Ben was gone this evening, which is unusual thank goodness because that would mean it was just me and the children, and there are so many of them. I had them all tucked in their beds asleep by 7:30 because I am AWESOME. I cleaned up dinner quickly and spent a good half an hour mopping the floor in the hallway/kitchen/great room because I put Bio Oil on my feet last night (because they have been totally neglected since I had Cooper, and my massage therapist was horrified by the sand paper state of my heels), and when I went to get Cooper at 2, I left a trail of greasy footprints everywhere. (Cooper, by the way, is not hungry at 2, he just wants to come sleep with me. And I have to sleep on my side, facing him the whole night. If I roll over, he rolls too and grabs 2 handfuls of my hair and tried to eat it.)
By 8:30, I was sitting on my bed, checking my email en route to the elliptical. The next thing I knew, the garage door was opening at 9:30, and I was asleep on my face, which gave me awesome 90's bangs.
No grading the pile of essays in my bag, no working out, and no blogging. Luckily (for YOU), I am so jazzed from my nap that I decided to upload some pictures from my phone. Here they are and now I'm off to enjoy Secrets from the Grave, a simply terrible and therefore wonderful Tami Hoag thriller I cannot put down (book 2 in a 3-book series!). I loaded my iPad with thrillers-- Patricia Cornwell! Lisa Gardner!-- in anticipation of the insomnia I always develop at 5 months post partum. But this time, I can sleep whenever I want to! And my milk has yet to vanish this month. Weird, huh?
