E is frantically going through all of the things to find this fictional stuffed animal that she has named Annie. She swears up and down there is a stuffed bunny that is “the best one” that I’ve never seen before. It doesn’t exist. She’s gone insane.
Our therapist said to us, “You guys look like new parents. You aren’t getting enough rest.” We said, “but therapist, she sleeps through the night, we are totally getting enough sleep.” Her response? “You may be getting enough sleep, but you need to rest.”
She may be right.
