I have never valued sleep as much as I do now that I am a mom. I always thought of it as a ‘nice to have’ vs a ‘must have’. It was something I could have a little or a lot of but either way, I would get by fine and it would all work out.
Jokes on me. That doesn’t fly now that I have a kid to take care of every day.
I learned quickly that getting enough sleep is actually THE most important thing every single day.
