Dan is the Man

I now declare that today is "Dan Snow is Freaking Awesome Day."

Let me back up a bit.

This is my brother-in-law Dan.
He is married to Holly, Marty's older sister. Dan is a night owl. So what did this night owl brother-in-law of mine do that was so freaking awesome? Let me tell you.

Last night, he did his night-owl thing at my house. With baby Drew in the playpen in the living room, Dan took care of him all night, giving me and Marty all night to sleep.

Glorious, uninterrupted sleep, oh, how I have missed you!

That's right, folks, after MONTHS of waking several times a night, and several nights of sleeping in six minute stretches, I got over seven hours of sleep last night. SEVEN HOURS.

I feel like a new woman.

Marty asked me as he left, "I know what you are like with sleep. What are you planning on doing today? Re-arrange the furniture? Paint the living room again? Am I going to come home and find you have rotated the house on the foundation?"

No worries, honey. But an addition wouldn't be a half bad idea...

Thank you so much, Dan. You have given both Marty and I a new lease on life, and we appreciate it more than you can imagine. Thank you, Holly, for letting us borrow your husband for the night. We love you both!!

I second the motion, because that is FREAKING AWESOME! I'm so happy for you!!

Marty said...

You are awesome!! Thanks for the gift of sleep. This was one of kindess gestures that I have ever experienced. You are a great brother and I'm proud to call you family. See you at the chili cookoff tonight (I might have to vote for your chili as first place just to show you a small gesture in return).

What's the story with Ben's mouth? Is he okay? And I am glad that you were able to get some sleep because of your Knight in Shining Armor called Dan Snow! This must be Snow Daddy, right? :-)
