A Letter to the Children of the Blogosphere

Dear Children of the Blogosphere,

Is 5 a.m. the new 7? Is midnight the new noon? Everywhere I click, you pipsqueaks are boycotting your zzzzzs. And apparently we didn't get the memo.

Is a few hours of shut-eye too much to ask? Are precious chunks of uninterrupted sleep beyond your capacity for giving, you brats?

Listen here. We're tired.

We work. We cook. We clean. We change diapers. We wipe butts. We wipe noses. We commute. We give baths. We schedule. We organize. We comfort. We mend. We kiss. We hug. We exercise. We chauffeur. We shop.

We're tired. So give us a break, m'kay?

Yo! Angry Women Needing Naps

This letter sponsored by patent-pending Children's Ambien: BECAUSE WHEN YOU NEED A BREAK, WE KNOCK THEM OUT COLD.

[Not really. You must excuse me. Being both tired AND hungry (yeah, the f'ing fruit isn't cutting it) really sucks.]

*scampering off to get a big, fat cream cheese bagel*

[Not really.]

Mom of 5 said...

Yep. Yet again last night I was up with pukers and poopers. LOVELY. I work in the pharmacy field. I don't medicate my children, but I would be all over Children's Ambien. Am I joking????? hmmm.....hard to say for sure...... Ask me again after I've had more than 3 hours of sleep.

(((on a side note, the first week of the fruit flush was the hardest for me, but subsequent weeks have been a lot easier)))

Life As I Know It said...

Yeah, you tell 'em!

Thanks for the link!

I'm sending this memo to my non-sleeping 2 year old.

AMEN, children! Go to sleep and stay asleep!

*cue angels singing*

THANK YOU for speaking up for all of us! I'm going to make my kids memorize this so they know what they're dealing with!

Amy said...

Is it terribly annoying of me to have the opposite problem? The Poo would sleep in all morning lately, making us perpetually late.

But karma gets me anyways - she gave up her naps well nigh a year ago, so don't hate me too much.

Please tell me how to officially join Y.A.W.N.N. I believe I am an honorary member. RC has decided he "doesn't like night-nights". Manic Mommy would kill for night-nights.
