7. My night vision is so acute now that I can navigate my home blindfolded. If only that was a useful skill…

6. Lack of sleep becomes the best excuse ever, for everything. “Sorry about (fill-in-the-blank) - I can’t remember the last time I slept more than 3 hours in a row!”

5. The middle of the night is the best time to catch up on every photo ever posted by that one random high school acquaintance.

3. It’s more fun to try and find my baby’s GumDrop pacifier under her crib at 3 AM.
