7 parenting. I haven’t had a full night’s rest since my son was born 7 years ago.  It’s really tough to overcome because you have to get your head back in the game the next day to get your kids ready for school, make breakfast, and start work. As hard as it is to be away from my kids, it’s the best to walk into a hotel room and know that you’re going to get a full night’s sleep and nothing and no one is going to bother you.
