    What part of "I just need ten minutes to myself" don't my kids understand?

    Right - in the dryer now?
    Ok so why is it in with a full load that will take 2 hours to dry?
    But I'm being critical!
    So I take everything out of dryer except swaddle.
    DF then lectures me that it needs a few things in it to work properly.
    Well if you knew that genius, why was I fishing a whole load out of it half an hour ago?

    I honestly think no one in my house listens to a word I say. Not even the dog.
    Need a backup! Search love to dream swaddle sale and see what comes up. That's how I always bought mine, never paid full price!

    Dear people I know who have 'perfectly sleeping babies' - dont look at me like im from another planet when I tell you that I spend all day trying to force ds to go to sleep because thats better than an entire day of overtired hysterical screaming. Dont tell me 'oh just dont bother, he'll go to sleep when he's tired.' No, he wont. You'll never understand the special kind of hell reserved for parents of babies who wont sleep, so dont treat me like im just being ridiculous.

    I love that one. It's my favorite. 'Yeah, just come round for the BBQ/party/dinner etc. chuck him in the pram/porta cot/our cot, he'll be fine! Ours has no worries when we go out'

    Ummm no, he won't sleep, he'll be overtired and lose the plot and I'll spend the entire time dealing with him and not enjoying a second of it, thanks. I'd rather stay home.

    Yep. This. Every outing is meticulously planned around dd's naps and sleep time. She is not an easy going baby..she won't just sleep whenever or wherever. When sleep school nurses tell you that your baby is especially difficult then you know you've got a doozy!

    I'm really glad you've said this, because I've been made to feel the idiot because I too plan my days around DS nap and sleep time. I refuse to make him pay the price for my social life. It's gotten so bad we now feel we have to lie to friends as to why we are leaving/not attending because of the flak we get.

    I cop it too. But as far as I'm concerned they aren't the ones that will have to manage a hysterically overtired, screaming baby for the next two days..
