The definition has certainly changed since I became a mom. I feel like, for the most part, I don't really do it. I just kind of spent the night in this half awake state and take Natalie to the bathroom, check on someone coughing, rub a back for a few minutes, put a blanket back on, turn on a hall light, listen to see if Emmy will put herself back to sleep, adjust the thermostat, etc. I remember when I was a kid I could walk into my mom's room at any time of night and say her name once and she would answer back. I didn't have to wake her. I can understand that now.
I was laughing at a Tempurpedic commercial I saw. They boasted that you would not even feel the movement of your spouse as they get out of bed in the morning. Oh please. If only my biggest worry of being woken up was from Nate rolling out of bed in the morning.
Apparently these guys grow when they are sleeping because they just keep getting bigger and bigger.
This one at a particularly fast rate.
