Desperate Househusband

I don't know about you, but I don't do well with sleep deprivation. I turn into a Shrek-like being. Any advise about how to manage that is most welcome! I've also been having some adventures putting together various baby gear. I think God is having some fun at my expense. I discovered that the screws included with the bassinet were not the right size and that the screws included with the changing table were designed in a way that made it well nigh impossible to assemble the thing. Perhaps the phrase "screwed" originated with a father cursing his way through assembling some poorly designed baby equipment. On the upside, the bassinet comes with a little gadget that gives off tranquilizing sounds like forest animals chirping and the ocean. I think I enjoy it more than my son does.

"...thou art first in relation to thy son, last in relation to thy father. In thine outward appearance, thou tellest of the appearance of power in the realms of divine creation; in thine inward being thou revealest the hidden mysteries which are the divine trust deposited within thee." (Baha'u'llah, The Seven Valleys, p. 26)
