Dear Ellen: It was a miraculous resurrection!

Sometimes I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. No particular reason. Just because I can.

Dear Ellen,

This is an actual conversation I had with my husband a few years ago – before Baby Girl was born. My husband has a habit of asking me what time I put the kids down.  He’s referring to their naps, of course. But whenever he says it like that, it rubs me the wrong way. I feel like he’s asking me if I euthanized our children.  So one day, I had enough.

Husband (glancing at the clock): What time did you put Baby Boy down?”

Me (sighing): I euthanized him a little over two hours ago. But don’t worry, I suspect he’ll miraculously resurrect in the next 45 minutes.”

It was a miraculous resurrection, indeed! He woke up right on schedule.
