      The definition of “BURNOUT” according to Webster dictionary is the exhaustion of physical or emotional strength. I never felt burnout before, even in my school major examination or university days. In my final year, I had to do a thesis (as thick as a book), few days without sleep and yet have the energy to play tennis after it was completed.

      I truly felt the meaning of burnout when I had my son. He is the champ, who can get mummy defeated. He was not an easy child, he can wake up in the middle of the night a few times. He never sleeps for more than 5 hours since the day he was born until 2 years of age. I thought my nightmare would never end. I was so deprive of deep sleep and so is daddy. I remember one time where I wanted to give up, my body was weak, wanted to shutdown and yet I was with a crying baby who was so reluctant to sleep. He will just cling on to me and when I put him down, he cries. Finally I could put him to sleep at 4 am. He slept for 3 hours and he start to cry again. I even resort to cry it out method. Believe me he can cry for 1 hour and still continue. It never worked. Read all the books about training your child to sleep. Sad to say, it is all theory, may work on some child.

      Now he sleeps better, amazingly he learns how to sleep through the night after 2 years old. It was a test of patience for those 2 years of motherhood. God gave me strength to endure it and rely upon him for additional strength.

      Imagine how can one little fellow, so small in size conquer 2 adults. It can, believe me and it is your own flesh and blood.
