There is ALWAYS something worse
What could possibly be worse than having to get up multiple times during the night with a baby who won't sleep?
I can think of two complicating factors.
First, maybe doing so on a night when you were so desperate to get a good block of unbroken sleep in that you went to bed at 8.30.
And second, taking a sleeping pill to make that block of sleep extra-deep.
Yes, I think either or both of those would definitely make the situation worse.
I would totally feel better about my terrible night of sleep now except that this wasn't a hypothetical exercise in counting my blessings. On Tuesday night, I DID go to bed at 8.30, and I DID take a sleeping pill (not Ambien).
And then I had to get up and take care of a baby multiple times while noting the futility of going to bed early and the foolishness of taking a sleeping pill.
Lesson learned, I suppose.
