It is now 11:20 PM, and my sweet baby has been asleep since 9:30.

I can't sleep. I'm so tired, I can't sleep. Does it count as sleeping if you can hear yourself snoring? How is it possible to be awake and yet sleeping at the same time?

Oh, wait, I'm a mom. I won't be fully awake for another 10 years. Then I'm going to do this:

Sleep-deprivation, otherwise known as "normal mental state of all mothers of young children". It really is a blessing, though, because if we were alert enough to really see the state of our messy houses we'd all run screaming off the nearest cliff a la lemmings in spring.
