switch off the light

Standard

when fb was born, i worried if he didn’t sleep, slept too long, slept restlessly or slept too soundly…

i set about making the room 

quiet,

dark,

cozy…

then rocked him for 30 minutes after which he would sleep for seven minutes and cry. i dutifully got all hassled.

rock rock rock again, followed by a few minutes of shut-eye and howling…

even writing about his sleep cycle is tiring…

for param, i just switch off the light and crash even before he does.

 why do i always have to learn things the hard way
