Oh my poor, poor wife! With about six weeks left until "Taddy's" arrival, I have noticed that my wife is unable to get any sleep! And anyone who knows what my wife is like when she is tired ( sorry Neeta, I had to throw that in!) understands that this just is not a good thing. She has been going to bed earlier and earlier each night over the past few weeks, only to wake up every two or three hours and then finds herself unable to fall back asleep. Usually, this leads to me being woken up by her constant "sighing", which usually means that she needs me to turn the Ipod radio shows on. ( You know, the old radio shows from the 1940's...before good old TV.) This usually does the trick....for another two hours or so!
We know that once Taddy arrives, sleep will be at a premium. Perhaps this is natures way of preparing parents for the lack of future sleep? I really wish that I had a magic solution that could help her stay asleep all night long?
Any suggestions? ( And no, a glass or three of wine is will not work!)
