I'm on a mission. I am going to find the fucker who coined the phrase "sleep like a baby" and slap the ever-lovin' shit out of him.

I spent the night at Bro and SIL house last night to give them a break with the baby. She has her days and nights confused and I remember what that was like. So, I thought I would be "Super-Auntie" and let them get a solid nights sleep. Baby was up every hour but would only "nip" at the bottle for a few minutes and fall back asleep. There was no getting her to eat any more than that. So of course she was up every half hour or so...her tummy never got filled up enough. At first I was ok with this. I understand she's tiny and can't tell time yet. But after the 3rd (or 4th) hour, I was just exhausted. Now I know why I had my kids when I was young. I'm too old for this shit. And I always thought old people needed less sleep. Maybe it means I'm not THAT old....yet.
