Big monster SUVs and minivans are parked in compact spaces....essentially taking up 3 spaces, because no one can park on either side of them unless they have a tiny car like a Smartcar.

When you spend an hour in the middle of the night to change baby's diaper, feeding it, letting it burp, calm him down to the point of near-sleep, letting him drink again, another burp and oooh he finally sleeps...and then you hear 'PHHRRRHHHRRRT' coming from his pants. And you know changing the diaper will wake him up again, at which point he wants to drink again, and another burp, and another lullaby, setting you up for another hour of baby wrestling. Just putting him in his bed won't work because the dirty diaper will wake hik up in 10 minutes.
And with my luck, when he is finally sleepy again, he will wet his diaper again, restarting the whole cycle again.

When you go to bed early because you have a cold and haven't been sleeping very well the past few days, only to wake up about 4 hours later wide-eyed and unable to go back to sleep.

Yeah. Guess why I'm on Ehell right now. :(

Actually, mr Sprite does get out of bed to do the diaper duty, but the diapers are the easy part. :p but I'm blessed with a husband who is willing to take on parts of the nightshifts.

My sympathies.  That's what happens if I take antihistamines.  So, I can either stay awake because I can't breathe, or I can stay awake because I took something to help me breathe.   :P

Thanks. I did take some cold meds last night, thinking it'd help me sleep. Ha, ha, joke's on me.

But, but, but . . . these are the moments that you are supposed to cherish! That's what keeps the population growing! ;D

My irritation?

A certain someone I know pulls on a door that says PUSH. Constantly. It's frustrating.

Oh, and getting comfortable only to have the cat scratch at the door and howl until I let her in.

Last night, house cool, my feet freezing and achy, I settled in with a nice warm afghan and watched TV with my sweetie and the dog, who proceeded to request (all of these as soon as I'd finally gotten warm again) that I take the dog out, get sweetie more to drink, get the dog a treat (because he went out and sweetie forgot to give him one when we came back in), make a salad, make dinner, oh, and would you mind.....

at which point I said "No." And sat for twenty blissful minutes until I discovered I had to pee.

Oof.  Bittybartfast is still waking up multiple times a night wanting to nurse, so I FINALLY got her to sleep around 3:30.  And then Babybartfast came to jump on me at 6:00.  And about every twenty minutes thereafter.  By 7:00 I told her she should go jump on daddy instead, and she said he had already left for work (rare, but possible).  So I dragged myself out of bed, got Bittybartfast up and dressed, got Babybartfast dressed . . . and discovered that DH was still here, like usual, and I could have sent Babybartfast down to bug him for another hour or so before I had to get up  >:(

So now I'm running on only slightly more than 2.5 hours of sleep and I've got two very loud kids with me today and preschool doesn't start back until tomorrow.

When you make a batch of soap using the oven method, and it's sitting in there cooling down nicely, and a family member turns on the oven to start preheating it to cook something, despite repeated warnings to always check.

Mmm, cooked soap...

or.... I ask DS repeatedly if he has to go to the bathroom before bed/car trip/swim lessons and he says no. Two seconds into the trip/bed/lesson-he has to go RIGHT NOW.  Sigh.  (He's 4)

My 4-year-old granddaughter does that. Now I just send her to the bathroom to "try" and it usually works, even if she insists she doesn't need to go.

We do that too.  It's a rule before we leave the house that they have to at least try. 

When you put the food in, plug it in, turn it on, and when your back is turned your DuH wanders through the kitchen, sees that the machine is on (it had a red light on the front) and TURNS IT OFF!!!

I had this problem with a member of my household who shall remain nameless (to protect the guilty).  One night, after the kitchen was cleaned up and pretty much shut down for the evening, I decided to clean the sink using the Fly Lady method.  You basically fill up your basin(s) with bleach water and let them sit for a little while.  Drain, wipe them down and your sinks are all spiffy.

So I filled up one basin and left the other empty in case someone needed to use the sink and went on to do something else.  When I came back 30 minutes later to drain it, I discovered it was already empty.  I thought the drain plug had malfunctioned, so I did it again.  10 minutes later, I heard a gurgle and discovered household member had pulled the plug.  I asked him why he did that.

"Well, the sink was backed up and I was clearing the drain."

Not surprisingly, you have to be careful about how early you preheat an oven because he will see the oven on and turn it off.  He's helpful like that.   ::)

Is he related to my mother? Her transgression is that whenver I turn up the heat on the stove, for a good reason, she will come by, think its too high, and turn it down. I'll then come in, and wonder WHY whatever isn't defrosted/heated/cooked yet.  It drives me nuts. She also has a habit of wanting to start cooking certain things waaaaay earlier than necessary. Such as the mashed potatoes for Christmas dinner, before we had even put the beef tenerloin into the oven!

Oh, my MIL does this - she's of the school of thought that says that if the directions say 300 degrees for 30 minutes, then 250 degrees for two hours is infinitely better. Even if the result means that we set off the fire alarm. Gotta get it cooked all the way done - it might have worms in it. *eyeroll*

When you finally get yourself all cozy on the couch, wrapped in blankets, kitty asleep on your legs, beverage and remotes within reach, good show on TV and the phone rings. The one that you forgot to set down within arm's reach.
