Bliss is...

Admitting out loud to your husband at 8:30 that you are so exhausted you just want to go "lie down and rest" for a little while.

Having your husband come to lie with you, then laugh when you're struggling to keep your eyes open when he talks.

Actually contemplating it when he tells you that 9 o'clock is not too early for you to go to bed.

Letting him convince you that you will not miss anything by going to bed this early, because nothing exciting ever happens anyways.

Having him tuck you in between two full length body pillows, pull up all 4 of your blankets, tell you you're cute in your little "cocoon", kiss you goodnight, and then bend down to kiss your belly too.

Having him tell you that he's sleeping in the spare bedroom tonight so that you can try to get some uninterrupted sleep.

Him laughing at you when you begin to pout because he won't be in bed with you, but then reassuring you that if you need him just to knock on the wall and he'll come.

Him not getting angry when you actually do knock on the wall 20 seconds after he closes the door, just to see if he can really hear you.

Falling asleep 60 seconds later, and having 9 amazing hours of uninterrupted sleep, so deep that you don't actually move from your original position.

I enjoyed tucking you in, but I hate sleeping away from you. Good thing I bought some more nasal strips...
