as the state anticipates a new little citizen in march, we found this recent british study hilarious:

When Daddy goes deaf: How men really DON’T hear babies crying while asleep

some particularly insightful gleamings:

Many an exhausted mum has suspected her husband of pretending to be asleep when baby cries in the middle of the night.

But the man really is firmly in the Land of Nod, say researchers.

While a baby’s sobbing is the number one sound most likely to wake up a woman, it doesn’t even figure in the male top ten.

Car alarms, howling wind and a buzzing fly are the prime noises guaranteed to disturb a man’s sleep.

a buzzing fly?!

the other interesting bit was that a baby’s cry was the number one reason women’s sleep was interrupted – whether or not they were mothers.

those little creatures certainly are effective at getting what they need…
