Alarm clock rings, pitch dark. It has been a restful five hours straight.
I tiptoe, not to wake the tiny rascal.
Gotta pump, dress, make a lunch, then race to the OR before the sun comes up.
If he nursed again now it would be a hassle
Running to the bus, breakfast on the go, eight cases later, dinner is calling. I’m going home.
Alarm clock rings, “Mom! Get up. We can’t be late.” First day of Kindergarten, a brand new start.
I am excitedly awakened by the rascal.
Committee meetings, OR call night, and a Code Blue rounds out the 16 hour shift. Thank God for the nanny!
