Needy morning.

Me, “Would you be interested in spoiling me this morning?  I don’t want to get out of bed.  It was a rough night.”

Brian, “Why?”

Me, “Oh, peeing.  My sinuses feel pressure.  I hurt right here (stretching below the belly).  And a charley horse kept wanting to get my left leg.  Would you make me breakfast?”

Brian, “Sure.”

Me, “Can I be specific?”

Brian, “You always are.”

Me, “Two scrambled eggs, salsa, guacamole, cheese, greek yogurt…”

Brian, “Slow down.”

Me, in slow motion, “Twwwwwooooooo scrammmmmmbled eeeeeeeeeegggggggggs…”

He sped me up and I completed my egg order adding, “…and a piece of toast with some kind of jam or jelly.  And maybe coffee or something.  But could you bring me a cookie to start?  And my lap top?”

I can hear my husband in the kitchen right now.  Sports radio is blasting.  He’s taken care of both cats, the dog and there’s currently a chocolate chip cookie in my belly (and another within arm’s reach).

Last night I had to confess, “I’m really going to miss having an excuse to be needy.”

Brian, “Oh, you’ll still be needy.”

Me, “I know.  I’m just going to miss having the excuse.”

    If taking care of a baby and survivng on less sleep than you ever have before isn’t a good excuse, I don’t know what is.

    I agree with Sarah. You will get better sleep than while pregnant but less of it. Brian should get an award! Here here for husbands that take care of us! I can’t wait to meet your little blessing!!! Soon! I’m going to make you scones. Any flavor you prefer?

    What a wonderful husband (who will be an amazing role model for your little boy!) I’m going to make my husband start reading your blog so he can get a few pointers 😉

    You can continue to have the excuse, make more babies.

    Boy, didn’t really know anyone else who loves scones.
    I entirely agree!

    You don’t need an excuse. listen to Brian and respond in kind, which I’m sure you do.
