Momma's Night

I'm tired, ya'll.  I had too good of a time last night and now I'm paying for it.  I worked late, then went to a baby shower and ate some great food, indulged in Heavenly Cupcakes, and a few too many tumblers of Pinot Grigot.  When I got home at 10:30, both the kiddos were in bed and Hubs had it all under control.  In fact, he didn't even call me one time with a question, or a complaint.  It might have helped that I told him not to call me unless he is dialing 911 at the same time, but seriously.  He handled it.  All. of. it. 

I think I'm guilty of not giving him enough credit.  I assume that he will be overwhelmed by the stress and energy it takes to handle a rambunctious 4 year old and a needy 1 year old.  I find myself protecting him from that by always taking at least 1 kid with me where ever I go.  Divide and conquer is the way we usually roll.  And last night I was this close ::one inch between thumb and pointer:: to taking Cam with me to the baby shower, but Hubs stepped up and said, "No.  You go.  Have fun."  So, that's what I did....that's exactly what I did!  I lovie him.  I love that he protected my "me" time and let me just enjoy a night with the girls, and a glass (or 3) of wine.  What he doesn't realize is that now that I know he has it all under control, I just might be taking more nights to myself more often....Shhhh.  Don't tell daddy.

And then when I got home.  I had to peep in on my lovie because looking at her through the monitor just wouldn't cut it, and this is what I saw:

I love sleeping baby pictures.  So quiet, and peaceful, and sooo unlike how she is when she is awake.

I'm glad you had a good time! I love sleeping pictures and I have been tempted to take a pic like that these last few nights. But, I reluctantly never do it! I need to :)
