    Its 4 a.m. and the baby won't sleep!

    He fed at 2 am and has not been able to go back to sleep. So I am up, groggy-eyed, with coffee in hand trying to remember why I wanted to have another baby? I am pretty sure the answer will come to me at some point but for right now, can I trade this 10 month old for a puppy? LOL!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    No, sorry no swaps at the moment "Puppies for babies" LOL
    I can relate, when I remember those late nights/early mornings rocking a baby that was happy to be rocked but wanted nothing to do with the crib.

    all with be forgiven when he is taking a nap and you have caught up on some sleep.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    They grow up so fast and then you will wish that they were small again.

    Enjoy this time. They grow up fast and become teenagers.

    My DD gave me a plaque that says "Grandchildren are the reward you get for not strangling your teenagers." How true!

    I have 4 stepchildren, a 12 yr old of my own, 12 granchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Let me check the local ads for puppies and I'll trade. I always wanted a maximum of 12 and a minimum of 8 but when you don't get started being able to conceive and carry until 45, having a large family isn't feasible.


    Seriously though, I wish I lived closer, I'd take him for a few days so that you could get some sleep.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    Oh I so remember, I also remember I always wished it back having him safe in my arms at 4 am rather than wondering where they were. This is just for a little while teenagers are teens for a lot longer!!

    I remember those days and nights. Hopefully you will get a nap in to catch up on sleep. I miss my kids so much! There are times when I see little tykes in stores with their mommies and I think back to when mine were babies. Cherish each moment.

    I remember that desperate feeling when you just want sleep, for both of you! With my first baby, she was awake for hours around 2:00 and I finally called my mom in tears, I was just at my wit's end and didn't know what to do (having tried everything). My sisters got on me for it, said I shouldn't scare our mom by calling in the middle of the night. But -- I needed my mom, because that's what moms are for. And now you are a mom...it's a great job!
