sleep is for the weak. and don't i know it.

Posted Oct 30 2008 6:18pm

On Saturday I attended a book-signing for Sleep is For the Weak.  This quick and entertaining read is a compilation of essays from mommy bloggers such as Finslippy, Surrender Dorothy, Binkytown, Amalah, Three Kid Circus, and more.  I got to meet contributors Kristen Chase (of Motherhood Uncensored, and about to be a Baby Buncher herself), Mir Kamin (Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda), and editor Rita Arens (Surrender, Dorothy).  But most importantly, I got to escape from the house with only one of my three children. 

The book is perfect for Baby Bunchers (i.e. people that have neither the time nor the brain power to read anything longer than the Sunday comics).  The selections are both humorous and poignant, and they are short enough that you can easily pick up, put down, and pick up again without having to remember where you left off.  It bought me two whole days worth of entertainment during nursing sessions, and the occasional story was so moving that it reminded me to actually glance down once in awhile to appreciate and make eye contact with the precious darling that is leeching off of me 20 hours out of the day.  It's definitely worth a read.

And here's your chance!  I've scored a copy to give away!  Since I've got a newborn and I'm sleep deprived, help me out.  Post a comment sharing your favorite tips and tricks for getting your Baby Bunch to sleep well.  First poster to get my wee one to sleep through the night (or at least 4 consecutive hours) wins the book.  Accepting comments until September 17th.  I'll even take anything after that, but you gotta comment by the 17th to be eligible to win, because I need sleep FAST.
