Quotes For Parents Who Miss The Good Old Days Of Sleeping In

Okay, I'm about to say something that may very well bring a tear to the eye of every parent out there... Do you guys remember what it was like to sleep in?

No, let me rephrase that. Do you guys remember what it was like to sleep period? Yeah, feel free to grab a tissue and dab away your sorrows. Rest assured we're all doing the same thing.

We love our children, but good golly do we miss the days of getting a decent amount of sleep every night, and not struggling to put wildly reluctant children to bed, only to wake up to those same children jumping on you at 5 AM.

If any of that sounds like it perfectly describes your life, I think you're really going to enjoy these quotes.

Sunshine is the real enemy here.

Either it's too bright for bedtime, so they want to stay up and bounce around the house for several more hours, or it's not dark enough to stay asleep, so they get out of bed in the wee hours of the morning to come bother us.

Whichever way you slice it, the sun has no place in a parent's heart.

I guess we were feeling really bored that day.

Looking back, we aren't sure why we would ever willingly sign up for this kind of life, but we can only assume we were having an off day and maybe enjoyed a few too many drinks, and suddenly "being a parent" sounded like a good idea.

It's the only way.

Otherwise you're going to just spend your entire evening chasing children around the house, desperately negotiating the number of bedtimes stories to hours of sleep, and refilling water glass after water glass until they inevitably "gotta potty."

Once they realize this, the next part of your life begins.

Seriously, they should learn how glorious it is to wake up and then just lie in bed, soaking up all the coziness and putting off the day's responsibilities for as long as possible.

What has these kids so damn eager to get the day going?
