When it comes to parenting, nothing is ever guaranteed to be easy, but getting the kids to bed on time can be especially exhausting. It’s, like, notoriously one of the most annoying things about having kids. Which makes sense because hey, remember all the times we were kids and desperately wanted to stay up late watching TV and running around our rooms screaming? Yeah, parenting basically guarantees you’ll deal with that at some point.

And this is exactly the dilemma that Bunmi Laditan, the creator of Honest Toddler, explores in her Facebook post this past Wednesday, where she opens up about treasuring the time when her kids finally go to sleep — at least, of course, until one of them wakes back up.

In her post, which now has 1,800 shares and 17,000 likes, Laditan writes:

Numerous parents, both mothers and fathers, have commented on the post and expressed how similarly they feel, and how grateful they are for Laditan’s honesty.

Whether or not you’re a parent yourself, it’s easy to understand how exhausting it can feel when your world doesn’t revolve just around your own wants and needs. Still, as Laditan explains in her post, “Whether he wakes up 8 hours from now or in 30 minutes, I’ll meet him where he is,” she wrote. “After all, that’s what coffee is for.” Anyone want to nominate Laditan for a Mom of the Year award?
