It's a mom thing...

I'm wondering if I'm alone in this...   After a night of little sleep, somewhere around 4am-ish, I finally nod off.  At 7am you awaken to big kids moving around in the house but the baby (well, 1 yr old) is still quiet as a mouse.  You worry somethings wrong, but are so sleepy and tired that you have a conversation with yourself in your head that goes something like this:

Uh-oh... he's still quiet.  I wonder why. ***  Oh he's probably as tired as you are.  Go back to sleep. *** Maybe something is wrong.  I should check. *** You worry all the time.  Sleeeeeep.  You need it.  ***  Why isn't B getting up to check?  Is he still asleep to?  He slept ALL night! *** Something HAS to be wrong.  The baby never sleeps this late. ***  You always do this.  Nothing is ever wrong.  He's 1 now.  Sids is sooooooo  unlikely. ***  But what if... *** SLEEEEEEEPPPPP...

Anybody else argue with yourself?  And then ultimately get up to check on a sleeping baby (or 1 yr old) who WAS sleeping peacefully until he heard you open his door?

I just KNOW I can't be alone here!!!
