It's 5:00 am right now. The diapers are on their second wash now, as we had forgotten to finish them last night. There are only three small lights on: the one over the stove, which I think The Huz turns on as a comfort more than anything else; the lamp on his desk, which glows with just enough light to change a diaper; and the light of my laptop, which bathes my daughter in soft white as she nurses and I browse the Internet. The Huz stays up in the living room for a little while, but he has wisely decided to go back to bed, because he will be on duty later this morning. The Kid has fallen asleep on my lap - she smiles every once in a while in her sleep, and it makes me smile. The refrigerator hums, the wall clock ticks, and The Huz lightly snores in the other room.
I am content.
This is a wonderful adventure.
