  1. Just found your blog today thanks to the Huffington Post article about sleep deprivation and couldn’t figure out why your name was vaguely familiar. Then when I read this page I knew why. Back when I used to live in Naptown your hubby and his band mates (Earthtone) were regulars at the Ram’s Head Tavern where I worked. I kept up with the guys through MySpace and Facebook and such. I remember Marshall posting about the birth and other issues about your daughter and am inspired by how well everything is going for you both. Your blog is so funny and so true to life. I am currently expecting my second child but it was my first (a girl) who was the insane non-sleeper. I hope this little guy is better but it’s nice to know us sleep deprived momma’s are not alone.


  2. Sarah – I just read your most recent Huffington Post article today. As I read it I kept thinking “oh my god…this is me. I feel so much what she feels.” Not to mention I’m also a part-time freelance writer (my dream job) while taking care of my 2 and 5 year old kiddos. I then went on to read some of your other articles on the subject of marriage and motherhood. I just wanted to tell you how brave, insightful, honest and helpful you are in sharing your thoughts, fears, dreams and experiences during a very challenging life change. I’m not sure what life holds for me, but it seems that I’m in a very similar place to the one you were in. So thank you for sharing something so personal. Your words, vulnerability and perspective really touch my heart!
