The experience could be better if someone appreciated your efforts. There is a tendency for babies to ruin your plan to catch some rest with loud shrieks. As soon as the baby is back to sleep a shriek from your backyard sends you off your game. A wrestle mania show would have been appreciated if it wasn’t live between your kids and no one made you a referee. Then you are awakened by the reality of the half done work that was interrupted when you picked up the call reminding you of a school meeting. The food you are preparing was on the verge of burning. That may just as well be the warm up.
