Things Mommies Have Done While Sleep Deprived


Some people believe that being a mom is one of the best jobs a person can have.

Certainly, being a mom means you are warmed at night by the thought that you have a little pursuit of happiness who loves you completely.

However, motherhood requires a lot of work. Constant hard work. People that don’t have children could never imagine how hard is to look after the precious little baby the whole time. Your “work” is 24/7 on your mind.

You might be watching the news or your favorite TV show, but if your baby needs you, there’s no pressing pause.


If the baby cries in the middle of the night, who is also awake trying to make it sleep? The mother! Do mothers sleep tight at night? I don’t think so!

Every sleepless night is worth the sacrifice. Because one day, they’ll have to do the same thing for their own kids.

Below are a few hilarious things moms have done while sleep deprived.

1.“I walked out to my car and strapped my son into his car seat before I realized that I didn’t have pants on.”


2.“I got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and was surprised to find I felt warm and wet. Turns out I was so tired that I was [relieving myself] on the couch instead of in the toilet. I guess you know that it was me cleaning up the mess in the middle of that night.”


3.“I kept trying to open the front door of my house by pressing the unlock button on my car key.”


4.“I put cartoons on for my bubble bath so I could finally relax for 5. Only an hour later the kitchen was completely destroyed, there were sponges and clothes everywhere, the baking paper roll she could find was all over the kitchen floor.”


5.“I used soap instead of toothpaste to brush my teeth.”


6.“ In the middle of the night instead of  patting my baby’s bum back to sleep… Only to realize I hadn’t got out of bed yet and was actually patting my husband’s bum.”


7.“I drove to pick up my daughter. I freaked out at the daycare teacher for “losing my child!” (and I mean completely hysterical) until the manager had to calm me down and remind me that my daughter doesn’t go to daycare on that day and that she was home with her dad.”


8.“I was so tired one night when the baby was crying, I had a waking dream that I was already feeding her so I didn’t have to get up in reality.”


9. “When my baby was a few months old, I wanted to have my first booze after a long time. Apparently, the combination of being sleep-deprived and not having had a drink in over a year was a bad decision. I fell asleep at the table!”


10. “I finished my grocery shopping, then fastened the baby into her car seat and realized I had left all of the groceries in the cart in the parking lot.”


11.“I got in the shower, turned the water on…. with all my clothes, including jacket still on.”


12.“When I was in the hospital with my son I started hallucinating because I was awake for 48 hours straight. I kept seeing a rug fly and move like the magic carpet in Aladdin.”


13.”I was finally preparing to sleep so I removed my makeup and took off my earrings. I was so sleep deprived, though, that I threw away my earrings and put the dirty makeup wipe in my jewelry box.”


14.“I put my wallet in the freezer and the frozen peas in my handbag.”


15.“One night, after weeks and weeks of sleepless nights, I honestly believed the baby was crying because my husband had taken money from him. I had actually been sleep-walking and we were laughing about it the following day.”


16.“How about forgetting your own birthday? Me and my husband had a 20-day-old baby and we only realized it a week later. Oops.”


17.“One day we were all gathered in the room with me but no one was holding the baby.Of course, I yelled, ‘Where’s the baby?!’ My husband  gave me a cold look saying, ‘Um, honey, you’re holding her.’”


18.“After pumping milk at 3 a.m. I walked into the kitchen and dumped it all down the drain. I started screaming the second I realized, waking up everybody.”


19.“I put toilet paper in the fridge”


20.“When my baby woke up one the night crying I answered the door believing there was someone ringing the doorbell.”


21.“I’ve been so tired, I thought my husband’s suit was my pajamas and tried putting it on.”


22.“I filled a sippy with milk and handed it to the dog. When he didn’t take it I got really annoyed. It took me a full five seconds to realize he wasn’t the 2-year-old.”


23.“I hopped into the car after putting the boys in the car and took off. Stopped in the middle of the street, I opened the door and stood up. Sure enough—my coffee on the roof of my car.”


24.“Went to the supermarket to quickly get some bread and was rocking and patting the bottom of the bread like it was my baby.”
