Sleeping baby pictures might not be very well received right now.  Trust me, she doesn't do this often.

For the funny mom.  The lonely mom.  The wide-awake mom.  

We're #upallnight.

Hi!  I'm Lizzie.  Wife to Nate, mama to Betsy, former connoisseur of a good night's sleep.  I'm so, so glad you're here.

Especially in the early days of Betsy-hood, it was so demoralizing to be awake for the fourth or fifth time in a night and have no new content to read.  I depended on my phone to keep me awake and it felt like I had reached the end of the internet long before the end of the night.  Blogs were packed up 'til morning, everyone else was asleep (not that I needed another reminder), and we joked that I needed a friend in Europe so I would have someone to talk to.  I wish there had been a place like this for me to visit -- to read great things, find friends, advice and inspiration, and know that I wasn't the only one who was awake at that crazy hour.

You are doing great work.  Crucial work.  Holy work.  Hard work.  And we'll be right here beside you, from 11p-7a, making it just a little bit more fun to be up all night.

Technology isn't my strong suit -- and I'm a mama, just like you.  Please be patient as I get this up and running.
