This morning I was startled awake by the light. The morning light. I rubbed the night’s fog from my eyes and glanced quickly at the clock. ” 7:44am”, it glowed and my heart began to pound. I scrambled to the end of the bed to find the baby monitor…quickly hit the button to activiate the “video” option and spotted Corrigan, little jammie-footed feet in the air, mouth moving as he sang a sweet morning song…not a thing wrong with the world.
He gave me the only thing that he could for Christmas. The gift of sleeping through the night. One of only five in his entire nearly-19 months of life. There was no reason to panic…he was fine.
I was fine.
Except that my head hurt. From too much sleep.
Irony, oh how I love thee.
Merry Christmas Eve friends and family.
May your holiday be blessed and your memories be sweet.
