The other night I was getting my hair cut and MD was talking. The conversation was about sleeping.
“Let me tell you. When I sleep my ears plug up!” she said.
“What? You must not like going to sleep then.”
“I don’t mind it. I never hear CE when she cries. She doesn’t bother me.”
The lady must have realized at that point that MD mean she doesn’t hear things when she sleeps. She is a sound sleeper — like her mother — which has been convenient when CE has a bad night, but not so much when I need to wake her for some reason.
