Murphy's first law of mothering

If the baby remains asleep for a decent stretch of time, an older kid will need a weird amount of attention in the middle of the night.

Yup. And if not a kid, the spouse. If not the spouse, the pet. If not the pet, sirens. If not sirens, my bladder. Going several years without a 6-hour stretch of sleep will, in the words of a wise CSPP, crack a girl.

The Second Law is, when one kid goes down for a nap, another will wake up.

I had another Law in mind, but was distracted by a child & forgot it. Maybe that's the Third Law. :-) (HappyFox)
