Two sides, equally strong-willed and determined, face off in an epic battle of sleep. A refusal to give into slumber is met with an equal dedication to enforce the rules of nap-dom. Screaming and a theatric conflict of wills ensue. There can only be one victor.
I just received this book, by Elizabeth Pantley, in the mail yesterday and cannot seem to read the pages fast enough. Between my weary, sleep-deprived eyes and a 5-week-old who won’t nap for more than 15 minutes unless he’s sleeping on one of us, I’m in desperate need of a solution.
I totally felt like Superwoman yesterday. Today…not so much. Now I understand what people mean about the highs and lows of caring for a newborn. Early this morning, I came down with either the flu or some kind of food poisoning, so I’m not at my best today to begin with. I have to admit, heaving less than two weeks after a c-section is quite painful. :-/
