    My daughter broke us when she was 5 months old. Refused to sleep in her crib and was using us as mattresses on the couch. We traded 4 hour shifts overnight. That night she refused to sleep longer than an hour at a time and we were all zombies the next day.

    We did the cry-it-out method the next night. Longest 105 minutes of my life. The next night it took her 15 minutes of crying to fall asleep, the night after that she conked out in about 2 minutes and except for the expected sleep regressions and teething, she's slept like a champ since.

    But yeah, as much as I love my daughter you couldn't pay me to go through the newborn phase again. People who like babies boggle my mind.

      Totally fucked up in other ways, of course.

        I like other people's babies.

        That's the beauty of grandkids. You just send them home when you are tired of them.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

          Never fully goes away, either. Daughter just turned 2, usually sleeps great, but she had a nasty cold this weekend, so she's been up coughing and wheezing all night for the last 4 nights. She mostly did not need help clearing her airways or getting back to sleep, but damn you'd hate to miss that one time that she needs it....so no sleep for Mom and Dad. Last night was my turn with the monitor - I think I got a total of 3 hours in 20-minute bursts.

          If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

          • Trying my best but can't find a source that provides data (if it exists?) to support the idea that the more that vaccinate the less likely variants will develop.

            When an orc asks, "Why do you care if I vaccinate?" I'm looking for beyond the obvious.

              I don’t know what data exists but this is basic virus knowledge- the more hosts we give it, the more it replicates and gets smarter and adapts just like other living organisms

                This is the right answer. My friends have kids...I spoil them and love them all to death! I also leave and dont see them for weeks at a time ;^)

                  I've always hated babies and I was worried with my daughter entering the Spawn Phase, but last weekend Dr. Mrs. and I visited a friend with a 6 month old and it was the sweetest kid on Earth. Really fun to experiment on.

                    Agree with what most are saying here, though. A screaming infant should be used as torture.

                          Here's hoping he caught a cold.

                            Dr. Mrs. suggested requiring it for admission to NASCAR races or NFL games.
