I want the baby to go to sleep because...
...it's been a long day with bodily excretions and screams. And crying from both of us.
...I'm so ready for a shower.
...I want to eat a snack in peace.
...I want to read another chapter.
...I want to get at least 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep without a baby in my bed.
...I want silence.
...I want a margarita.
...I want life to slow down during my down time.
...I don't want to think about what tomorrow is going to be like.
...I want to snuggle up with my husband without any interruptions.
But when I do get those things because Vera is finally sleeping soundly, all I want to do is go in her nursery, pick her up in my arms and rock and kiss her sweet face until she wakes up and smiles at me.
Quite the conundrum at the end of the day :)
