which would you prefer....

A world where the baby wakes you up every 2 hours, but after 15 minutes of nursing happily goes back to sleep. And has lovely 2 hour naps every day right on cue. And is a happy, happy baby...

OR...

A world where the baby sleeps peacefully thru the night for 10 hours. However will not nap for more than 15 minutes and there is not a single second without whining, screaming, or assorted tantrums?

I miss the first one.

This is an easy question for me. The second. Cause I'll be at work and she'll be at my mom's. hehe.

In fact, when we were having some rough nights, I said to the hubby, "It could be worse." He replied, "Yeah, we could have her all day, too." Nice, right? I laughed and laughed.

That has got to be one of the hardest questions of all time. I lean towards the first one just for the happy, but whining is SO much easier to deal with when you've had a little sleep.

May naps AND sleeping through the night be in your near future.

caramama,

I telework so the screaming is almost impossible to deal with. I'm home with him and I'm trying to work at the same time.

It's hard enough when he's happy!

Ah I had the same thought as caramama.

I think they are all some of each of those at some point in their lives.

I don't know how you get any work done with the baby at home. I telecommute sometimes and keep Boog at home but very little gets done.
