There are so many things that I would invent, if I were an inventor, that would make life easier on me as a parent. One of those inventions would be a ‘soundproof sleep cage.’ It would be large enough for kids up to 3 or 4, fully padded bars, and a soundproof bubble surrounding it. It would also have a breakfast dispenser and a toy dispenser. If I had a soundproof sleep cage, I would be able to sleep in every morning without having to worry about what my kids are up to.
It’s the perfect answer to every parents sleep deprivation problem. It’s completely child safe. Put your child in a sleep cage and you won’t have to hear them scream in the middle of the night. Your older children will also not be able to climb out of bed and wake you up before you’re ready to get up.
You don’t need to limit your use of the soundproof sleep cage to night or naptimes either. Anytime one of the little rotters gets too loud or obnoxious, stick them in the sleep cage until they can behave nicely. If you want to finally go to the bathroom alone, pop them in the cage until you’re done. Trying to get dinner ready with little ones hanging around your knees begging to be picked up? Put them in the cage, prepare your meal and pull them out when it’s time to eat.
I’m sure there are still some kinks to work out on the whole idea. But you get the basic idea!
