Anyone who has children knows what Phantom Crying is.
All of a sudden, in the middle of the night, you come out of a sound sleep 100% sure that your baby is crying. You will jump out of a wonderfully warm bed to check on the baby, or if you have more than one, you stand in the hallway, poised, ready to go to whichever child it was that needed you.
No one cried.
Except you, and maybe the husband that you scared half to death as you leapt out of bed.
It's not limited to sleeping hours though. In the middle of the day too. During nap time, I'll hear it, Phantom Crying, and go check on the girls to see who is it.
Neither one, they're both perfectly fine, sound asleep.
It's just one of the many ways in which your children make you lose your mind...and fall asleep at your desk.
Guess who's been up since 4:30 this morning?
