Sweetheart stage

I like that she talks about the sweetheart stage beyond just lovers... I know it is probably the most referred to, and contemplated...
I remember when I had Marley, my first born, I was in the biggest bubble of love... I had never known love like this, and fortunately she was an easy baby so there was nothing to challenge this feeling... 5 weeks later, 5 weeks into her little life, I remember feeding her in the night, I put her back to bed, and lay down wondering if I was ever going to sleep more than 3 hours ever again... That was the moment for me that made me aware of the true parameters of our relationship... Thankfully the next week she started sleeping 9 hours!
There is always a moment where the parameters are defined, when you need to step up to your role, as a mother, lover, friend... I like the challenge... Though I'm pretty happy that no one is going to challenge my sleep like that again!
