Here's the thing about sharing one cozy sleeping space as a family: it can get un-cozy REALLY fast. Like when the 18-month-old wakes, roots through the cupboard, and upends a cereal box over all the bedding while you sleep. Or when the same 18-month-old screams without cease for no discernible reason, and there is really no way of keeping the 5-year-old asleep. These things, simply, suck.

And speaking of sucking, WHY won't that same 18-month-old get the memo about being weaned already and stop the madness!

Sleep, it turns out, is the essential ingredient in sanity. At least mine.

How do all of those societies that have been living in one-roomed dwellings for thousands of years manage this aspect? I am going to research this. If I can stay awake to do it.

  1. I'm trying to wean HaHa too, but she is determined. Maybe we should get the two of them together and do an intervention!
