The three laws of sleep as applied to a household that contains a new baby are remarkably similar to those involving entropy. To wit:
1. You can’t win.
2. You can’t break even.
3. You can’t get out of the game.
Also note that while sleep cannot really be created, it can easily be destroyed.
HOMEWORK: Given the three laws of baby sleep, what is the individual probability that, while Misty was feeding Liza at 4:00 A.M., Eli got up? What is the individual probability that, while Stephen was rocking Liza to sleep at 4:30 A.M., Eli got up again? What is the combined probability?
