In college, I pulled all-nighters all the time. There was the weekend all nighters, staying out partying with friends until the sun came up. Then there was the studying all-nighter – hanging in the computer lab on campus, drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes until we finished our finals. After nights like these, you went home and crashed until 1:00 or 2:00pm. You recovered quickly; you didn’t have a hang over, and you were ready to do it again if you felt like it.

These days, all nighters included a teething baby, infant Motrin, making bottles, and watching Sesame Street. Recovering from an all nighter is a totally different experience. I wasn’t drinking last night but I definitely feel hung over. It’s very possible that it will take my three nights until I feel rested again. I mean, rested in mommy standards. Tonight, I think I might never feel rested again.
