There is a clock in Luke’s nursery and everyday Shawn and I do a run-down of the numbers.
“I was up with him from 1:00 a.m. to 2:00, and then again from 4:00 to 5:30.
“Why so long?”
“We had a false start at 4:45 and had to start all over again.
“Ooh. Those are frustrating.”
“Yep. Was that it?”
“No. I got up and changed his diaper around 3:00.”
“Right. I forgot about that.”
Why do we do this? you ask. Good question. Keeping track of how little sleep you’re getting is just short of masochistic.
