Ohmygosh, I am laughing so hard right now. We've lived through those moments, too. My neighbor and I joke (but are half serious) about putting socks on our doors to signal to each other that we're "indisposed" when the kids try to run back and forth between our homes. I have a friend whose 3-year-old walked in on them and climbed up behind the mom to "play horsey on daddy too." Too funny. Oh well, at least we aren't emotionally scarring them, right?

Well, eskimo kids -- who sleep in the same bed as their parents -- seem to turn out okay.

Don't worry - it gets easier when they get older. You just have to figure out something to send them to their room for for a little while.

When they (and you) get older, you can't hope to wait until they've fallen asleep. Usually you fall asleep before they do...

Ontario Emperor speaks the truth. Even with a 3yo and 10yo, by the time they're in bed, we're too tired for more than a glass of red and a book. That is, I drink the red and my wife reads the book.

However, there is hope: somewhere between 1am and 4am can be very good indeed …

Wow. All you guys get to have sex? I can still vaguely remember what that was like.

Oh yeah: January, February …

You folks crack me up. Faith, you were my 200th comment! Woo-hoo.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
