#IWasSoTired Confessions | #WIN $1,000 Bed Bath & Beyond Bedroom Makeover [CLOSED]

#IWasSoTired Confessions | #WIN $1,000 Bed Bath & Beyond Bedroom Makeover
I have received information and materials from McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post. 
As a mother to four, I have had many (many) sleepless nights. Whether it’s due to the newborn honeymoon stage, a toddler teething, or even my older children with a bout of the stomach flu… it has happened to me more times than I can count.

Many people struggle to fall asleep or simply stay asleep night after night. As a result they feel physically, mentally and emotionally drained.

At times, an individual’s inability to sleep changes them. It impacts who they are, how they feel, and how they interact with the people they care about most.

It can also result in the occasional silly slip…like misplacing your daughter’s ballet shoes in the refrigerator or calling a co-worker by the wrong name.

In recognition that these silly things sometimes happen when you don’t get enough sleep, TYLENOL® PM is launching a social program that rewards consumers for sharing these #IWasSoTired confessions.

My #IWasSoTired Confession:

I have one moment in particular that I was incredibly tired from being up all night with one of the littles. My older kids were in the kitchen discussing lunch options when I made mention of chicken nuggets. In my mind it was quick, easy and I could possibly lay down for a quick snooze. I don’t remember what their objection was to my suggestion, but I do remember responding to them that they were “Picky Chicken”… of course meaning to say that they were picky children but mixing it up with the chicken I was suggesting. The roar of laughter from the kids was enough to snap me out of my sleepwalk and we all got a good laugh out of it. My littles are now 6 and 8 and my family still brings up “picky chicken” when someone is being picky about a food choice.

    SOunds like a fun campaign I can’t wait to see people’s responses.

  2. rochelle haynes says:

    This sounds great

  3. shelly peterson says:

    How fun! this would be great to win.

  4. Dawn Monzu says:

    What a GREAT idea! Anyone with children has spent at least one sleepless night (most likely, many more!). I am glad my kids are grown now! Naps are amazing! haha

  5. Sarah L says:

    Does today count? Very little sleep last night, but haven’t done anything silly so far.

  6. Sue E says:

    I either sleep soundly or not at all – I have no happy medium!! I have said I have forgotten things when I haven’t!! The other day, my husband was talking to me about our one granddaughter. I said that I missed her & wished that she was here so that I could hug her. My husband replied, “Honey, she is asleep on your lap!” DUH!!!

  7. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I can imagine there will be some great videos this one is cute. What is this sleep they speak of!

  8. Amanda Alvarado says:

    Sleep? What is that?? I don’t even have a baby anymore to blame it on! LOL I can’t wait to see some of these pics and videos!

  9. Cheryl says:

    I’m definitely tired all the time. I prefer entering random sweepstakes though.

  10. Lisa Brown says:

    nice program; getting enough rest is challenging.

  11. I require a certain of sleep (at least 8hrs per night) or I am a total grump and meanie the next morning. I am sure I could think of some not so flattering confessions, especially if it meant maybe winning that awesome bedroom makeover prize!

  12. Maria C says:

    Thanks for sharing. Did not know anything about this contest. I will enter for sure

  13. Lesley F says:

    I bet there are some funny stories that will be posted

  14. Lesley F says:

    I liked the trailer

    • Lesley F says:

      posted on the wrong comment section

  15. Nicole Dziedzic says:

    Very cute story! The Picky Chicken is quite funny. I remember one time I was so tired and barely got any sleep and once I finally did, I swear it felt like I just fell asleep, and my husband was trying to wake me up, and I said, “I don’t want to go to school.” I guess it cane from something from the kids previously that day. But I meant to say that I did not want to go to work.

  16. Nothing can make you tired like a new baby… when my son was born, I felt like a zombie!

  17. David Fultner says:

    This makes a lot of sense. I like the video.

  18. courtney b says:

    coming from someone whos tired ALL THE TIME, I gotta enter this contest.

    thank you for sharing!!!

  19. Elena says:

    I would love to have a bedroom makeover

  20. Holly Thomas says:

    I can so relate to this.

  21. Amie says:

    I can relate completely as well! I have so many “I was so tired” moments that I wouldn’t even know which one to choose.

  22. Cynthia C says:

    I remember being tired when the kids were small. I wish I could enter the giveaway, but I don’t do Instagram 🙁

  23. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I know I have been so tired that I poured orange juice in my cereal before. It was pretty gross to say the least!

  24. Karen Glatt says:

    I remember being tired on so many occasions when I did not get enough sleep! I think this would be a great prize to win! I will have to check out entering on Instagram.

  25. Sounds like fun. I have many sleepless nights. And I haven’t had any kids around for a long time so I can’t blame it on that

  26. Betsy Barnes says:

    This sounds like a fun campaign. I bet the responses will be fun to read too! 🙂

  27. Rosanne says:

    I would like to enter it but I haven’t figured out how to use Instagram and add the hashtags

  28. Dana Rodriguez says:

    What a great contest! I don’t use Instagram but what a nice prize.I don’t get much sleep either.

  29. Birdiebee says:

    I must do embarrassing things every day as I never sleep more than 1 hour a night. I did notice as I walk to the mailbox the other morning in my pj’s that I had put them on inside out. I sometimes wear two different shoes after having sleepless nights.

