I've decided that Moms don't get enough sleep. You get pregnant...In the beginning, you can't sleep because you feel nauseous all night. Then you are hungry all night. Then the baby gets big and you are uncomfortable. Then the baby gets really big and not only are you extremely uncomfortable, you are kept up by a very wiggly infant who rolls around during the night, smashing your bladder and stretching his little body, making you wince in agony and having to pee all night. You finally have the little wiggle worm, and they need your "attention" or should I say Swollen Milk Jugs. And when they start sleeping longer, you are waking up because those "swollen milk jugs" are even more swollen. Eventually this all begins to subside. That little wiggle worm starts to sleep longer and you are just starting to get sleep since it started a year and a half ago...then..."hunny, we're Pregnant!!" Only this time around, you've got a toddler who decides to "not sleep", and decides that naps are no longer necessary, leaving you...well, sleep deprived. The story continues on. More babies, then teenagers. How in the HECK to we do this? Ahhhh, the power of a Mother. So, "sleep?", forget it. Who needs it anyway? I think I'll try to go get some now.
