Dog House

Last night I was in one of my bratty, trying to be funny and super annoying moods... I think I got this from my mother... the whole "I'm so mad at you but really just think I'm super funny"... 

 I was exhausted and ready for the family to go to sleep. 
Craig then mentions he has an important phone call he has to stay up for... 
This important phone call consisted of "stock talk" with his buddies. They basically formed a mini investment club. I found out once again what a huge nerd my husband is.
Thinking he needs less finance in his life and more balance.... During his phone call I laid a pillow and blanket on the couch and wheeled my daughters crib into the family room.
I then locked my bedroom door and had my first good night sleep in 5 months.
I figured if he could stay up to talk about investment strategy- he wouldn't mind doing the 4 AM feeding.

It was the best idea I ever had.  I feel like a new woman.

I should mention he didn't have to go to work today... so I'm not super evil.
And I should also mention that I feel very lucky that I was able to sleep, knowing my husband would take good care of my baby.  He is a very good daddy.
