I have always worked day shift but its been a year since my shift change to graveyard and i have to say i love it i get to spend the day with my daughter and nap when she takes her nap. When I have my nights off we have "slumber partys" all of us including her dad and she loves it. While i work she sleeps under the care of her dad and if he has to work super aunt comes in handy as well. I have to say though that at times i feel guilty that i cant be home just watching her sleep. I also have noticed in myself that I buy buy buy anything she wants and im figuring out if it can be the guilt i am feeling. I do have my grumpy days and i feel its because of the lack of sleep. I tried putting her in daycare she was there for about 2 weeks and i couldnt sleep a minute without thinking about her. She will be starting Kindergarten soon and im hoping it will help me catch up on my sleep but how can i ease my mind? Im hoping there is more moms out there that can relate too working graveyard.
