I'm not responsible for my foray into Amazon Prime. I blame that on my partner, who signed us up in the first place. Therefore, I think I can officially blame him for every single thing I've ever ordered via Prime. Just this week I’ve picked up art supplies for my daughter, a Thermos for my son, and several rugs for our new home. I enjoy the service and, more than that, I believe it can provide important insights into my life. For example, what an Amazon Prime order says about how much sleep I'm getting is way more informative than the perpetual bags under my eyes.
Sleep is a precious commodity in the life of a mother. The items she buys via Amazon Prime can offer insight into how much she needs and values sleep and, also, why she may not be getting it. For example, if you see someone has ordered a 6-pack of bibs, an amber teething necklace, and ear plugs, you can figure she's probably the mother of a teething baby who won't stop crying or drooling and she's doing everything she can to make this situation better. You can also also make a probably accurate guess as to how much shut-eye she's getting: none.
