Murphy’s Law For Babies: Because Despite Your Best Effort, You Won’t Be Prepared

4. When you’ve exhausted every option but chloroform, she will fall asleep.

The other night I got cocky in my parenting. Baby had taken her two naps for the day on schedule, had a decent amount of activity in between and by 8:00 she was fast asleep. When 11:00 hit and she was still scooting through Dreamland, I started feeling myself. What, we didn’t have to wrestle with the pacifier or engage in Rock-A-Bye Baby wars tonight? Winning! But of course at 11 o’ clock sharp, just as Ms. Veronica was about to give Benny the business on the Have and Have Nots, baby decided that rumpus time was on and popping. By the time the battle for back to sleep was over, I was so damn tired I was knocked out right beside her.
