Caffeine induced insomnia

The husband snores
I can hear it through the baby monitor
It's chilly and dark down here
with the ones I love upstairs
fast asleep
But sleep is elusive
for mamas who drink
caffeine at 11 pm
The baby will be up soon
and fussy
I'll feed her
then we'll snuggle down
in our bed
and try to sleep until

You are a poet....ive always loved that about you. Funny thing i read this im sipping hot coffee at 10:45 at night. Why do we do this to ourselves. bennett has an ear infection and i know its gonna be a long coffee..the blogging....are my friends till the little whimpering sound of "mama" comes from his room. How is Cora's reflux these days?