  30. Richard Hicks says:

    Going to be a lot of interesting confessions!

  31. I can’t remember doing anything embarrassing after having a sleepless night. I have had many over the last couple of years due to almost no discs left in my lower back, osteoarthritis and tons of pain medication that really hasn’t helped no matter what the docs have tried.

  32. Sandy Cain says:

    This looks like fun I KNOW I have made a fool of myself and done really embarrassing things after too much sleep deprivation. OMG!

  33. dina s says:

    with a new grandbaby, this is so true

  34. Lesley F says:

    Should be interesting reading what people post

  35. rochelle haynes says:

    This is so true with a newborn

  36. Sandra Watts says:

    I love this. I have done funny things and my husband too. Sleep deprivation does some messed up things to ya.

  37. Marti Tabora says:

    I really love this, I entered and I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed.

  38. Keara B. says:

    These are so fun to read and they make me feel more normal!! Sleep deprivation is the worst. I recently drove my older daughter to preschool on a non-preschool day because I was so tired. :/

  39. Karen Glatt says:

    I think that this is an awesome contest to win a bedroom makeover, and my room needs it! I bet the responses are funny!

  40. I would enjoy reading these! I have been there. I worked on a job where I drove up to 12 hours a day, and once on the 4th day in a row, I was zonked, and yelled at my kids for almost nothing. They started laughing hysterically. I snapped at them and asked what was so funny, they said I was yelling at them with a smile plastered on my face.

  41. I entered! Thanks so much!

  42. Francine Anchondo says:

    One time i was so tired in the morning I put salt instead of sugar in my coffee it was pretty gross but at least it woke me up after that lol.

  43. Richard Hicks says:

    Our fridge and microwave are next too each other. One morning I was still stired and not thinking opened microwave to put away something and only realizing once i did it.

  44. Dee Lafrenz says:

    When I was tired I called my hubby by my X’s name once, he did not hear that one, or if he did, he never recognized it. I never did that again.

  45. Kayte CookWatts says:

    The most embarrassing thing I did while sleepy is go to the grocery store with my shirt on backwards.

  46. Michelle Bartley says:

    I can relate to this but don’t think I’m creative enough to make a winning video!

  47. Robin W says:

    I would love to win…but I can’t honestly think of something embarrassing I have done. But I’m too tired to think right now. I’ll have to ask my husband.

  48. heather says:

    I can’t think of anything at the moment too tired.

  49. Ashley S says:

    I cannot think of an embarrassing moment which was caused by little to no sleep. This is a funny campaign, it really made me laugh!

  50. Richard Hicks says:

    I have put things into the fridge before realizing they dont belong there~!

  51. Cindy Merrill says:

    I would enter, but we don’t have a Smart phone for Instagram. I once opened a can of caviar and put it in my cats’ dishes by mistake early in the morning. I’m stil trying to live it down.

  52. Mary Happymommy says:

    When I’m extremely tired, I barely know what I’m doing.

  53. Nicole Dziedzic says:

    I sometimes struggle with shutting my mind down at night with everything going on it can be a struggle. Sometimes i find myself so tired during the day that it leaves me so unfunctional at times.

  54. courtney b says:

    I would love to win 🙂

    This seems like such a fun lil contest ! !

    xoxoxoxo

  55. Cynthia C says:

    I’ll bet some of the responses will be interesting to say the least!

  56. Christopher Sorel says:

    Funny contest but do not think would remember a just try to get out the house without waking anyone up

  57. Jennifer Rogers says:

    I remember so vividly the lack of sleep with my newborns! I was forever forgetting and losing things! Lack of sleep can be horrendous!

  58. Karen Glatt says:

    When I am so tired, I make a lot of mistakes and can not get my act together! this looks like a great contest!

  59. Penni says:

    What an interesting and entertaining campaign! It’s sure to bring together so many folks with sleep issues, and help them to feel more supported.

  60. Leela says:

    I miss sleep! After seven kids, i’ve learned to function without a lot of it.

  61. Amanda says:

    Would love to win. I don’t get much sleep either.

  62. Pamela Gurganus says:

    I’ve been watching and reading these confessions and some of them are hysterical! This is such a great campaign and a great giveaway opportunity. Thank you for the information and for sharing.

  63. Michele P says:

    I have had plenty of nights like this, and not just when the kids were young, I still get them! I don’t function well when extremely sleep deprived and have done and said many stupid things lol.

  64. Karen Glatt says:

    So many mistakes are made when a person is tired. I know that I messed up when I was tired all the time.

  65. Not getting enough sleep, does not end with small kids. I still get sleepless nights even with two teenagers:) I would love a bedroom makeover though!

  66. jenn says:

    I can really relate to this. I’ll have to take the time enter. I’ve done some doosies.

  67. Elena says:

    I don’t get enough sleep, so I feel tired all the time

  68. Lyndsey says:

    All of this is so true!

  69. Karen Glatt says:

    Thanks for sharing. Did not know anything about this contest. I think it is a great contest~

  70. Melissa S says:

    I definitely have problems when I am tired. I poured water into the coffee pot yesterday morning and never put the coffee pot back. 2 Issues there, no cup of coffee and a mess all over the counter and floor.

