Suggestions for baby onesie slogans!
« on: January 17, 2013, 03:36:08 PM »
I have a coworker who is due to have her first child soon.  I don't think there'll be any kind of formal baby shower (not really done here), but I was thinking it would be nice to get her something from our group and as part of a gift, I thought cute onesies with a message or image would be good.

The hook is that our group studies the effects of sleep deprivation, which as you know is a common problem with parents of newborns.  So, I'm looking for suggestions of funny sayings or quips about fatigue, sleep, no sleep, that sort of thing.  The geekier the better - we're researchers and engineers here.  And for what it's worth, coworker loved the "Go the F to sleep" book, so edgier humor is okay too (within the bounds of the filters!).

Any ideas?  Thanks!

"I'm On Night Shift"

"No Pay Differential for Night Shift - just warm baby to hold"

"I'm Howling Because I Miss You"

"Daddy's Turn"

"You're Walking the Floor Over Me" (title twist from an old song)

"In 20 Years, This Will Be A Fond Memory"

"Memories Are Made Of This"

"Short Term Memory?  Wazzat?"

Whoa   :)  I was just going to post a couple of the ideas I had to get the ball rolling but you guys are quick!

"Risk factors for fatigue:
5) Time of Day
4) Time since last sleep
3) Duration of last sleep
2) Workload
1) BABY"

Or putting one of the 7 point self-report sleepiness ratings scales with a line at the bottom:
"You're awake now, might as well collect some data!"

"Shhh , don't pull aggro!" Is pretty geeky.

Edgy?

I saw one the other day - "my mom's a total MILF"

My favorite, which wouldn't work here, are the identical twin ones - like 'Baby' and 'Ditto' or 'Pete' and 'Repeat'

There's the classic - "Got milk?"

I've seen this one, but can't remeber if it's - I'll sleep when I'm good and ready!

n00b level 1or human level 1(feel free to add more stats, they have a lousy low number of hit points and skill points but they have extra points in noise and do OK in charisma :_)

acute sleep deprivation (w/ picture of acute angle)

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Love these! Think Geek has some good ones. I sent my nephew the "I void warranties" tee for Christmas when he was 18 months. A few months prior he'd thrown a sippy cup at my Bro & SIL's brand new tv and cracked it.
