Night Brain

Bryan says good night and promptly falls into a deep sleep within five seconds of his head hitting the pillow. He's exclusively a mouth breather (he says he can't sleep with his mouth closed, and yet miraculously he never wakes up in the middle of the night LIKE THIS or with a sore throat?) and I try in vain for the next hour or so to fall asleep, regretting the cup of coffee I had twelve hours prior that wrecked my REM cycle.

Or the fun thing when they get distracted and whip their head around to investigate a noise WHILST STILL LATCHED. Hold me Jesus). This time is also a little different in that I know what I like and what I don't - what works (for me) and what doesn't. I just thought I'd share a few things in case you needed some TLC for your boobs. Enjoy!
