    This was my life. This was almost exactly my life! (Lord, the phantom cries. They woke me up at night when the baby (and later, babies when I had twins) were sleeping! I had a similar experience when I had a receptionist job where I answered 15 phone lines and dreamed of ringing phones all the time.

    Those phantom cries are a bitch! Even now, with mine 4 & 2, I still have to stick my head out of the shower and even occasionally turn the water off to make sure I’m not hearing any crying.

    I’m glad you got to have a glass of wine! (you did, right?)

    It gets better. Personally I’d take a crying baby over a 13 year old’s eye roll. Enjoy that baby! You deserve more wine.

    Not long ago I was at a store when to my surprise my mom walked through the doors. So, I surprise blurted, “MOM!” She didn’t even flinch. It was at that point I realized she no longer hears my cries. :)

  5. “Do not cry over this. DO NOT CRY OVER THIS.”

    Hah. This reminds me so much of last spring/summer. Particularly the time I was driving to the grocery store for a little “me time” when I started leaking all over the place. I had to talk myself down from a cry and from turning the car around and going back home. Instead I pulled my hair down over my wet shirt and went on with my grocery run.

    You’re so funny.

    This exact thing happened to me at work once. I leaked all over my shirt because there was a baby crying. I was ringing up a customer on the cash register at the time. The customer kindly told me that I had “sprung a leak”.

    Hugs!

  7. Yep, this. The Wee One is now 6.5 and sometimes my boobs still do that weird “we’re about to become FOUNTAINS YAAAAAAAAY” feeling when I hear babies crying.

    And I still don’t know if I’m making sense to people when I talk. Not because I can only talk about the kid, but because I’m pretty sure I had a c-section/lobotomy combo. It’s the only explanation.

    I don’t know if it will horrify or comfort you, but this made me think back to the pilot of Thirtysomething and the scene where Hope was trying to have lunch with Ellen and the baby started crying in the resturant. I was 16 when that first aired and now I’m 42, so it resonates differently.

    P.S. — How is the showrunner workshop?

    30 years later and I still remember doing the “press hard on your nips” to stop the let-down feeling and subsequent leakage. And at the same time, that “Dairy Queen” role was one of the best times in my life.

    This made me happy. First baby (now 3) screamed and screamed and screamed and I could hear it everywhere I went. He rarely slept. My inner monologue was a lot of, how I am still alive when I haven’t slept more than 12 hours in the last week? How is that even possible?
    My second is 3 months. Don’t want to jinx it but this brother ain’t like the other. Like I just joined a Crossfit gym and I still find my husband charming and attractive. And we haven’t had takeout AT ALL since #2 arrived. Pinch me.
