Today was my birthday.
There was no trip to the pub after work. No wine bar with wife. No over the top meal in a TV chef’s restaurant. There was no fancy meal at home, no streamers, no fanfare, no expensive electronic gifts.
There was no sleep.
There was a sick little girl, a very tired wife and a sleepless infant.
Then all my ladies fell asleep, one of them on my lap breathing softly.
There was a beautiful quiet infant
A little girl resting
And a brave wife recharging
Could have been worse.
NB: To those that have asked thank you. Life is as good as it can be after you have double the amount of kids you had a month ago. Regular posts will return soon.
