The Learning Curve
This concept, you see, of "establish a going to bed routine for your baby", appears to have eluded us entirely. This of course results in what the books choose to charmingly call an "unsettled" baby, which loosely translated into English appears to mean a grizzly wriggly angry crying wailing yelling unsleeping demon child.
Perhaps, punkling, new babies should be issued with some kind of flashing neon sign, or red light, some sort of siren or other warning device, that would let new parents know that their course of action (say, watching another episode of Kingdom Hospital) will likely result in an unsleeping demon child if pursued.
The endpoint of all this, punkin, is that I'm working from home today so that your mum can sleep, and you're currently helping me write a document entitled ERP Application Management Services Transition and Related Upgrade Activities. I'm sure that the riveting nature of this document is what has triggered your self defense styled response, of falling fast asleep.
Love you, unsleeping demon child.
