There comes a point in parenting when you face a harsh realization and think to yourself “What have I done?” Generally, this is around 2:30 a.m. on a work night.
While the rest of the world is ‘sleeping like a baby’, your baby is screaming bloody murder. You change their diaper, feed them, rock back to sleep, only to tiptoe out of room and accidentally slam the door behind you. The blood curdling screams resume.
People who say they sleep like a baby obviously don’t have a baby.