  71. Debbie Welchert says:

    I loved watching these. I was so tired once that I put the box of spaghetti in the refrigerator and called my grandchildren in to help me find it and they found it. To this day I still hear about putting the box of spaghetti in the refrigerator.

  72. Amy Orvin says:

    It would be a dream come true to win this.

  73. Betty says:

    Love the idea of this contest. How sweet to win something because something went so wrong

  74. June S. says:

    The video makes a lot of sense to me. The contest sounds like a great one!

  75. Rosie says:

    I walked right into the glass wall at the coffee shop located inside the building at the office – kaboom at full speed ahead going towards that needed morning coffee! Nothing damaged but my ego!

  76. Dandi D says:

    I remember being extremely tired when my son was a newborn, but I don’t have any funny stories to tell.

  77. David Fultner says:

    A very sweet pick. Good luck

  78. Heidi Embrey says:

    $1000..I would buy a new mattress and a flat screen tv 🙂 Thanks!

  79. Rosanne says:

    I love to sleep and when I’ve been sleep deprived become a different person

  80. laurie murley says:

    I lose a lot of sleep and it does do things to you during the day

  81. Rebecca Kellerman says:

    LOL Picky chicken! I definitely am so out of it when I don’t get enough sleep!

  82. Elisabeth says:

    I can relate to the brain fog from not getting enough sleep, it’s the worst!

  83. Sarah Oswald says:

    Thanks for sharing this awesome giveaway I will have to check it out I would love to win this!!!

  84. paula s says:

    Sounds fun! I wish I could figure out Instagram and Ill try to enter.

  85. I was so tired one time, and here is the funniest part, I gave my best haircut ever while sleep deprived. It wasn’t a very long career as a hair stylist, though. I was never very good.

  86. sheila ressel says:

    What a great contest! I’ve had many nights when I haven’t had enough sleep – it stinks!

  87. CR Williams says:

    I would love to enter this thanks for sharing.

  88. rochelle haynes says:

    Love to enter thanks for sharing

  89. Cynthia C says:

    I can relate. There were days when I felt like a zombie.

  90. G K says:

    I think we all have sleepless nights. I’ve had problems sleeping since I was a kid. I just can’t seem to unwind sometimes. On those days where I’ve gotten little sleep, I’ve definitely done some funny things. It’s a great idea to have people tell these embarrassing stories and get rewarded for it.

  91. Cynthia R says:

    I just saw the one about putting in wife’s contacts and the person doesn’t even wear contacts, lol.

  92. courtney b says:

    I totally understand this!!!

    and $1000 to bed bath and beyond would be amazing! 🙂 thanks! xoxoxoxo

  93. Sandy Weinstein says:

    great campaign, but dont have instagram. i have a lot of sleepless nights but it has to do with me being a nightowl, i inherited insomnia from my mother and i have neck and shoulder pain from a car accident so cant get comfortable at night. i have been so tired sometimes that i just forget things, put things in the fridge that dont belong there, etc.

  94. Adriane says:

    Fun campaign… but I’m too tired to make a video!

  95. Samantha Loughlin says:

    We suffer with so many sleepless nights anything would help

  96. Maria C says:

    would be nice to win this kind of contest one of these days, will be forever thankful! thanks for sharing

  97. Maria C says:

    such a huge help to someone in need of a bedroom makeover

  98. Sandy Weinstein says:

    love this, but no instagram. however, i have been so tired, have left food on the stove and woke up with burned bottom, i am not a good sleeper, have insomnia and i am in desperate need of a bedroom makeover, and new mattress.

  99. Anne says:

    Funny how little things like a slip of the tongue become part of a family’s lexicon. “Picky chicken” will always mean something to you and your kids, but like any good inside joke, no one outside your family will have a clue what you’re all smiling about. Thanks for sharing your cute story.

  100. Cindy Merrill says:

    This often happens to me when I’m too sleep to pay attention: Putting a heaping spoon of sugar instead of dried creamer in my coffee, very annoying.

  101. Dawn F says:

    I never get enough sleep. I’d love to enter this sweepstakes but I can’t bring myself to share a photo. 🙂 Look forward to seeing others posts though.

  102. It sounds great to not have to run around so tired anymore. Thanks for this creative contest.

  103. Karine Traverse says:

    I don’t know how many times I’ve put salt in my coffee half awake in the morning

  104. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    t his sounds like a fun campaign- to read the stories of other people and perhaps to participate in it too.

  105. Devin says:

    I’ve done things like pour juice into my cereal or coffee when I was too tired and kind of on auto pilot. Fun stuff 😛

  106. I can totally relate to the sleepless word fumbles…I just did it today after a exhausting night with my teething little one!

  107. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    So many real “winners” how could they possibly choose one to be “the best” ???

    Wish I’d known about this one before the 5/1/15 deadline: my whole life has been composed of “I was so tired that I…” moments….

  108. Min K says:

    “ends on May 1, 2015 “

  109. David Fultner says:

    We had this experience.

  110. Monica Kirkham says:

    Picky chicken! That’s funny! I’m a mom to 4 also, so I can definitely relate. My kids have a lot of laughs at my expense!

  111. Cynthia C says:

    Bet they get some really funny responses.

  112. Karen Glatt says:

    I would love to win this kind of contest-maybe one of these days! One of these days I will not be so sleepy in the mornings! thanks for sharing!

