The Story Behind Magical Sleep Fairy

Five Years of No Sleep

Hi, I'm Amy Wiebe, the woman behind Magical Sleep Fairy. My boys are very close in age - and the no-sleep started when I was pregnant with Max, my oldest. By the time Max was four, I had not slept in FIVE years. I used to be kinda cute and nice... but had become a grumpy and cranky woman with crow's feet. I digress... 🤣

However, I’m not joking about the sleep. It was constantly inconsistent… draining… horrible… and yes, it took a toll on my relationships, my motherhood experience, and my career.

I just couldn’t take not sleeping anymore. I came up with this idea of a sleep fairy because the best time that I got sleep was either when the tooth fairy was coming or when Santa was coming.

The sleep fairy worked the first night… dead serious! It actually worked…

Now, I didn’t sleep that night because I was shocked that the boys were sleeping and I kept getting up wondering why I wasn’t getting woken up by the boys.

I was shocked. SHOCKED!!! I HAD to share this with other moms because you also deserve a peaceful night's rest.

I also wanted to the book to be beautiful: a pretty book on our coffee table to share with other moms who are struggling with the same thing. Let’s be honest: no sleep means EVERYTHING is harder. EVERYTHING.

When I told my boys about the sleep fairy, of course they called me out on it and said that this was not true.

So I staged a conversation with my girlfriend where she brought up the sleep fairy, which made it seem real. I also told them that moms have to call the sleep fairy if they want help - that the sleep fairy doesn’t come to every single boy and girl. Olea goes where she is needed. I also had a friend pretend to be the sleep fairy when I called her so that the boys could see that this was actually a serious thing.

Imagination is a beautiful thing that brought me here, but honest to goodness it worked. That’s the most important thing.

Good luck, Mamas and Papas… xoxox
