Every freaking two hours...
Nathaniel pulled the pillow over his head and tried to smash it over his ears.
Two hours later...
It was Nathaniel's turn to stumble downstairs in the dark to the nursery. Why is the nursery even downstairs? he thought irritably. Why can't we just put a pack-n-play in the bedroom?
Nathaniel laid her back in the crib and headed back upstairs. He could still get a little shut-eye before he had to get ready to go in to the studio.
"Mmmhmmm.." she said sleepily.
Nathaniel's focus just switched from getting a little shut-eye to getting a little morning nookie. He slipped his hand under Eva's shirt. "Mmmm..." he said as he started to nuzzle her neck.
But just as things were getting interested, his alarm started blaring. Nathaniel hung his head. "I have to go," he groaned, giving her a quick kiss on the head.
Eva groaned in unison and let her head fall back on the pillow. It'd been ages since they'd had a chance to be intimate!
"Come on, sweetheart, we're getting some fresh air today!"
By the time Eva finished buying all the toddler books she could find, her pocketbook was feeling the dent! But, what was a little bit of money compared to her daughter's development?!
Hayley cooed, waving her arms in front her.
After relaxing and watching the children running around hunting for eggs, Eva sighed. "Time to go home, now," she said as she lifted Haley up to put in the stroller. "Daddy's going to be coming home soon!"
Nathaniel shook his head and stroked Eva's cheek. "I was kind of hoping for some mommy-time, though," he said huskily.
Eva grinned as Nathaniel followed her into the nursery.
Nathaniel pulled the stuffed animal from the crib. "How long until she sleeps more than two hours?" he asked hopefully.
Eva grimaced. "Another few months," she said with a sigh.
