Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night because you heard someone crying?
I did last night or early this morning. I tried to figure out who was crying. Since it wasn't one of my children, I fall back asleep.
Later on I woke up again, because of the same crying. And again I asked myself who was crying. It did sound familiar.
Still in my bed, thinking, trying to figure it out, I remembered all those times I was crying for pain in my sleep.
It did also remind me of a time years ago. That time I woke up in a hospital because I heard someone crying.
Who? The one I heard turned out to be me. I woke up myself (out of conscious) that way.
I don't know if the 2 ladies I shared the room with heard me crying at all.
They clearly were in a good mood. Chatting about what they would tell their children about todays shoppingday in the Netherlands. "After all 2 children is enough", one said, and the other one agreed.
