Let Sleeping Babies Lay
Don't ever underestimate the value of sleeping children...I mean ever. When Maggie sleeps we have somewhat normal lives...we shop, we manage to get to chores, we entertain bold and ambitious ideas...but when she doesn't, we calcify. It's hard to remember what it was like with Zo, but I suspect it was something similar. Dinner out with a baby, just not worth it. Shopping with a baby, near impossible to mange with any kind of grace. Sorting event, not worth the money. Long drive, manageable, but potentially unnerving. Have we embraced all of the above? Yes, all but one, and will we continue to do so? Probably, just 'cause we're fools, but also because we refuse to rot, and it's important that these kids mold to ur lifestyles and not the opposite. Even still, a sleeping baby is two feet and three inches short of heaven.
