Sleep Deprived Parents Do Crazy Stuff!
There's an old saying, "People who say they sleep like a baby don't have one." If you're a parent, you know the truth of that. The New York Post recently published the results of a survey in which 2,000 parents were asked about the craziest things sleep deprivation drove them to. The results are startling. Respondents spend an average of 33 hours per week on child related activities, with less than 1 hour of "me time."
Here are the 10 craziest things parents have done while "out of it."
#1 Tried to wash clothes in the toilet
#2 Put baby formula in their coffee
#3 Texted their boss thinking it was their partner
#4 Took a shower fully clothed
#5 Tried to make a phone call on the TV remote
#6 Left the house completely naked
#7 Looked for shoes in the refrigerator
#8 Waited for a stop sign to turn green
#9 Drove to work without dropping the kids off at school first
#9 Cooked dinner at breakfast time
I've raised 2 children, don't recall anything as crazy is this stuff. On the other hand, that was long ago. Time colors our memories.
