Moms- sleep like a baby!

Having kids and sleeping well at night is something every mother struggles with. Even if your baby does sleep at night you may find that your night rest has become disturbed after endless nights of waking up to fee your baby.

Some moms ask their Doctor for some help but I believe natural remedies should be tried first. You still want to be able to wake up if you need to., some help that your Doctor prescribes  may make you even more tired the next day.

If you find it hard to sleep at night try these simple steps;

* Go for a daily walk for a minimum of 30 minutes. You might think it won't help but trust me it will!

* Avoid coffee and tea after 4pm.

* Get your hubby to put your child to sleep- while he does that you spend some time reading or doing something relaxing.

* Prepare yourself a natural sleeping remedy; Add 1tsp of honey to 1 cup of hot milk. Drink just before bedtime. Old trick but it does work.

* Check your mattress and pillow- perhaps it is time to get a new one.

* Sleep with a pillow between your legs. Since I started with his I sleep so much better!

* Listen to relaxing music with the sound of the ocean or the wind. Relax.

* Make sure you aren't hungry not have over eaten. Try not to eat after 7pm. If you are hungry later have a light snack. I usually have a cup of hot cocoa with very little sugar.

If non of the above works then I would recommend contacting a sleeping expert or your Doctor.

Being a good wife

This is something most women struggle with everyday. How can you define a "Good wife"?

Is a good wife someone who does the dishes, cleans the house, do the laundry, take the kids to school, never complains, always look like she stepped out of a magazine for the 10 most beautiful women, bakes fresh bread everyday, always have supper on the table at the same time everyday, and most of all; never complains and never utter the word "tired"?

Is that possible? Of course it is possible but the real question is; is that woman happy?

I will never be that perfect woman who does all of the above without saying I am tired because being tired is natural, caring for your home is work!

 But- I can still be a good wife.

And a Blog was born - Welcome

Yet another blog in the wide wide blogosphere was born on a sunny day. It's name became WAHM Ramblings because its mom is a WAHM who rambles too much.

OK you want to know who I am? A little about Mrs Fay;

*No Mrs Fay is not my real name, but don't worry that doesn't make me less authentic.
* What you read on this blog is everyday life as I know it- no lies- no games- nothing hidden- only the truth. Except for my name that would be :)
*I am am just a normal mommy working from home in a normal town living a normal life.
*I am happily Married to Mr F and a Mom to Baby C born in late 2003.
*I live my life through His words and I am a very determined mother and proud of it when I do it through His ways.
* I am yet not thirty but almost as wise as a Lady of sixty.
* I have severe weaknesses to coffee, chips and chocolate. Please keep those dangerous things away from me unless you want to pay my membership fee at WW.
* Although I am weak for the above and always want to lose a few lbs here and there I do not struggle with my weight.
* I exercise regularly
* Baby C was born by Cesarean.
* The first thing Mr F gave me to show he cared about me was a Snickers bar. *Love him for that*

*Please do send me an email:* wahmramblings*@*gmail*.com (remove the *) Please do feel free to ramble with me in the comments! But don't even think about leaving nasty comments or send me swindling emails.*

Here you can take part of my ramblings of my everyday life which I hope will bring joy and happiness.

Oh and let me tell you that I do not take responsibility for any spelling errors or typos- they are all coffee related! I blame it on the coffee! And when nothing in my posts make sens- I blame it on the coffee. It could be a lack of it or an overdose :)
