In case you missed it, going viral this weekend is a one-minute clip that brilliantly captures just one of the many reasons why getting some shut-eye with a baby in the house is damn near impossible. Aside from being woken up at all hours for middle-of-the-night feedings or inexplicable crying jags, there's also the fact that the whole "napping when baby naps" concept sounds great in theory, but is tactically futile when it comes to execution.
Instead of the adorable cuddle sesh she was hoping for, Mom just gets a whole lotta this:
And of course, this:
"Every morning my baby sleeps in my bed with me for a couple hours after she wakes up to eat," the mom explained on her YouTube page. "And every morning I ask myself why I didn't just put her back in her crib ... so this morning I grabbed my cellphone and recorded what my baby alarm clock looks like. I think I'm not alone in this."
Sigh. She's certainly not.
Check out the full clip below. We're sure you know this routine all too well.
