Go the F**K to Sleep

“The cats nestle close to their kittens,

The lambs have laid down with the sheep.

You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.

Please go the fuck to sleep.”

I must admit I was appalled when I first came across this book. I was then blissfully pregnant awaiting my little angel with great joy.

Just to be clear – my baby is a little angel, almost always laughs, never cries and is a delight to the whole family (and even some friends!).


When putting her down to sleep took 6 attempts and 2 hours, leaving me exhausted and my love life inexistent, the words in the title of this post just kept coming to my mind.

The only thing that kept me going was the thought that she will have to go to sleep eventually. And she did. At 23.45 (we started getting her ready for bed at 21.00).

She slept till 6.15 in her crib. Score!

Then she woke up so I brought her to our bed. She got up at 8.00.

When she started crawling all over us sticking her fingers in our eyes we had to get up too.

And now she’s taking her morning nap. And we just have to suck it up.

The joys of being parents!

    I survived four (breastfed) kids, not one of whom slept through the night until they were two. I’d say it was tough, but honestly — that whole period is a blur. Like looking back on seven years of warm, fuzzy amnesia and realizing it was wonderful. Probably. As a take-away, I will probably be able to recite “Good Night Moon” verbatum on my deathbed. But I would have cherished “Go the F**K to Sleep”!
