That Mom Thing: Last night I was thinking about having a little newborn and waking up in the night. It's amazing how I can sleep through John's alarm and getting ready (including our crazy noisy shower door) but a little newborn peep can wake me from another room.

20 minutes later, I went to wake Maggie for her evening potty break and as soon as I went into the hallway, I could tell that Sienna had made a dirty diaper in her sleep. With the door closed, and the recently-put-out candle in the air, I could still tell.

Dalton wonders how I can tell if he didn't brush his teeth, or scrub his hands well enough, or is wearing yesterday's dirty socks, or didn't finish the food he was supposed to eat in the other room.

These are the mom things.
