in thread I mostly sleep...

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

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 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 ;)
