    Somewhere along the line the phrase "sleep like a baby" came to mean that one had gotten a great nights sleep. When you were a guest at someone's house they would inevitably ask you in the morning "How did you sleep?" "Oh great, I slept like a baby," is the ready made answer. This does not make a bit of sense. Truly "sleeping like a baby" means that you wake up every three hours crying because you are hungry and you have pooped in your diaper. I hope I never "sleep like a baby" again.

      Thanks everyone for the kind words.

      a kind merciful God has given her her mother's looks and not mine.


      Three kids, yikes! Two is about to kill me. For a brief moment this week my wife thought she may be pregnant again. Suicide did cross my mind at the thought of having two children 11 months apart.


      The prospect of winding up in diapers again before this is all over is not very appealing. If it happens then I hope for a pretty nurse, I hear the sponge baths are nice.


      I am a cynical old man, no doubt.

      I love the caption! Great composition and lighting. Very peaceful... even though these moments probably don't last very long.

      Discovered using FlickrFox. (?)

      I always thought the expression came from the few moments they do embrace sleep. By the looks of the angelic baby the sleep is pure and blissful. Hopefully, your time of diapers and crying is well off into the future!