  113. Allison Swain says:

    What a cool campaign! Thank you for sharing this.

  114. Danielle M. says:

    A bedroom make over would be amazing!

  115. Sharon Rooney says:

    It is funny the mistakes that you make when you are tired. Love reading the posts that people are making forthe contest

  116. Sharon Rooney says:

    It is funny the mistakes that you make when you are tired. Love reading the posts that people are making for the contest

  117. courtney hennagir says:

    This is such a great campaign! I feel like I could fill a book with all of the crazy things I have done after very little sleep and with mommy brain!

  118. I was so tired from a sleepless night and got up early because of it, I slipped down some stairs.- not an entire flight but enough to make me realize no more walking downstairs without lights on

  119. Birdiebee says:

    Every night for the past 9 1/2 years has been sleepless for me. I have been to several doctors to no avail. I’ve tried medications, natural alternatives, a new bed, you name it but still no sleep.

  120. CR Williams says:

    I definitely identify with this post, I tend to get really tired.

  121. This sounds like a great and excellent campaign. Thanks for the information.

  122. shelly peterson says:

    what a great contest, I could use a bedroom make over.

  123. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    This campaign really shows how important sleep is to each person

  124. Anita L says:

    I can relate to loss of sleep, but it has nothing to do with having a baby at home. I guess menopause is to blame.

  125. Heather Hollands says:

    The contest is expired, but I have a friend whose husband was so tired that he brushed his teeth with her Vagisil. Eek!

  126. sarah hirsch says:

    It is definitely tiring having a newborn around the house! 🙂

  127. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    When I am sleep deprived (which is way too often) I tend to make really dumb mistakes ~ especially forgetting things (this always happens when we a leaving to go on a trip) and my response-time is way off (slow!) which I really notice when I have to drive (which I do all I can to avoid)

    Now that I’m older the worst is basically just falling asleep suddenly anywhere ~ which is dangerous: standing up I might suddenly just fall (usually, mercifully landing on my butt!) or if I’m at my desk I’ll invariably knock over a glass of water or cup of coffee. (I can’t tell you how many keyboards I had to replace over the years ~ now I just keep beverages a safe distance away as I can’t afford to replace the whole laptop!)

    Let me also add that I know from experience VERY FIRST HAND that Tylenol PM really works as a sleep aid as well as a pain-killer. The first time I took it – it literally knocked my socks off ~ not sure why since the added ingredient is essentially just an anti-histimine….)

    And finally, it goes without saying that I very much need a Bed, Bath & Beyond makeover ~ literally and figuratively!

  128. This would be so great to win. It also is great to learn how to not be so tired all the time.

  129. Lily Kwan says:

    This sweepstakes sounds very fun. Thanks for sharing!

  130. Richard Hicks says:

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I am sure a lot of people will participate including myself!

  131. Julie Lundstrom says:

    This so true. I remember many nights like this.

  132. This is such a great article. I am interested in getting a better night of sleep.

  133. I think this program will help in keeping us less tired. Thanks for sharing this important information.

  134. Elena says:

    I feel tired all the time. I don’t get enough sleep

  135. Cynthia C says:

    I guess I’m pretty lucky because I sleep very well.

  136. Sandy Weinstein says:

    i have insomnia badly. my mother had it as well. i find i cant find things or keep my thought process straight when i am tired and sleepy. i go into a room to get something and cant remember what i wanted, or i may put something in a safe place and then cant find it.

  137. Sandy Weinstein says:

    i find i cant think correctly or function when i have not slept. i have insomnia as well did my mother, so it is inherited. i cant concentrate or make sense when i am holding a conversation. it cant remember where i am driving and end up somewhere else.

  138. James Robert says:

    I sure could use this, especially being in process of remodeling mine

  139. Rebecca Kellerman says:

    I can relate to flubbing up due to lack of sleep. I bet the submissions will be so funny!

  140. Charlotte says:

    I have told the dogs to ‘be quiet’ when I was tired, as if they understand, hah.

  141. beth shepherd says:

    I remember many nights like that. It was a truly amazing time.

  142. Mary Beth Elderton says:

    Sleep is an all-or-nothing thing for me. A couple of nights ago, I was wide awake at 1 am. I put a coat of stain on a piece of furniture, baked mini meatloaves, set some cabbage to ferment, started the dishwasher, packed Hubz’ lunch—then got dressed to start the day. By the end of the day, I was gaga loopy.

  143. Kristyl says:

    I’m a sleepy chicken everyday!!!! Hahaha

  144. Kelli Wood says:

    I was so tired this week from my husband being gone for a week now on a business trip to London! All while I stayed home with the kid. Just myself and the 8 year old all day and night long! lol

  145. B.W. says:

    When you don’t get enough sleep, you feel like you’re drunk. It can actually be a hilarious situation, as long as it doesn’t become dangerous (it’s also always a fine line for me between sleep delirious and cranky).

  146. Francene Johnson says:

    I had to stop taking Ambien because I was having conversations and eating in my sleep lol

  147. Wendy Jabkowski says:

    This is a great contest, I’m not sure how I will pick just one moment LOL.

  148. Julie Lundstrom says:

    I have troubles sleeping. I wonder if this would help me get a good nights sleep.

