I have to play devils advocate on a few things.
I have had dogs that would bark at the stupidest things, but not when they should have been barking, and some dogs just aren't barkers. I can honestly
say I have never heard my grandparents lab bark.
The baby clothes. Yea I did that a lot. Most baby clothes are pajama like and they go through clothes like crazy and half the time my kids pajamas
were in the laundry,
A new mom probably wouldn't sleep with the door closed with a sick baby, but a mom who has had several kids, well yeah, we tend to learn when to
stress and when not to. With my first I would have been hovering over all night, by my third if it was just a sniffle, by 10 months, yeah, I would
have unless it was bad.
Mothers of babies are sleep deprived eventually your body say's enough is enough, and you end up completely dead to the world not matter how much
noise is made, especially if she had a glass of wine. Also, if you can co-sleep with a kid in bed you can sleep through anything,
As an insomniac when I finally do sleep I sleep hard, and I can totally see myself sleeping through a break in and a barking dog on those nights.
I do have to say the whole cell phones thing has me mystified but some have mentioned having the phones by the bed. I never keep my phone by my bed
because being a mom, my sleep is precious and I don't want to be woken up by. Mine is in the kitchen turned off on the charger at night. I don't
understand however why the kidnapper would take the phones. That just doesn't make sense.
Edit to say, I am only half awake, and I am to tired to proof read my post again. here is hoping it makes sense.
