I woke up. I woke up by myself, to light streaming in the window. It was early morning, but not the crack of dawn, and I was startled to realise I had woken up naturally. There wasn’t a sound from the baby. I did the automatic arithmetic in my head – how many hours had he slept? – but realised he hadn’t squawked all night.
Sudden jubilation was replaced by an equally sudden panic – was something was wrong? Just in time to quell my fears, he grumbled and stirred. I got out of bed with a big smile on my face.
We didn’t need any help to get through our day, or our nights.
We were both okay, and in that moment I knew it completely.
