After the Kaiser slept 90 minutes (unaided by endless patting or bottle and after putting himself to sleep), and I did lots of blog surfing, and had hilarious emails with her, I came downstairs to this:

“I know things are difficult right now. But I really appreciate the job you do every day feeding and taking care of Alex. I know what a drain it is on you.

Hang in there and stay strong. I know you can. I love you.

ps Kitty appreciates you too.”

Now if I could only find a sitter so I can make out with him just a little bit.
