Sleeping in

Anyone who has had kids knows you are basically trading in late mornings for the proper care and raising of the future of humanity. It's not a bad trade-off in the long run, but it may seem like a steep price, especially at 6 a.m. on a Saturday after you stayed up a little too late watching 'The Hobbit' the night before (yes, I'm still catching up on movies that debuted in 2012).

Operation Good Morning

Sleep deprivation is a form of torture. In the early weeks and months of having three newborns, I probably would have confessed to several murders if someone told me I could sleep in.

But as the kids sleep with consistency through the night and sanity is regained, things smooth out. But sometimes you still can't see the forest for the trees. You get into habits that were formed in the early days and forget to look for, let alone see, the big picture.
