Actually, "exhausted" isn’t a strong enough word.

Because of this, every parent has a story about a time they parented under the influence of extreme exhaustion.

For example, you might have changed your baby’s diaper and then put it in the fridge.


Or maybe your kids needed milk but you were too tired to get out of the car, so you went through the McDonalds drive thru for some single-serving cartons.

You might’ve announced it was “Cereal for Dinner Night” because you just couldn't deal with the kitchen.

It’s also possible that you dropped your kid off at school looking like a hot mess but were too tired to care.


Or even a hot mess dressed up as a hot mess for Halloween. Yikes.

So tell us, moms and dads: What did you do when you were seriously sleep deprived?
