Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Sleeping Beauty


A conversation between a husband and a wife.

Honey, you looked so peaceful sleeping this morning.” – Husband

“What do you mean by that?”- Wife

“When you were sleeping late with the little guy.”- Husband

“When he comes in the bed, I can’t sleep.” – Wife

“Oh, you were sleeping.  I have the photo to prove it.” – Husband

“Photo?” – Wife

“Ahhh.  What did you do?  Oh my God.  I look like a corpse.  Are you sure I was even alive when you took the photo.  That is horrifying.” – Wife

“Of course you were alive, you were peacefully sleeping.  My sleeping beauty.” – Husband

“Honey, you have taken the term, ‘love is blind’ to new heights.  Anyone who sleeps with a woman who looks dead and still calls her a beauty, is a keeper.” – Wife
