Funny video: Mother slides out of room so as not to wake baby
All new parents know the drill: get that baby some Z's and whatever you do, don't wake him up when you try to leave the room.
Baby must sleep, at all costs. (So you can sleep, or shower, or eat something, finally, for the first time all day, or feed your four-year-old, or write some emails, or, or, or, etc.) For many, it's a desperate act of patience and tricks.
Caryn Morris of Durban, South Africa, has perfected the furtive exit, as you can see in this hilarious video her husband Tyrone shared online:
Parenthood allows us to develop very special talents that we might not have known we had. And some of them are simply priceless.
