So all the guides tell you to nap while the baby sleeps - as if this would make up for all the lost sleep at night time feedings. It's a nice idea, in theory. But in practice, here are things that happen during the daytime, inevitably the moment my head hits the pillow:
- the building fire alarm goes off (for the first time ever); after some panic and trying to get the baby dressed for freezing temps, we realize it's a false alarm and the neighbors turn it off
- the gigantic snow plow that usually comes at 4am, decides to come at 3pm and clear the parking lot outside our bedroom
- the neighbours decide that now is the time to boogy to "forget you" and similar boom-bangy-stomp music (nothing wrong with their sound system and amplifier)
- other neighbours think it's the right moment to clear their storage area (right above our bedroom, and no insulation in the wood floors)
- and then, of course, is the sleep-talking by baby-boy himself, but at least I can forgive him that for it is a sign he's alive and well
So much for that then.