  149. Rosanne Morrison says:

    I was quite late picking my son up from a sports practice from oversleeping

  150. Karen Propes says:

    I have those sleepless night also. I have MS and I go to sleep and wake up and just can’t get back to sleep. When I’m very tired I have been known to bunp into a few walls when I get up. It goes back to the days when my Mom said don’t run with scissors -walking sleepy can be dangerous also, you must always look out for kids, toys and pets.

  151. Joey Wright says:

    Oh i have quite a few moments of my wife and I! Thanks for sharing.

  152. Regina Wright says:

    I just realized this contest is no longer active. I still went searching for the hashtags. I’ve had some funny moments!!

  153. Nia says:

    I was so tired I filled a bottle with milk for my son before I put the drop in bottle liner in! Lol. Milk all over the counter and a hungry baby

  154. Richard Hicks says:

    Most days I am tired. LOL

  155. Barbara Montag says:

    I have difficulty getting a full night’s sleep also.
    A bedroom makeover would be so much fun!

  156. Sarah Matos says:

    Sleep is still non existent and my girls are 6 and 9! I may never remember a good nights sleep!

  157. CR Williams says:

    I can’t really think of anything. I never had a problem with sleepless nights. I always get a goodnights rest.

  158. Karen Propes says:

    I really need more sleep, but when I don’t; I will bump into walls and feel off balanced. When I was young, I would sleep walk. The doctor told my parents that it was because I didn’t get enough sleep. But the one of the worse things was the morning my Dad told me that I was up studying at the kitchen table the night before. I asked him why didn’t he wake me up, he replied: ” Well you were drinking milk and since you don’t like milk, I thought it would be good for you”.

  159. George Walters says:

    This is an interesting social experiment!
    Unfortunately, I can’t exactly contribute because I almost always get a good night’s rest.

  160. Jaclyn Reynolds says:

    I’ve haven’t been a good sleeper since having children, I’m always on alert. I take melatonin to get some added quality zzzz’s. I won’t drive if I don’t feel rested. It’s hard to function on little to no sleep.

  161. Darla Peduzzi says:

    This sounds like such fun. I’m sure the responses will be interesting.

  162. Dawn Monzu says:

    Well…I’m sure I did many things when my kids were little, but I can’t think of anything except I would just let my kids come sleep with me! I was way too tired to fight with them, so they all ended up in my bed by the morning!

  163. I am glad that I haven’t got a problem going to sleep. I would not want to have the problem.

  164. It is great to not be so tired. My heart goes out.

  165. I am glad this helps to those who have this problem. That is nice.

  166. Margot C says:

    How cute is that! My mother used to always say ‘nosey parker’ if we were being obnoxiously inquisitive. I never knew what it came from and now I can’t ask her. Maybe it was something like that.

  167. leisl gering says:

    What a funny post. We have some picky chickens around here too.

  168. Susan Moseley says:

    Nice giveaway

  169. Richard Hicks says:

    Yes, babies can cause you to be a zombie the next day without much sleep

  170. Sandra Watts says:

    This was fun! I entered it a while back. Good luck!

  171. lissa crane says:

    Recently, a few months after I had my son, I made myself a cup of coffee and forgot to put a mug under the spout and it spilled all over the place! That is the funniest thing I have ever done when I was tired!

  172. Stephanie Phelps says:

    I have done so many things that were silly when I have not had enough sleep. One was I was looking for my glasses all over the place in a frantic mode when my son goes mom they are already on your face!

  173. Sarah Matos says:

    Still no sleep and my girls are 6 and 9!

  174. Tiffany M. R. says:

    I cant wait to read some of the stories. I know I cant think straight when Im tired!

  175. Richard Hicks says:

    I think every parent can relate to this

  176. Barbara Montag says:

    I was once so tired I fell asleep in my chair!
    thanks for a great post

  177. Amy Z. says:

    When I haven’t had much sleep I’m usually quite forgetful and clumsy!

  178. Elena says:

    I would love to be able to sleep more

  179. Jen F says:

    This sounds like a really nice campaign that they have going on. I loved reading some of the responses! It sounds like many of us are in the same boat when we are overtired!

  180. Margaret Smith says:

    The silliest thing that I’ve done with lack of sleep is putting juice in my tea instead of milk.

  181. Cynthia C says:

    Reading the responses would be fun. I’ll bet they get some good ones.

  182. Julie Lundstrom says:

    I have troubles sleeping. I can’t shut off my brain from thinking about things.

  183. Pam Halligan says:

    I have problems sleeping due to chronic pain.

  184. dari says:

    Aww how touching thanks for sharing your story.

  185. Jessica Lodge says:

    I love stories that the kids remember for years to come. I have mixed up my words while in a tired stoop on more than one occasion.

  186. rochelle haynes says:

    Thanks for sharing this info

  187. hannah says:

    I completely understand what you’re saying. When I’ve had little to no sleep, I mix up words constantly. I tend to say the word that rhymes with the word I want to say. Like say ‘fat’ instead of ‘ cat’. It is so annoying!

  188. Rosanne says:

    I’ve lost my temper with many people after many sleepless nights

  189. Tarah says:

    I’ve put shoes that didn’t match and went to work!

