Night Musings

When you tell people your child sleeps through the night your child will then stop sleeping through the night. 

I may or may not be speaking from personal experience. 

I may or may not have been up every night the last few weeks between 1:00 and 4:00ish.

Good times. 

I'm a 8-9 hours of sleep kinda girl. 

Less than that makes me cranky and ornery.  

Sorry Brian.  

And my co-workers. 

And the general population. 

But being up in the middle of the night does allow me plenty of time for random thinking....

  • Can I stretch $30 into getting me a new summer wardrobe? 
  • At what age is it appropriate for me to stop listening to rap music? 
  • Why do businesses use the letter "K" to replace words that begin with a C in their company name?  Is the Klassy Boutique really classy?
  • How many times is it acceptable to go into Target in a given week? When do the employees start to address you by  name?
  • Why on God's green earth will this child not go to sleep? 
  • What happened to Bachelorette Emily's teeth?
  • How long does it take to put in a inground pool?  Could I have it by next weekend? 
  • Do I have time to take a nap tomorrow afternoon? What about tomorrow night? What's the earliest I could be in bed by? 

At some point the little man starts snoring.  Daylight is breaking and I climb back into bed.  

Mentally establishing the number of times I can hit the snooze button before I get up.  

From this day out, I do solemnly swear to never, ever state that my child is a good sleeper.

The end.
