Oh Suse this sounds so familiar (every night kind of familiar!). Except ours is more like:

E: Snoring like a freight train at top speed, ridiculously loud, no rhythm or anything that you could kind of get used to hearing.
Me: E stop snoring
E: I'm not even asleep yet!
Me: Oh yes you were! Grrrrrrrrrrr!

Or

E: Snoring like neanderthal man's mating call
Me: E stop snoring
E: But you're snoring too!
Me: I haven't even fallen asleep yet due to you snoring! And how could you even hear me over your own snoring! Grrrrrrrrrrrr!

I'm feeling your pain. Especially after tending to a newborn every couple of hours. The LAST thing you need is to hear someone thoroughly enjoying their sleep!

I have similar conversations trying to get teenagers up for school.

Me: Jim.
Jim: Euuuggggghhhh.
Me: It's time to get up for school.
Jim: OK
(snoring)
Me: Jim
Jim: Euuuggggghhhh.

....see where this is going?

We have similar conversations as well. They stopped once Melissa started using earplugs. I'd suggest that, but I suppose that's not ok with a new baby, is it?

For the record, the earplugs work great...except when Craig is congested. Then I go sleep in the spare room. :) I just wish they made plugs that blocked more than 30dB!!!
