I can answer that in a heartbeat

Why were parents so awesome before they became parents?

Well, in my specific example, with a new kiddo, I’d have to call 2009 “the year of not sleeping.”  I’ve been a zombie for 8 months now, achieving nothing of any meaning or import whatsoever except making sure that Squirmy Wigglebutt doesn’t suffer malnutrition or fall on her head.

Next semester, I teach afternoons/evenings.  I’ll miss “evening come-home,” but Mr. Night Shift will actually start getting 35-40 hours of sleep per week.  I can’t WAIT.

    Yes indeed – getting normal hours of sleep is really quite an amazing thing in the first year of parenthood.
