This happened a couple of nights ago:
Me: “I just can’t get her to stop crying.” (Lily is screaming now)
Benjamin: “Want me to take her?” Now mind you, he’s already gotten up with her and is going on three hours of sleep.
Me: yes! Yes! YES!!! “Um, are you sure you’re ok with that?”
Benjamin: “Yeah” (about 5 minutes later) “Are you jealous that she wants me more than she wants you? That she stops crying when I take her?”
Me: Thinking to myself, silly boy, are you crazy? Why would I be jealous?? I get sleep and you don’t! so instead I say, “Nope, I’m glad she loves you!”
