Father Knows Best

Yesterday I was trying to get the peanut down for bed for well over an hour. Needless to say it was not going well. I asked Donnie to come and swaddle him. (Donnie does, what I like to refer to as, the death swaddle. He can swaddle the peanut SO tight, and the peanut loves it. I can't ever get it as tight as he does.)

So Donnie swaddles him, and he is still super upset, so I thought I would rock him for a bit. I started to rock him, then Donnie told me to just put him down because rocking him will just prolong the crying.

I did not tell him this, but I was thinking that he was a complete moron. I have been working with kids for the majority of my life, and I know what works and does not work. Or at least that was what I was telling myself.

Being the good, and submissive wife that I am, I put the peanut down. I only mainly did this to prove Donnie wrong. But you know what happened? I put him down, he gave a couple of whimpers and then he slept for 6 hours! 6 hours people!!!!! How crazy is that.

So I had to eat humble pie, and tell Donnie that father does know best.

Hilarious! I love your honesty.

Can I come and visit?!

Donnie said...

Aww! Honey, I appreciate your honesty and I really appreciate your compliments sweetheart. But I'd bet that last night had more to do with luck than me really knowing whats best. I love you, (And my little Peanut too!)
