I am sitting with my youngest so she can get to sleep and I hear my wife and my oldest talking. I remembered when I was little and lying in bed, because of my bedtime, and I would hear people talking, I would be thinking how great it would be when I could stay up late like everyone else..now, many MANY years later, I find myself thinking. I wish they would be quit talking so I could go to sleep

In the last 10 years I can remember the 3 nights I slept through the night;
1) the night after my youngest was born
2) the next night
3) a night 6 years ago when it was really really hot outside and I finally got the AC working in a room so my wife and kids could sleep and I slept in a room without AC..... and I have no idea why I slept through the night that time...but I did

That's all folks

You're getting old when you can remember dialing a phone.

What does it mean if more than half the list pertains to oneself? :hmm:

What's the deal with old people not sleeping through the night? Are they worried about kids sneaking on to the lawn in the dark?
