The very tired mommy (my take on the very hungry catepillar)

With apologies to Eric Carl and his Very Hungry Catepillar:

One night the very tired mommy:

fell asleep on the sofa for 1 hour,

(and she was still tired)

slept in a bed for 2 hours (before the baby woke up),

(and she was still tired)

slept in bed *with* the baby for 3 hours (and repeatedly checked the diaper for leaks),

(and she was still tired)

slept in a bed with the baby for 4 hours (until combined yelling voice of a toddler and the stench of a dog fart woke her up:0),

(and she was still tired)

sat at the kitchen table clutching a cup of coffee and writing this post at 7:45 am EST (and she was still tired)

  … that night she went to bed *really* early (like, 4:30 pm EST)
