Seven Hours

Seven hours.

Seh-vehn.

7!

You know what rhymes with Seven? Heaven.

You knew that. You also know what this is about, don't you?

In bed at 7:30, nursed at 11, crawled into bed at midnight and slept (Well, I did!) until 6 am. Eric pat-pat-patted the twins to sleep again at 2 and 3 am whilst I snoozed on, oblivious. Too deeply asleep to hear, to notice, to respond. The first time in a year. (No exaggeration. Truly. )

Seven.

Never have I loved a number more.

Happy May Day!

Before I had kids I was fond of saying, 'oh, i HAVE to have at least eight hours of sleep a night or I just can't function.' famous last words.

I'm getting old and boring, because the best thing I can think of is a good night's sleep...
