I Love My Husband
This morning I woke up totally disoriented.
My husband was nowhere to be found. My bedroom door was closed, so where was he?
I got up, placed Brynlie into her crib and darted out of my bedroom.
And there I found him. He was trying to change Madelyn who had soaked through her entire diaper. *note to self: no beverages for Madelyn at bedtime.
I knew he had to be tired. When I was awake feeding Brynlie at midnight he was playing an Xbox 360 video game. Something with guns, loud noises and one of those where I can't distract him at all. I'm pretty sure a lot of you can sympathize with me on this one.
Okay. Back to my point--after all this post is about how much I love him, not about how much I despise Xbox and video games.
So, he then made the girls breakfast. He asked me to feed Brynlie and then get the girls dressed.
Get this: he was taking all three of them to the park so I could sleep.
This is amazing for two reasons. The first being I haven't been brave enough to all three of the girls to the park by myself yet. The second is because I have been so tired and for him to do this? It was the sweetest thing that anyone has done for me in a long time.
And for anyone wondering what to do for a mom with a baby? Give her the gift of sleep--best gift ever.
