Carrie Underwood's husband, Mike Fisher, might want to do some thinking *sings* before he sleeps.
It seems his wife is giving him a little bit of the stink eye while he lays there snoozing, as the expecting mom lays awake.
"Dear pregnancy insomnia, Please go bother someone else... like dads," the "Cry Pretty" singer tweeted early Friday morning – way too early. "Go bother dads. My husband sleeps so soundly and peacefully and I’ve been awake for 2 hours (so far).
"How is this fair?" she added. "Imma lose my mind!"
Lose her mind and a little bit of her money thanks to a late-night shopping spree.
"Worst part about insomnia = waking up this morning to see what I bought online while I was up," Underwood shared with followers about five hours after her original tweet. "I just realized I spent over $600 on make up. #SeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime #HelpMe #TakeAwayMyShoppingApps #ButThereWasASale"

Savor the moments. Yes, parenthood is the most exhausting job on the planet. Yes, your house is a mess, the laundry's piled up, and the dog needs to be walked. But your kid just laughed. Enjoy it now - it will be over far too fast.

Ah yes, "there was a sale." Famous last words.
Underwood announced her family was expecting in August on Instagram. She revealed she's having a boy at the CMA Awards in last month. The new baby will make a big brother of Underwood and Fisher's first son, Isaiah, born in 2015.

Don't clip your child's wings. Your toddler's mission in life is to gain independence. So when she's developmentally capable of putting her toys away, clearing her plate from the table, and dressing herself, let her. Giving a child responsibility is good for her self-esteem (and your sanity!).

Set up a "gratitude circle" every night at dinner. Go around the table and take turns talking about the various people who were generous and kind to each of you that day. It may sound corny, but it makes everyone feel good.

Serve a food again and again. If your child rejects a new dish, don't give up hope. You may have to offer it another six, eight, or even 10 times before he eats it and decides he likes it.

Encourage daddy time. The greatest untapped resource available for improving the lives of our children is time with Dad - early and often. Kids with engaged fathers do better in school, problem-solve more successfully, and generally cope better with whatever life throws at them.
