Ok, so it's been raining here since YESTERDAY morning, so to answer my own blog title question..."no, it is not." BUT, if we were not in the middle of The Great Flood and the sun was actually shining which I am afraid it may never do again if it doesn't stop raining [ deep breath ]... well, I believe it would be shining a little brighter than usual.
Wanna know why?
MY CHILD SLEPT FOR EIGHT HOURS LAST NIGHT. Oh yeah. Happy dance. Happy dance, people. The birds are singing, the sun (should be) shinin' and the heavens are pouring forth with rays of sleep-induced relief over our household. (side note: I never thought that just getting a full night's sleep would affect my ability to refrain from the overuse of descriptive phrases. But that sleep stuff? Y'all, it's good. It's so very good for the mama soul.)
Baby J. just turned four months old and the pediatrician suggested adding a couple tablespoons of rice cereal to his nighttime bottle to both tide him over as well as help him with reflux issues. So, I tried it. And lo and behold, it worked. At least last night it did. We shall see if the magic wears off and we revert back to sleeplessness. But for one magical night, in a dimly lit bedroom somewhere south of Nashville, Tennessee, a baby slept. And a mama slept.
Let the people say..."Amen."
