Up all night

And I don't mean the quickly-becoming-terrible tv show. I mean the sick baby = no sleep kind.

Pro: You find out if your spouse loves you

Con: You do it by sleep deprivation and liberal application of screaming and crying. Mostly by the child.

Pro: You catch up on all the movies you never saw in a theater because you have a child.

Con: There's something lost when faces are half an inch high and your theater is propped against an inert meatloaf of a sleeping, congested child.

Pro: You can eat whatever you want 'cause it's late..

Con: You choose ancient leftovers and bootleg Chinese Ramen...

Pro: Toddler Flails-a-lot is adorable when she sleeps.

Con: She intermittently flails like a tasered lumberjack. She's punched me in the eye three times so far.

Pro: The righteous glow of being there for your child.

Con: Feeling ill used by the most ridiculous sleeping positions anyone has ever been in ever. Really, the Christ on the Cross position where her head is on my knees, arms flung out into space and feet resting on my neck? What is that?!

Anyway, that's my current list. I'm off to go add to it. Happy 1am, everyone!

  1. I am sorry for your loss...of sleep. I'm next. The entire months of March and April most likely as 3am feedings of a newborn diminish me to a blathering idiot. Remember that? Feel better now?
    Love to your baby and you,

    1. Oddly enough, it does. Thanks for that. Nothing like remembering 3am feedings to put your life in perspective.
