Things I'm Thinking as I'm Trying to Get My Kid to Sleep

An almost-one-year old with a stuffy nose might as well be the end of the world. Here's what's running through my head as I'm sitting here rocking and singing with him, going on hour two.
  1. Does he have a fever?
    I don't want to turn the light on to check.
  2. Are his eyes closed?
    Or is he faking sleep and the second I move he's gonna start screaming again?
  3. I was totally gonna get 8 hours of sleep tonight.
    Make it seven. Wait. Six.
  4. Maybe his doggie jammies are too tight?
    Nothing worse than tight doggie jammies.
  5. My husband is asleep in bed right now.
    😑😑😑
  6. I guess I should be answering emails as long as I'm here.
    Nah forget it, let's make a list.
