You know the saying “Sleeping Like a Baby?” It means, “If you sleep very well, you sleep like a baby.” Well…

Most babies don’t sleep enough. Enough hours in a row. Especially in the middle of the night. Getting up at 3:00 a.m. just sucks. So does 5:00 a.m.

We know that sleeping babies are the cutest. Calm. Sweet. Precious. No crying. No fussing. You stare at them and watch them while they sleep and breathe. But you know that if you stare too long, they could…wake up!

And you need these precious two hours of quiet.

Time to shower and shave your legs. It’s been awhile. Or maybe even to take a nap yourself.

So the next time you’re trying to explain pure and blissful, dog-days-of-summer sleep, why don’t you just say “Sleeping Like a Dog.” Man, you can’t wake those suckers up unless you’ve packing some bacon.

Additionally, so does 11:30pm and 1:30am…I’m just sayin’. And you are spot on about the whole dog thing.

So true!!! Sometimes when I sleep like a baby, I wake up and need to change my poopy nappy! (It’s embarrassing)

Aw, that is so cute!

I am picturing it now…thanks for that,

Who likes broken sleep? Not me! I’ll take my 7 hours straight, thankyouverymuch.

Thanks for writing!
