Why I married him

He's looking down at me in all my raised knee, ice packed, pajamma glory and says thoughtfully, "You look hot."

"I do?"

"Your skin looks bright."


"Yes, you look cute bebe."

"Must be the fact that I get to sleep through the night for the next 6 weeks!"

Notes to self:
1. beauty rest is not a myth.
2. The Gods of Sleep Through the Night have not visited in 4 nights.

The Gods of no sleep have been regulars at our place. If it's not one of the kids (who still take turns cause you can't all be up at the same time), it is the dog - who was supposed to be weaned off the pain meds but is now back on them so that I can sleep.

So, all you need to do to get six weeks of sleep throughs is have an operation. I think that only works for wonderful hubby's like Dave - didn't work for me after the c-sect.

Jacqui - I truly don't know how you do it all. Poor doggy too - but that would put me over the edge having to be woken up by the dog!!!

It doesn't hurt to have a doctor mandate that I absolutely may NOT put more than 20% of my weight on my foot and so banishing me to using crutches. Props help in this case! The crutches remind him that I have issues at the moment. If you ever have a c-sec again make sure they send you home with crutches!

I am hoping you get some rest on a regular basis soon!
