On Mommy Paranoia

Pretty much every night, I have to check to make sure he’s still breathing. It’s not enough to just look at the boy. You have to literally put your face in his face to tell. Scott does it too, usually on his own, separate from my questioning. It’s just always nice to know he’s still alive.

Other times, I hold my breath when I’m lying in bed and try to distinguish which breaths are whose in the silence. It’s going to be hard to put him down for the night in his own separate room. How do people do it?
