What a night! I come home after the news and could not resist watching the Rielle Hunter Oprah interview on the DVR. So it’s nearly midnight when I go upstairs to change and do my bedtime routine before lying down. Dave was stirring and asked me the time. He stayed up, which was nice. Then a massive hamstring cramp came on in his left leg and he could do nothing but stay on his back and attempt to relax the muscle. I dutifully grabbed the heating pad, wrapped it around the spot, raced down and brought up a banana per his request and whipped out the laptop. Would you believe in 3 minutes I called up a video demonstration of how to treat a muscle cramp? This led to another trip downstairs to fill a bottled water with electrolyte-infused drink mix in an effort to rehydrate him. As I was playing nurse, a loud bump came from the next room. It was Sissy falling out of bed and landing between her twin and one side of the bunk bed built over it. Poor thing! She was initially inconsolable. So there I was with Dave sprawled across the bed, Charlotte beside him with tears streaming and an up-too-late experience that led me to desperately need a nap before work today. Thankfully, I got one. Oh, and Thomas slept through the whole thing–for once.
