Sleep Is For Beginners

sleep 001Dear little criminal,
Maybe you could do a post on sleep deprivation as a tool to get what
you want. I’m 3 and my mom hasn’t slept through the night since I
was born.

Your friend and like minded criminal

Dear sneaky pete,

If mom and dad get a good night sleep they wake up all rested and stuff. You know, all energetic and strong and thinking straight.
That’s not good. You want them tired, ’cause a tired parent is slow and weak and has a hard time saying “no.”

Sounds like you are doing a great job, so far. But you never know when they’re going to start finding ways to get some rest. So keep waking them up at night to keep them off balance.

If you can keep them tired, you can get pretty much anything you want. You can aim small, like having maple syrup and pickles for breakfast.
I like to aim high. I have a note from my dad promising me a Escalade with spinners when I turn 10.

I let him sleep through a whole episode of The Wiggles for that.

Keep up the good work.

TLC

Tired moms are super mean. I know this to be true. Beware.

Dying laughing.

Dammit. It is as if my children are reaching out and teaching all the little criminals of the world their wicked ways and promoting their criminal thinking.

Mommies who haven’t slept in 4 years may also start screaming and tossing little hooligans in their jail/bedroom (where they break things and scribble on the wall.) Eventually, Social Services might have to take the tiny deviants to a foster home, when mommy finally cracks.

I once heard that parents act like they haven’t slept but are actually plotting a way to catch their little bad bastards in action. Yeah right…

Sleep is for the weak. Take this from a mom who hasn’t slept in 5 years.

Barney is playing, mommy is sleeping, I have permanent markers. I hope she likes her new makeup!

Kat, I feel your pain, I don’t get much either.

Parents combat this by tag teaming on the weekend and catching up with sleep. One naps while the other is on point – then switch. Don’t let the little monsters win!

Dear Little Criminal,

Revenge is a dish best served cold. And when you’re a teenager and want to sleep until say 6pm, well, that’s when we play our version of the sleep deprivation game with you. Mwahahahahahaha!

Love,

Mom
