“Has anyone warned you about the insomnia yet?” Asked a Dad-of-2 friend of mine after Church one morning.
I turned my sleep fuelled head to face him: “What”
It turned out, that after a while, for no good reason, Dads just struggle to sleep. I didn’t believe him. My head at that point, very much wanted to sleep very very soon after I hit the pillow, sofa, chair… Etc…
I never thought I would imagine I’d be laying here. Waiting to go to sleep.
Some nights, I’m kept awake by a mad amount of things flying through my head, other nights I’m simply not tired, these are nights like tonight. I creep into our room, and due to the sounds of a baby thinking about waking up, I have to ninja myself to my side of the bed.
By the time I’ve got here, I’ve found myself oddly awake.
Do any other dads out there struggle to sleep, not because of the little one?
