Sleep like a baby

Anyone who has lived with a baby knows that the phrase “sleep like a baby” has been grosely misinterpreted. A baby may sleep soundly but only for very short bursts. Then they are crying, screaming and crapping themselves the rest of the night.

I think the part we covet is how peaceful they appear to be. Not the need for constant reassurance that we are not alone.

Why wouldn't you want to that peace they find so easily, if not briefly? If I didn't have a million and one things on my mind…I might sleep too. As it is I toss and turn most of my ‘sleeping’ hours and want to sleep through my waking ones.

So to those who wish to ‘sleep like a baby’ I say you, must not have kids.

So young and peaceful
