Did I mention to you guys that Piper got ear tubes a little over a month ago? Seriously, my life is a tornado and I can’t remember what pieces of furniture land on the blog and what doesn’t.

So . . . after about 3.4 billion ear infection, little Pips got ear tubes at the beginning of June. We really thought that that was going to be life changing. That’s what everyone told us. That the crying in the middle of the night would stop . . . . but it didn’t.

You guys.

She went back to nursing in the middle of the night. She’s 15 months old. This is absolute insanity. It’s like she’s a newborn again.

So we went back to the ENT this past week and thank god she didn’t just write me off as a crazy mom. She believed me that life feels insane because Piper won’t sleep . . . or really eat. You guys. A toddler who doesn’t sleep and doesn’t want to eat makes for a tired, cranky, and hangry baby. It’s ugly up in here.

So they did a scope (i.e. we tortured her by sticking a camera down her nose) on little Piper and they found out that she has a chronic infection. And suddenly the reason she’s been such a hot little mess made sense. She was put on antibiotics and she is sleeping just a teeeeeeenie tiny bit better, but she seems a little happier! Hooray for small victories and here’s hoping it continues.

Why am I sharing all of this with you instead of some hilarious story? Because I am literally so tired from life right now that it’s just a good time to be real. And there’s nothing else my brain can come up with.

Lol!

What’s easier than trying to figure out why a one year old is reverting back to newborn behavior?

These Root Beer Float No Bake Cheesecake Bars!! They are just a few ingredients, easy to make, and taste like a delicious root beer float without turning on your oven! Winning!

    I remember the tonsillectomy/adenoids removed/tubes put in period of time for my son. It really blew at the time, no doubt. But it passed eventually, and things are fine. Still, that doesn’t help you when you’re up nursing at night and everyone is sick and exhausted.
    Pulling these out of your tired brain is pretty impressive! Very original. You did good!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Ugh, it is the worst! We went through it with the older two also, so at least we know what’s what.

  2. Melissa says

    So sorry for you and your poor baby in pain! I totally understand about all the doctor’s appointments and scopes and the no sleeping! I hope her infection clears up and everybody gets better soon! Along with the tired mommy who still manages to make a delicious root beer dessert :)

    • Lisa Longley says

      Awww, thanks so much Melissa!

  3. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says

    I’m so sorry about the yucky sleep. That’s the worst! And poor Piper!!! And you!! Sending hugs…so send me some cheesecake bars okay?

      Hahahaha! Thanks Dorothy!

  4. Joan Hayes says

    Awww, I hope Piper feels better soon, that’s no fun! No fun for you guys either, I’m so sorry! Hopefully you can catch up on some sleep very soon! You should know these look amazing though, I LOVE root beer, and root beer flavored things! Seriously, these are great and I will have to make them. Hang in there!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Aww, thanks so much Joan!

  5. tanya says

    Awe Lisa, I’m so sorry!! There is nothing worse than a baby that doesn’t sleep; I feel for you. But hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that you will get caught up and feeling really good about life! You are amazing, in all you chaos you share a total kick ass dessert! You are my hero.

  6. christine says

    where can i find root beer concentrate?

    • Lisa Longley says

      You can find it in the spice aisle near the vanilla extract

  7. Julianne @ Beyond Frosting says

    I don’t have much else to offer other than I’m sorry! I know when I am a sleep hungry mess, I am no fun to deal with either. On the other hand, these bars are awesomeness!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Isn’t it so true Julianne?? Tired hungry Lisa is a really ugly site! I should really be more patient with Piper . . . I mean she does get her genes from me, lol :)

  8. Trish - Mom On Timeout says

    I wish I lived closer so I could babysit for you…and also so I could sneak one of these bars! They are RIGHT up my alley! Pinning!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I mean, I wish we lived closer too, but mainly just so I can hang out with you, lol! ;)

  9. Dani says

    Hang in there. The cheesecake bars will help too.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thank you Dani!

  10. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says

    Although I am a huge root beer fanatic, I am still not a big root beer float fan. I prefer my root beer in it’s wholesome form. That is, unless it’s baked into something and then I’m all over it like these bars!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I hope you love them Erin!
