Grant recalls when her children were younger and she – desperate for sleep – would institute a game of Hospital, telling her children, "'Mommy's the patient. I'll lie here and you can make me all better.'... I remember sitting up from the game, covered in Hello Kitty and Batman Bad-Aids, having deeply traveled into REM sleep and vivid dreams," Grant wrote. "I woke up feeling like a new woman.... Now, with my kids' ages all in the double digits, I'm no longer in such desperate need for a few moments of rest. For a chunk of the day, the house is quiet. My days go by quickly and, as I repeatedly tell my friends with younger children, it is easier."
