She looks down at the child in her arms, apprehensively. The child is asleep: for now.
All that her child has given her for the past week is sleeplessness and misery.
She is tired and just wants to sleep- undisturbed for once, without having to wake up to those fitful cries in the middle of the night.
But now as the child naps in peace, she stares at him with fondness through tired eyes.
As long as he is happy, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
