Supermoms & Sleep Safety
At least three or four times each night I spring out of bed, monitor in hand and run to his room to startle him awake, just to be sure. It is likely the kid will not know a true "good night's sleep" until he is in his mid-teens but tough turkey, I say.
In the night I am so grateful now for the sound of his cry, so alive, so strong. Sure, I am sleep deprived but it no longer matters. We are home, all under one roof.
And his waking hours, oh I adore his waking hours. His laugh and his squeal, so beautiful. He talks to us in animated tones. He has so much to say, no chance that this Monkey will not be given his fair piece of the family pie.
I, for one, multi-task much less. As a result, much less gets accomplished. My house is quite often a disaster zone, toys strewn about and dishes piled in the sink, but I know that my attention is where it needs to be, on my kids.
I think we did a good thing by getting the word out.
Love to you all.
