The following happened this past Sunday:
I hear my name being called from a distance, “Mommy!!!! Mommy!!!”
“Are you OK?” I respond.
“MOMMY!!! Help me! Come quick!!!!”
Just then, hubby turns over, just happening to bump me as he turns over. I awaken, heart pounding, partially because of being bumped suddenly and partially because I am distressed by B’s cries. I realize I’ve been hearing B’s real cries in my sleep. Hubby is awake but pretending to be asleep and hoping that his little “bump” will wake me up enough to go deal with her. It’s still sort of dark outside, so I turn over to see what time it is.
Ugh…4:45AM…on a Sunday. I look over at hubby who is fake snoring.
“I know you’re pretending to be asleep…” I grumble as I hoist my legs out of bed. I “accidentally” bump his butt as I get out of bed. He stifles a chuckle.read more
