You never know what a precious commodity sleep is until you're subjected to sleep deprivation torture. Or you have kids. As a first time mom of a young babe who never really took to sleeping, I kept reminding myself that it would pass. That I would only be able to snuggle my sweet boy in the wee hours of the morning for such a very, very short time before he would be hopping off my lap, refusing to snuggle at all, going away to college and getting married and having babies himself. And these things are true. Time hit the gas pedal as soon as I met one of the three most charming people I have ever met in my entire life. But people (even my beloved bub) are a heck of a lot more charming after a good nights' sleep. And a very, very short time turns into a very long time as hours of lost sleep turn into days--even weeks--and days blend into nights. . .
