Blessed Sleep

Remember how I said sleeping through the night would be a great Christmas Present?
'Member that?

Well Mr. Samson has slept through the night but I'm so conditioned to waking up that I cannot yet sleep more than 3 or 4 hours at a time, and if I hear no sounds coming from his room I wake up even more and think Holy Crap! Has he really been sleeping this long!? Is he OK? Can he really sleep this long? Is he alright!? And then I get to thinking other thinky thoughts about my day or the day coming up or about my clever plans for world domination and I can't go back to sleep.

But we are getting close. I cannot tell you how happy I am that Mr. Sam is feeling better. He is back to his "old self". We've had two wonderful days where he has slept (mostly) through the night, has no cold and his teeth don't seem to bother him. He ate good and he slept good and we're back on "schedule".

Just in time, for Grandma is coming tomorrow and on Friday night, Amazing Man and I are getting a night OUT. We're staying the night at Marywood where it's nice and quiet. No TV's and no loud talking or other noises allowed in the hallways of the retreat wing! We're going to have a quiet dinner and a quiet evening and a silent night and we're not getting out of bed in the morning until we feel like it!! YEE HAW!


  • Don't get too excited. About the time you get used to sleeping more, Mr. Samson will pull a swicheroo on you! :)

    Have fun on your night out on the retreat center! That sounds like a restful place to go.

    (My word verification word is "uchnzle"! Isn't that a wonky word?)

  • I remember when my kids were infants and I wouldn't hear a peep from them. I'd get so worried I'd have to go check on them. They were always fine. I think it's an instinctual thing. But, even now, if I don't hear from them from the time I put them to bed until I go to bed I get worried. I'll often times check to see if they're breathing. Paranoia, but I think it's a mom thing. You're not alone.
    Have fun away. You're lucky Sam has grandmas who are willing to spend that kind of time with him so you can get away. Enjoy!.
