....You put the teabag in the mug, stand by the kettle waiting for it to boil.... and realise you haven't actually switched it on!! Stood bleary-eyed for 5 whole minutes before I realised.

.......You fall asleep playing tents with your 4 yr old on the sitting room floor. dial a number, it rings and you forget who you're ringing (does anyone else do this, I do it all the time!)

I used to look longingly into the cot and wonder (seriously) if it would take my weight!

when you take your son to bed and HE reads his story to YOU, while you quietly doze z. .z.z.

You fall asleep at the cinema with your kids and they have to wake you up at the end and tell you what happened.

You only realise at the end of the day that you've put both your bra and knickers on inside out

When you stand in Tesco dithering for 15 minutes over pork or chicken!

You stick on a video for them, and put them in front of it with a selection of their favourite 'treats' just so you can get your head down for an hour - and then put on another video when the first one finishes

A while ago, I was so tired in work , that I went into the toilets, put the seat down, set my phone alarm for 10 minutes, and went into a sleep/doze

Felt great afterwards

LGJ - fantastic

You suggest playing Sleeping Beauty with dd - as long as you get to be Beauty - you then lie on the floor with your eyes shut for as long as possible and make dd be the handsome prince several times over. (did this last night)

you know you are tired when you are driving and indicate to go round the bend in the road...

When you can't even walk in a straight line, trip over your own feet and your 21 month old says 'mummies drunk'.

vicdubya Fri 24-Jun-05 21:35:26

lol NP I have done that recently....

Tipex, psml....

Just going through a fairly non-tired phase...just to make you all jealous, ds has been sleeping really WELL in this heat.

vicdubya Fri 24-Jun-05 21:35:55

You're asleep and you dream about being tired...

... You learn the art of leaving your bed and peeing in the loo without actually opening your eyes.

... Last week I was making my breakfast and calmly sliced a banana into my cup of tea.

When you soothe ds by stroking him gently while you're still asleep, only to have dh wake up wondering why you're stroking him in the middle of the night. (ds was in his cot in his room in case you're wondering.)

Nightynight Sat 25-Jun-05 12:06:43 just realised that you shouted "F*ck off!" at a fly that flew into the fridge
