A Walk in My Shoes

I have been terribly sick with strep throat for the past two days. Jeremy, being the oh so thoughtful man that he is (wink wink) decided he would stay home from work to help me out with taking care of Cooper during the night. I overheard him telling someone on the phone that he was really planning on just catching up on sleep. Huh.

So last night as we head to bed he says, "It can't be that bad. I don't know why you blow his getting up out of proportion." My blood boiled. Anger or fever? I don't know but I was hot!

So all though I slept very little last night each time Cooper woke up (10:00, 12:30, and 3:30) I lay very still and waited for Jeremy to get up and tend to him.

This morning Mr. Know-it-all's opinion of me has seemed to change! "Honey I am sorry," he said. "No wonder you are so tired all the time!"

Finally he sees!!

I don't know really what is going on with Cooper, but ever since we moved he has gotten up at least once, but most often twice each night. In the old house his crib was in my room and now he has his own bedroom. I don't know if this is it, or the fact that I am back at work and he misses me during the day. Regardless I am very proud that I haven't caved and put him in bed with me!!

So all though I still feel like poo, I do feel slightly better due to some justification of my whining for the past couple of months. Thanks Jeremy for stepping up and taking care of Cooper for one night! You know it's about time! The child is 9 1/2 months old! :)
