Don't jinx it!

Gah.  I jinxed myself this morning.

I generally don't subscribe to the thought that if you say something out loud you'll jinx it.  I feel confident saying things like, "Hey!  I just noticed that Gibson hasn't spit up yet today!" out loud.  Other people tell me not to jinx things...but I mean, I'm thinking it, why shouldn't I say it?  Jinxes aren't real, silly!

Well, I jinxed myself.  By thinking.  My brain is so very powerful.

A little background: the Spit Up family is in teething hell right now.  My wonderful 12-hour sleeper has started waking up screaming at all hours of the night.  And then he wakes up at 5:30 in the morning.  And it's awful.



But for the past two mornings, we have given him a bottle when he wakes up super early, and he goes back to sleep until 8:00...which is far longer than he's ever slept in his life.  And it's been wonderful.

So this morning, Danny got him a bottle at 5:45 when he woke up, and then he was quiet for awhile.  And of course I couldn't sleep, so I started composing a blog post in my head about how wonderful sleeping in is.

...that's a normal thing to do, right?  Most of my posts are composed in my brain in the middle of the night.  Because that's how I am.

Anyway.  I started composing in my head, and then Gibson started screaming.

Jinx!
