I've struggled with insomnia since I was a pretty young kid, so I know what it's like to be tired as hell. I honestly only started sleeping soundly and fearlessly through the night about a year before I started having kids. Yeah, that timing sucks. I finally found out why people loved sleep so much, and then it was ripped from my grasp. I miss my newfound buddy, sleep.

But if it's one of those days that back-up's not available, or you don't want cash in those babysitting favors until you absolutely need them — like when you start having sleep-deprivation induced hallucinations — then you might want to give some of my inventions a try.
