Today we have a guest confession from my amazing mom, Barb. My mom waited to tell me this story until I was a mom and it cracked me up-too funny and all too familiar as I woke up the other day not remembering how I put Alice back to bed but she was safely in her crib, asleep…:
“When I was a young mom, the few weeks leading up to Melissa’s birth were very hot days. I didn’t get much rest, very uncomfortable, back pain, you all get the picture. We brought our beautiful, healthy daughter home and started the business of being a family. She was a good baby but I had trouble breast-feeding and she seemed to be eating every hour or so. One night I heard her crying, got up and was rocking her in my arms on the bed. I couldn’t get her to stop crying, went to rearrange her in my arms and discovered that I was soothing my pillow.
I was dreaming that I had gotten up…yikes, no wonder she was still crying. I didn’t admit that story until Melissa had Lucy, who could believe anyone could be that tired except a new mom? I’m glad there were no lasting effects! Except a giggle or two!”
