Sleep

February 6, 2009

There is the most amazing nurse who works in the Nursery at the hospital.  I remember her from our last visit here, and she is perfection.  I mean, if Normal Rockwell painted a picture of a ‘Grandmother’, she would be it:  soft-spoken, white hair, gentle hands, easy gait.  When you are utterly tired and can’t explain why, she comes to your room and smiles and says, “You need to rest now,” and she takes the baby away to pamper it in a room full of sleeping babies.  When the baby gets hungry a couple of hours later, she brings the bundle back and gently wakes you.

    We had a nurse like that too, when we were in the hospital. I wanted to ask her to come home with us and live with us, but Seth wouldn’t let me. Something about “hormones” and “crazy talk.”
