Why my husband rocks:

So, if there is one thing I'm great at, it's turing my kids into horrible sleepers, which translates into 4 years of waking up a million times a night.

David told me he didn't get me anything for Valentine's day which made me really mad (that is the day he proposed for crying out loud!) It wasn't so much the no gift, but that he didn't put time into thinking about it. I had planned a party for my grandma's 80th birthday (happy birthday Nanny!) so we had planned on just going out for dessert. He had a headache, so I suggested we just do it another night, but he insisted on going.

We got in the car, started driving to Chilli's and decided we weren't hungry, so he pulled over in a parking lot (no, don't get your hopes up this is a family show) and he said, "well, I did get you a card." So, he pulled out a hotel key card. He said, "I thought you might enjoy a good night's sleep." He told me he had packed my bags and had them in the car. I was pretty excited. When we started driving to Wal-Mart to get a few things, I teared up when I realized what a thoughtful gift it was. I'm telling you, a full night of sleep was worth way more than anything else he could have gotten me. NINE STRAIGHT HOURS OF SLEEP!!!!

So, he is offically back on the good list.
