Moms of Seldom Sleeping Infants...Take Heart!

I just had to share the encouraging news that some day, you too will have a day when you rise from bed on a summer morning like I did today...not to the sound of plaintiff crying, but because you've had a full night's rest and you're not tired any more.

You'll have time to make (and drink) a pot of coffee, while sitting on the patio reading the paper with your husband.

You'll check email, do dishes, and start a load of laundry.

You'll make your "to do" list for the day.

You'll prepare and eat a sensible breakfast, sitting at the table no less.

You'll glance at the clock...and wonder if your children are ever going to get out of bed!

I've been to this Promised Land...take heart, I never thought I'd see the day, but it's arrived!

I can't beleive you are that old...don't get used to the "peaceful" morning feeling - school will be starting soon. How was youth group?

This was nice to read today. I was thinking to myself today, "Will I ever get a full night's sleep again?" Oh, life with a 6 month old! :)
