Last night was delicious. There was a time in my life when describing a night as delicious would've meant naughty, but that time has passed. No, last night, we SLEPT. All.night.LONG! It was wonderful and amazing and how I have missed sleep. It was unseasonably cool last night, so we opened all the windows, which I know helped with Luke's cough. We had to close our window at 10:30 when some idiot started shooting off fireworks, but we were able to keep Luke's window open, as well as the other upstairs' windows. There is nothing I love better than sleeping when it is cool, piled under three or four blankets.
And sleep we did! Until 5:30, when Luke woke up, came into our bed, nursed, and FELL BACK ASLEEP until 8. Even if it was a fluke, I feel amazing today. The best part of it is that for the first time in a month, Luke is acting like Luke. He didn't wake up crabby, he hasn't been mean or thrown a temper tantrum, he's just played and ran and giggled. More than us, he needed this night of sleep. The only downside to today is that I have to go into work for three hours of curriculum work. The plus to this is that my department chair just had a baby girl earlier this month, so I am crossing my fingers that she brings her along. And needs someone to hold her most of those three hours. Holding a baby could salvage the fact that I have to work over the summer, but really, with a full night of sleep behind me, I feel ready to take on the work!
My happy boy, and me with a double chin that I SWEAR does not exist in real life, yet always seems to jump into photos