  190. Richard Hicks says:

    They can try your patience at times

  191. timothy says:

    I was so tired I once poured orange juice in everyone’s cereal instead of milk

  192. Hahaha I have 4 as well and can so relate. Mine are grown now and I’m on grandchildren, but my best (worst) was telling my youngest “When I was your mother” meaning of course, when she was little and needed my parenting – she’s 22 now and expecting her first. She’ll get it soon enough. 😉

    We still laugh about it. Good luck, hope you win.

  193. Betsy Rubendall Barnes says:

    Sounds like a fun campaign! I have had a lot of silly mess ups after being so tired. One was I forgot to put a filter in the coffee maker one morning, it was messy! 🙂

  194. DailyWoman (Lacey) says:

    I am going to enter this, just have to remember to take a picture of the crazy stuff I do when I am tired. It has been quite a few things.

  195. June S. says:

    I once tried to put the box of cereal in the fridge and the gallon of milk on top of the fridge. I was having one of those mornings!

  196. CR Williams says:

    I would love to win this for Christmas!

  197. Tamra Phelps says:

    I can relate to sleepless nights. I’ve had insomnia since I was a kid & sometimes it gets so exhausting!

  198. Rosanne says:

    I’ve been so sleep deprived I’ve practically forgotten my name on the phone

  199. Richard Hicks says:

    Being so tired is no fun

  200. Amy Z. says:

    I’m sure there will be some great stories! When I’m tired I make a lot of silly mistakes.

  201. Sandy Weinstein says:

    i have had many sleepless nights b/c i have insomnia….i have put my dog’s goats milk in my coffee and visa versa. have put things in the fridge that did not belong there. sometimes i am so tired, i get sick…

  202. Linda Stewart says:

    I spent years raising my children as a single parent. Just when I thought I would start having “ME” time and life would slow down a little bit, I was tossed into being a single grandparent, raising her grandchildren. My oldest daughter didn’t sleep through the night until she was almost 16 months old. My youngest was a total 180 so I thought I had the sleep thing figured out! When I took my oldest grandson home from the hospital, of course I figured it would be a breeze since I’d already raised my daughters. BOY was I fooled! It was horrific. Peyton slept but only until it was bedtime and the only one who could console him was his nanny. It was as if Mama wasn’t anywhere to be found, he wanted Nanny (8 years later and it’s still the same!). I went through this process with two more grandsons. None of the three boys wanted their mama’s … they wanted their nanny! I am eight, almost nine years into raising grandchildren and realize that I’m too old for this!! The boys are 8, 6, & 5 … 13 year … 13 years … 13 years … then hopefully I’ll get that “ME” time 🙂

  203. Elena says:

    I need new mattress. I don’t sleep good at night

  204. Tamra Phelps says:

    I’ve had trouble sleeping since I was a kid. I don’t know if I’m just an insomniac or what, but it would be great to sleep better!

  205. Marti Tabora says:

    This is really fun, I don’t think I have ever gotten enough sleep.

  206. Pam H. says:

    I was so tired once I left my coffee in the roof of my car and drove away.

  207. Alona Y says:

    This will be comedy gold to read all of the responses! Just the other day I was getting so frustrated that I couldn’t find my glasses, and they were right on top of my head!

  208. Leigh Anne Borders says:

    I think this will be a great campaign. Being tired is something for the dogs;) I go twenty four seven; however, when it catches up with me–oh goodness!

  209. I would love to win this considering the amount of remodeling I am doing this year on my home. Thank you for the information on this great and fine giveaway.

  210. Melissa Allison says:

    I remember when I was the mom of 3 small children – ages 3 and under! I went through the house, to the kitchen. I had a dirty diaper in one hand, and a bottle in the other. My intentions were to throw away the diaper and place the bottle in the refrigerator. However, my sleep deprived brain had other plans, and the diaper ended up in the fridge and the bottle went in the trash. When I went to retrieve the bottle from the fridge later that day – I found the massive stench of a dirty diaper instead! Oh, how I don’t miss those days! 🙂

  211. Angela Saver says:

    Thanks for sharing this with us! I would love to win this to make over our bedroom!

  212. Tamra Phelps says:

    As someone who has had insomnia off & on since childhood, I know how hard it is to get a good night’s sleep. Anything that helps is fine by me.

  213. Jennifer Boehme says:

    I could tell them a story, or many. 3 hour nights are so hard to function with. A new bedroom, I could only wish it helped.

  214. Cynthia C says:

    I wish it wasn’t on instagram because I don’t have it 🙁

  215. Eileen Richter says:

    with 6, I’ve had far too many TOO TIRED stories, especially when the dad always fakes sleep to avoid that dreaded night time crAzIneSS! LOL. yeah, that happened. The lost sleep and craziness is always what puts me in brain drain. Like many others, I tumble through my kids names to get them right. Even calling the boys names the GIRLS names. I have gone too far when calling the kids the dog’s name. That is SO tired!

  216. Dandi D says:

    I have a newborn, so I certainly am not getting enough sleep.

  217. Sandy Weinstein says:

    i have never had human kids so i dont really know how tired women can be, i have had 4 legged kids that i have had to stay up with all nite as well as staying all nite with my mother many times. it takes a toll on your body. sometimes you feel like you cant even function anymore but then you know you have to …there were many times when i stayed up over 36 hrs with my mother just coming home to shower and let my dog out…

  218. Debbie Welchert says:

    I can remember not so long ago that I lost the box of spaghetti and had all of my grandchildren looking for it in the kitchen. I asked them to get me something out of the refrigerator and there it was. I’m telling you, lack of sleep can make you do a lot of weird things….

