This morning, Brian kissed me good-bye at about 6:00 in the morning. He said “did you sleep good?” I said “yes, did you?” He chuckled “oh my gosh, yes.”
It didn’t hit me right away, it took a few moments to process what he meant. It finally hit me, “wait…did Elijah sleep through the night? How many times did he wake up crying? How many times did I feed him?”
He slept through the night. Completely and totally, without a single disturbance, he slept through the night, from 8:30 at night until 6:30 in the morning.
He slept through the night. And so did I. And so did Brian and so did Anna and Noah and at seven this morning, I was holding Anna, like a baby, she’s so cuddly and cute when she first wakes up, I felt so renewed and amazing.
After so many days of sickness and cloudy, dreariness outside, the sky is so blue and the sun is so bright and I even showered before taking the kids to school which is a bigger miracle than Eli sleeping through the night. (okay, not really but for real.)
I took Eli back to the doctor yesterday and sure enough, his ear infection was back. (or still there?) So a new, stronger antibiotic began. I think I can tell the difference already, even though he’s the snottiest baby I have ever seen in my life. (speaking of which, I think he hid his syringe, have you seen it, I can’t find it anywhere?)
Also, both Brian and I have been in the mood to organize. Our house is so over-the-top cluttered and disorganized and it makes me sick and sad because we have a nice house but it’s filled with crap. So, we are getting rid of a lot of crap and organizing the rest of the crap. Brian has been working in our garage which barely fit our car and was embarrassing to have our door open. But now, it’s almost all better!
and I’ve been working on the inside, the laundry room is spotless, kitchen drawers and cabinets are cleaned out (some of them, not all of them) and each room is slowly looking and feeling better.
And so today begins my holiday baking, starting with Pdubs cinnamon rolls. I’m excited because last year I made approximately 2,912 of her cinnamon rolls and didn’t have a rolling pin. Well…I received one for Christmas last year and haven’t used it yet…until today.
WATCH OUT, DOUGH.
Here’s the thing. I dropped the kids off and thought, wow, today is either going to be so ding dang amazing that I’m going to explode at the end of the night from all of the goodness or this moment right here will be the high point and the rest of the day is going to suck.
Either way, I got to have that goodness today and I am so, so glad.
But I’m not going to lie, I really hope to explode tonight.
