I’d viewed the phrase “sleeping like a baby” with suspicion long before we came into possession* of an actual baby. Now that we have one – who (luckily) sleeps in three and four hour stints – I’m growing even more curious about the phrase.
Well, color me convinced.
Today, we decided to spend an unseasonably pleasant Saturday afternoon picnicking by what turned out to be a major CSX freight rail line. As you will see in this video, I now understand exactly why they talk about sleeping like a baby – check out what this kid can sleep through.
*While people typically talk about having a baby, I think the possession is actually reversed. I mean, if one person is setting schedules, and everyone else is doing the cooking and cleaning up, who would you say is in charge?
