You can choose your friends but never your family

I made a friend. She is someone who went to middle school with my husband. She is sweet and kind and funny and thoughtful. She had a baby a year and five days ago.
She is currently in law school and had her mother watching the baby. Due to some health issues, her mother could not watch the baby. Which left my friend in quite a pickle because she needed someone to watch the baby.
So now I am playing with a year old two to three times a week. It is delightful and exhausting. I am getting middle aged and babies require more energy than my five year old and ten year old combined.
Did I tell you Kidlet is making dinner on Saturdays now? Because specialization is for insects.
And this baby is loud and funny and chubby and fun. And her name has my name in it, so we are cosmically linked. But it is very tiring.

I realize that on average I do not get two consecutive nights of quality sleep.
I have had a bit of a cough this week and after one good night of sleep, I feel better. So if I got two nights of good sleep this stupid cough would go away. That has not been the case.
Last night, Chuy woke me us by screaming that SHE WAS HUNGRY.
This morning I was awoken to her screaming about her tangles in her hair.
I just want two consecutive nights of quality sleep.
