Tired mommy

Aden slept through the night last night!  He is more than six months old now and still not consistently sleeping through the night but we think we have the trick now.  Wear his butt out!  We bought him a bouncy horsey and our babysitter bought a bouncy horsey so between the two of us we are hoping we will bounce his butt to sleep.  I thought it would be easy to get him to sleep all night, just stuff him full of food before he goes to bed and he’ll sleep all the way through.

Apparently, Aden has other ideas.  It doesn’t matter how much we feed him or don’t feed him, he always wakes up a couple times of night.  I don’t know if this is typical or not.  Until he starts crawling, I am hoping this horsey keeps his butt exhausted.  I am a tired mommy.

Tired mommies do not do so well at work. I did see a quote recently about how men do not worry about juggling career and home life.  I don’t remember who said it but it is true, although I know Kevin would love to stay home with Aden as much as I would.  I believe we should all work from our homes and save our companies the expense of overhead.  I believe the only reason we go to the office is because we are attached to this antiquated idea of seeing someone in the office which means they are working.  Ha!

With a few mental leaps into the future, we could all be working from home and seeing the people we want to see for lunch.  We could put up whatever artwork we wanted to keep us inspired. We could work in our pajamas. Utopia!  Then mommy could sleep a few minutes longer! At least I wouldn’t have to worry about hiding the bags under my eyes. At least I’m not the only one thinking this way, Chris Pirillo wrote an article for CNN.com about this same thing.
