When you’re up all night with a toddler, there isn’t much to be thankful for. But last night when Baby A woke up at 12:30 AM and didn’t seem interested in going to bed until 4 AM, I was thankful for M.
As I mentioned yesterday, I have a good amount of work on my plate. And when this happens I tend to get caught up in my to-do lists. Last night as my son decided that he would rather play than sleep I seethed. Didn’t he know I wanted to be up at 5 to work? How dare he not sleep. It wasn’t my finest mommy moment.
But M., even in his dog-tired state, made sure A. was happy—even giggling at some points. We had a long night. This morning M. woke up, got dressed and went to work. He’s a trooper—a truly dedicated dad.
