Will We Ever Sleep Again?

As soon-to-be first time parents, we are trying our best to mentally prepare for the many changes about to come to our lives.  And while we don't know exactly how our lives will change until baby actually arrives, the one theme that keeps coming up over and over again is sleep, or the lack thereof....

You all know the song by Lorde called "Royals", right?  Well here's a funny parody Nicole stumbled upon by Josh Stearns and Erica Carlson that had us cracking up and shaking with fear at the same time:

My favorite part is:

And every minute’s like diapers, Thomas, splashin’ in the bathtub
Juice stains, snack traps, screamin’ in the minivan
They don’t care, we can’t remember the last time we dreamed
But everybody’s like swaddles, white noise, sleeping with your baby
Warm milk, rocking, let them cry it out now
We don’t care, we haven’t slept in a couple years.

I guess we better stock up on as much sleep as we possible can until the baby arrives!  Wish us luck!!


  1. Honestly, it's not as bad as people make it sound. Yes, you'll be tired..but you won't mind because that baby is SO worth it. Our little guy just started sleeping for 3ish hour stretches and I feel like that's plenty to keep me going. Hoping he's only going to make those stretches longer. You definitely should enjoy your sleep now...but keep your chin up because it's SO worth it.

    1. Thanks for the advice and encouragement!!! So glad to hear that your little cutie pie is doing well sleeping so far.... I hope that continues for you!!!