  219. laurie murley says:

    wow what a great giveaway, I need a new mattress and other things

  220. Tamra Phelps says:

    I’ve never slept well, so I can relate. I’ve fallen asleep in the middle of board games, even while standing up, lol. (Leaning against a wall, but guess what? You still fall down!)

  221. I like the comments about the makeover. I hop all has gone well since.

  222. Jennifer Boehme says:

    I know all about the I was so tired confessions. I have troubles daily. 3 hours of sleep is not enough. I like someone will have a chance for a bedroom makeover, it would help them.

  223. Sarah Brittingham says:

    I have a million of these examples. One of the worst was when I meant to put cinnamon on my oatmeal, but instead put cumin. A lot of cumin. It was a shocking, wake me up when I took a bite moment. I have also dumped milk into the coffee maker. I have also dumped the cat’s food into his water bowl. The list goes on and on!

  224. David Fultner says:

    Wow this would go a long ways.

  225. Susan Smith says:

    Sounds like a fun contest. I remember being so tired one morning I forgot to put my coffee mug under my Keurig and coffee went everywhere.

  226. I would love to not be so tired anymore. This looks really great.

  227. Sue E says:

    We own a posture pedic bed that goes up and down, etc. I couldn’t sleep any where but my Lazy Boy chair until I got this bed!! It was well worth the money and there is a 20 year warranty on the mattress. PLUS I can’t enter this sweepstakes, because I cannot join Instagram!!!

  228. Cami v says:

    How fun. Looks like a great contest.. I have so many stories from me being tired lol

  229. Hanna says:

    Cute idea! #iwassotired seems like my personal life motto.

  230. Jennifer Boehme says:

    A new bedroom makeover would be nice to help with the sleep issues. God knows I have them too.

  231. Jaclyn Reynolds says:

    Just looking like a zombie after not sleeping 🙂 I go out in sunglasses so no one can tell how tired I am!

  232. Laura Grace Andry says:

    Picky Chicken is pretty funny and is something my children would have giggled over too. When I am too tired I usually just grunt a lot instead of forming words. It is like trying to decipher an animal when I talk before my coffee.

  233. Erin Ellis says:

    I have gone out with my shirt on inside out because I was so tired!

  234. Angela Mason says:

    One night after being sleep deprived with my newborn(about a week). i was listening to her fuss and got her out of her crib. I was rocking her and she just keep on fussing. It was dark and I felt something on the side of her face, I pulled at it and could not remove it, so I went and turned on the light just to discover I was pulling on her ear. Happy Holidays to all!

  235. kara kudro says:

    What a great campaign!!!! being a mom of young kids means I live tired, one morning I realized I had actually put my cordless phone in the refrigerator:)

  236. Marina Felan says:

    This would be absolutely amazing, a new bedroom makeover would be a huge relief for me, I get plenty of sleepless nights with a 3year old who thinks Mom’s bed is all his&&a 7 year old who cries due to growing pains at night! My sleepless nights make me look so unattractive that Zombies aren’t so bad. Lol

  237. Cami v says:

    My hubs surprised me with a new bed last year but it is so uncomfortable. This one looks nice and comfortable

  238. Barbara Montag says:

    Sometimes we can get so tired we almost fall asleep standing!
    And enough sleep is so important.

  239. I think I’ve hd a hard time sleeping ever since I had kids, LOL. I talk funny when I don’t get enough slepp.

  240. courtney b says:

    I never sleep with two toddlers but sleep is so important!!

    thank you !:) xoxo

  241. Eileen Richter says:

    I cannot even go there! With 6 kids and brain fog, long work hours when I was working, nagging about their rooms and mixing up their names…even calling them the DOG’s name (not cool when your boys are called Tiffany or Libby. lol), and being a bit hard of hearing early in life…there are a ton of “what I heard” vs “what was really said. Some tired and crazy moments are just too too funny!

  242. June S. says:

    I wore two different shoes to work one day a few years ago. I got a lot of laughs from people that day for sure.

  243. laurie murley says:

    wow wish I had know about it before it closed, great info

  244. Andrina Goetz says:

    After a sleepless night, I completely lost track of the days. I went to work on Saturday. I was embarrassed.

  245. Amy Orvin says:

    I hate losing sleep. I can’t even function the next day and sometimes I cry.

  246. I think it would be nice to not be tired for a change.

  247. im tired of beingg tired lol

  248. courtney b says:

    if I don’t get 8 hours of sleep a day im a total grouch!

    so I need my beauty sleep!

  249. Katy says:

    That is so funny! I did something crazy during my daughter’s first year when I came home from the grocery store and put the lasagna in the laundry room cabinet and the laundry detergent in the freezer. I still don’t even know how I fit the detergent bottle in our packed freezer, or what my thoughts were when I had to move everything.

    Ahh, motherhood!

  250. patricia delgado says:

    The motto in our house between my husband and I is “we’ll sleep when we’re dead”

  251. Hardly slept

  252. Stephanie Larison says:

    So many people can relate! I’m so tired right now with having a toddler and being pregnant again, this one was a total surprise. It’ll be interesting…and tiring having 2 under 2.

