Who Needs Sleep

Ellie's a beautiful child, but sometimes I wonder if maybe we didn't listen to Bare Naked Ladies a little too much when Sarahlynn was pregnant. When it's 4am, she's totally relaxed in your arms, listening to lullabyes, all you want to do is drift off to sleep... but her eyes are WIDE AWAKE... you can't help but wonder what she's thinking about.
Who needs sleep?
(well you're never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(tell me what's that for)
Who needs sleep?
(be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War)
Second World War indeed...

I have to think that there's some deep philosophical thinking going on behind those soft blue eyes when she's relaxed in your arms at 4am... wide awake. Maybe she's figuring out how to isolate and identify the Higgs Boson, or make a lasting Israeli/Palenstinian peace, or cure her Downs. You never know...
