Today, I was running a little late for work. MJ was up for four hours last night and that obviously made pregnant mommy a bit sleepy and I may have fallen asleep 15 minutes before we were supposed to leave the house. After dropping MJ off with his GG, I was making my way to work when I came across an older man waiting to cross at a crosswalk. I stopped my car and attempted to wave him across. The man smiled and said through my open window, “I may be old, but I am still a gentleman. Go ahead, young lady.”

My tired, crappy day is now a little bit better. 🙂

We were supposed to close on the house on Friday. I should have known better than to get my hopes up with the way our luck has been going. The only thing they needed was one last employment verification for CJ and his HR manager was unavailable yesterday. That one thing has now held us up until next week.

I am told this will be the last hold up. There is nothing from this point on that could prevent closing unless CJ and I see something on our final walkthrough. To be perfectly honest, there would have to something crazy wrong for me to walk away from this now. I cannot wait for MJ to finally be able to sleep in his bed again.

From the time he was five months old until now, he has been sleeping in a pack-and-play and I feel like the worst mother ever whenever I think about it. We were only supposed to be staying with my grandparents for a few weeks, so we did not think we would need the crib and it is buried in our storage unit. My baby deserves better. At least him and his batman do not know any better, but I still cannot wait to spoil MJ big time to make up for it.

He loves his batman...
