(as serious or light-hearted as you like)
The Wildflower decided, possibly for some secret baby experiment, that she was going to see how far she could deprive me of sleep before I tore my own hair out. It seems the answer is about 5 days of less than 4 hrs a night, and waking up at 6am on the final day. (if your new in these parts, these 5 days follow on from our usual pretty difficult nights)
But she decided this was old stuff, I mean we did this for a solid 8-9 months, so she threw into the mix 3 days of pre-toddler Almost. Constant. Whining. I believe that she was aiming to see me completely bald.
I'm thankful anyway because I survived.... just.
I'm thankful anyway because it didn't go beyond those 5 days.
I'm thankful anyway because if I were ever to be caught and interrogated, I'm confident that I could go at least 5 days before breaking.
I'm thankful anyway because the mutual lack of sleep is partly because of our closeness - in heart as well as in body.
I'm thankful anyway because I kept my hair.
