Rick jinxed us.
Joe has been sleeping through the night for the past month and a half. Its been heaven. More than heaven, its like imagining the greatest thing in the world, and then having that thing. We finally could rely on a solid 8 hours of sleep.
Throughout this month and a half, Rick and I were fully aware of what was happening, but we made damn sure we didn't talk about it. If you talk about it and acknowledge it, you jinx it. So we were silently enjoying our full nights of sleep, and it was everything we hoped it would be.
Then it happened.
Rick talked about it. Maybe he thought enough time had gone by and we were now out of the jinxing time frame. Maybe he just missed waking up in the middle of the night to a WIDE AWAKE baby.
Maybe he's just an ass.
I'm not kidding you, the VERY next night after Rick spoke about the unmentionable, Joe stopped sleeping through the night. It started with a 4 am wide awake session, and then it was a 2:30 am wide awake session and last night it was a 3:30 wide awake session.
Now, how do you undo this? Do I have to make a potion with Rick's blood, dragon breath and the hair of a virgin (do those exist anymore!)?
