We asked you: What is the most stupid thing you’ve done while sleep-deprived? And your answers were brilliant, funny – and oh-so-familiar! Here are some of our favourites… How many have you done?
“Brushed my teeth with Savlon (it was next to the toothpaste)”
“Put cat biscuits in my daughter’s cereal bowl. She complained and I was about to snap when my son piped up, ‘Mum, they’re cat biscuits!'”
“I once went into a complete panic thinking my daughter wasn’t in the car when in fact the mirror we use to see her when driving had just fallen down”
“Got really confused when rubbing my work key fob on the side of my front door didn’t unlock it! And the same later when my car fob wouldn’t open it either”
“Dunked my bacon roll in coffee instead of ketchup”
“A shop assistant asked me my newborn’s name and I just stood staring at her because I couldn’t remember it”
“I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve forgotten to boil the kettle and put cold water into my cup”
“Carefully prepared lunch, then scraped it all into the bin as though we’d finished before I even put it on the table”
“Told the registrar the wrong name when we went to register our daughter’s birth. Luckily my husband was there!”
“Put my little girl’s lunchbox on the top of the toaster and then put it on. Burnt a big hole in it so off she went with a carrier bag”
“I put the kids’ laptop in the fridge instead of on charge”
“When my baby finally went down for a nap, I tried to take five minutes for myself with a bowl of cereal and a magazine – but managed to throw the bowl, milk and cornflakes down onto the sofa while keeping a careful hold of the mag!”
“I phoned my husband at work in floods of tears because I thought he was late and not coming home – when it was only 1.45pm”
“Decided to have more children!”