  253. I like Bed Bath & Beyond a lot. I wish I would have seen this before it closed.

  254. steve weber says:

    nice program; getting enough rest is challenging.

  255. Karen Glatt says:

    I remember being tired on so many occasions when I did not get enough sleep This is really a nice program!

  256. Elena says:

    I would love to get more sleep. I had sleep issues for the last year

  257. Sandy Weinstein says:

    i dont have kids, just 3 dogs. i have never been a very sound sleeper though. neither was my mother. i have insomnia. sometimes i am so tired i cant sleep

  258. Terri Irvin says:

    I started exercising more and I noticed I slept much better. Also a glass of red wine at the end of the day helps too!

  259. Terri S. says:

    Your “Picky Chicken” confession is so funny. When I don’t get enough sleep I get tongue tied too. I also forget what day it is and what my schedule was going to be. I feel like my brain is in a deep fog or in slow motion.

  260. Lisa Brown says:

    I get fatigued easily these days from life. A nap helps but a lot of the time is just not enough. Your story was funny, I enjoyed reading it.

  261. Karen Glatt says:

    Getting enough sleep when their is a baby in the house is so tired. I remember being so tired and not being able to get out of bed. I got help though!

  262. Kasee Johnson says:

    For 1 year, I had custody of my sister’s 3 children as well as my own 4 kids. I was so short on sleep that I honestly don’t remember much about the day-to-day dealings!

  263. Dawn Monzu says:

    I think at one time or another every person has some problems with sleeping. I am having a problem staying asleep right now! I remember when my kids were little though! Oh boy…what I wouldn’t have done for sleep back then! haha God bless everyone!

  264. Holly Thomas says:

    went out in public with my sleep mask on top of my head!

  265. Nichole Patrick says:

    Just this morning, I attempted to put my creamer into a cup that I thought already had coffee in it but actually, I never pushed the brew button.

  266. marie wolk says:

    would love to win this & jus filled one out for a nextbook!!!

  267. Darla Peduzzi says:

    I can definitely relate. I can’t remember the silly things I did when my daughter was little, but with my little grandson, some days I feel so tired that I could fall asleep standing up. Thank goodness for good coffee.

  268. It is nice when you do not have to be so tired all of the time. Pain sure doesn’t help the situation, so this is very good.

  269. Sandy Weinstein says:

    i am always tired. i wake up tired. i have insomnia that i got from my mom. i have never been a good sleeper. i have tried the Tylenol sleep before and it was okay, it did help a little.

  270. Sue E says:

    I couldn’t sleep until we bought our posture-pedic bed. It goes up and down and has a memory foam mattress. Plus if I need to I take Melatonin. I am really a zombie and more when I don’t get enough sleep!

  271. courtney b says:

    I love bed bath and beyond- they have the best vacuum cleaners at affordable prices!

    thanks!xoxo

  272. Laurajj says:

    Oh so funny on the ballet shoes! 🙂 I have not done any too funny…..but I remember putting the peanut butter in the fridge one time.

  273. Betty B. says:

    I’ve done some pretty funny things while being sleep deprived also. Like putting ice cream in the fridge, juice in the cabinet and my toothbrush in the garbage.

  274. Barbara says:

    I have a lot of trouble sleeping so I’m sure I have many embarrassing stories, so many that they’re just everyday things. The one that sticks out is that once I was so tired I forgot it was a weekday and my son was in preschool. The teacher called me to remind me (I was always early and when she didn’t see me she was worried – and this was a church- based preschool and I’d known the teachers for 15+ years).

  275. Oh, the stories I could tell – I think all parents can.

  276. I wish I would have been on time with the giveaway. My bedroom could use a makeover really bad.

  277. rochelle haynes says:

    Thanks for sharing

  278. Cynthia C says:

    Thanks for the post.

  279. Jessica says:

    After working a night shift I took a little nap then went to have dinner with my parents and kids. I was so tired I fell asleep at the table!

  280. Michelle J. says:

    I tried to nurse the toddler when he was crying instead of the baby.

  281. Pam H. says:

    After a sleepless night, I have gone into the office wearing two different shoes.

  282. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I bet this was fun to read the responses. I hate I missed this!

  283. Terri S. says:

    I missed the 5/1/16 deadline for this but enjoyed reading your funny “I was so tired confession” with picky chicken. I can relate to this after having many sleepless nights when my kids were little. It was like trying to run a car on empty – I could not get going and my brain was in a fog.

  284. Kristina Potter says:

    When I’m tired, I seriously act drunk. I remember those nights where I got no sleep. I could barely talk let alone get anything done at home.. The kids ruled from newborn to almost two.. I miss those days but I’m also glad it has past.. LOL I enjoy my sleep now!!

  285. Debbie Welchert says:

    Sounds like this would be fun to do. I can remember loosing a box of spaghetti and having all my grandchildren looking for it and they finally found it in the refrigerator. I don’t remember putting it in there, but there is was. Crazy….

  286. Cheryl says:

    I don’t get enough sleep too often.

  287. Marti Tabora says:

    It’s too bad this is already over. I know I hate it when I don’t get enough sleep, it can really be hard to try and get through the day when you’re so tired.
