I'm a sleep Whore

"Hello, my name is Ashley. And I am a sleep Whore."

I have not always been a sleep whore. In fact, I didn't care that much about sleep. When I was really little I thought it was a waste of time and have always stuck to that belief. I have never been a night owl and have enjoyed getting up early in the morning. I always have gone to bed at a reasonable time (at my house growing up the lights went OUT by 10:30 and you were left in the dark. Even at christmas time we were able to watch Leno's opening and then DARKNESS).
Since Dayne has been on this little earth things have CHANGED. I was happily doing the night time duty (feedings, rockings, sleeping on the couch, sleeping in the chair, ect). I did all the things that a new mom does until about 5am. Rich started taking over that feeding and i would go get in bed. I discovered I LOVED my bed. It felt so warm and wonderful. It is soft and smells so good. (and I get to sleep without a baby in my arms) I would sleep until 8 or 9. It became my favorite time. Now i am addicted.
Reasons I know i am now a whore:
1. I have been tricking rich to doing the 2/3am feeding and heading to bed then.
2. My in-laws were over last night and when they offered to hold the baby I played the new mom card and went to bed....at 7pm.
3. I am trying to be generous and let rich sleep in (it is 6:20am) but I have plans to trick Rich into staying home from work for a few hours so I can visit the bed when he wakes up.

While I appear to be dooped into the worst of the early morning late night baby activities, I most admit, I sometimes close my eyes in my truck.
