When you have a new baby your life literally gets turned upside down. All of the sudden you find yourself awake at ungodly hours every night. At first I hated it. I felt like a walking zombie. As I adjusted I started to really like being awake at 3:30am.
The truth is our house is kind of beautiful in the middle of the night. It’s quiet and calm. Everything is covered in the blue light from our TV. Donovan is usually pretty peaceful so I get to stare at him and trip out on the fact that I helped make him.
However, there is a bad side to being awake in the wee hours. I find myself dangerously close to believing what the infomericals are telling me. You laugh now but you won’t be laughing when I’m a real estate millionaire and I have the perfect six pack abs.
