"YOU WILL SLEEP AGAIN."
The princess was that perfect baby. She would eat, sleep, wake, eat, sleep. She slept through the night at 5 weeks old. Then, we met the monkey! She would eat, eat, cry, eat, eat, cry, sleep for a second, then wake to eat AGAIN. She didn't sleep through the night until after I went back to work and she was probably 13-15 weeks old. Of course, there are mothers reading this (probably not really) that are like "my child is 2 yrs old and still doesn't sleep" or "my child had reflux" or any other horrible story of newborns. Let me just say it was still tough compared to the princess. Not impossible and not the worst it could have been, but still I like to sleep. I require sleep!
No matter how tough those hours are that you are awake with a little baby never forget that you will sleep again. I'm sure when my girls are dating, driving and staying up all night with slumber parties, I will need to remind myself:
"YOU WILL SLEEP AGAIN!"
