I have been wandering around like a zombie today because of lack of sleep last night. Eve has been a little madam and slept right through the morning while I have made vague attempts to get some tasks done. This has occurred with very little success as I have developed the habit of walking into a room and immediately forgetting why I was going there. This has happened at least 6 times today.
However, as a result of sleep deprivation last night, and the SAS crack training course has nothing on my daughter in this respect, I have made a new discovery when it comes to sleep.
It is the type of sleep you have when your body has simply had enough, when it knows it needs to cram in 8 hours as fast as it can and make you functional, human even. It is, quite simply, the deepest sleep I have ever had and I feel like I've had a full night even though it was only an hour before Eve woke us up.
I have decided my new discovery is to be called "Mummy sleep"
