Old Days

I feel like the mom of a newborn
I am exhausted
 Leah has been getting up every hour
if not every hour,
every other hour
I have resorted to sleeping
in the guest bed with her
which means I get no sleep at all
now I am sick
the kind of sick
where you ache
all the way down to your toes sick
I hope she starts sleeping
through the night again soon
very soon
she is lucky I think she is so adorable
even with bedhead
especially with bedhead
she likes to wrap her arms around me
and tell me she loves me at night
even if it means I get no sleep
I have to admit I like that part of getting no sleep
 her little arms wrapped around my neck
make me smile
