ahh, no doubt many many people will relate to your little tale :)

in thread I mostly sleep...
When my firstborn came along I was living in Alice Springs, Central Australia. My wife and I were thoroughly enjoying our DINK lifestyle (the first definition). I was a shifworker, and used to spend almost all my (substantial amount of) free time either playing golf, or drinking beer after playing golf :D
And then Daniel arrived....
Fair dinkum, during those first few months after we bought him home from the hospital I honestly believed that my life was over. That kid had the most incredible set of lungs, and boy did he know how to use them! ....constantly ...day and night.. sleep? ...hah! I believe at one stage I completely gave up on the idea of trying to sleep, because I knew that I would be woken up almost immediately after I managed to doze off.
But thankfully, he settled down after a month or two and has been an (almost) complete angel in the 17 years since :)
I've almost fully recovered now, although as some people have noticed, I still have a tendancy to yawn quite a bit ;)
