Once there was a girl who married a boy. The first 12 hours of the union were bliss and then she realized that he snored...really, really, really loudly.
Fast forward 6 months and said girl is cranky because she hasn't had a good night's sleep in well, 6 months. She realizes that she has 2 options...divorce or suffocation. Not wanting to beat Britney Spears' short marriage record and not particularly fond of jail time, she takes the advice of a friend and begins sleeping with earplugs in her ears. Sleep returns, the marriage is intact, and she lets the boy live.
Fast forward 7 1/2 years, and the girl and boy are expecting a baby girl. And it hits her, she is going to need to hear every bump in the night...she is going to have to give up the ear plugs...she knows that sleep is going to be a thing of the past anyway, but she has been enjoying this cocoon of silence while sleeping for 7 1/2 years...and so, with only 6 weeks to go until the princess arrives, the girl must wean herself.
