Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 1822
When Freya was feeding Dani, Rodney lay on his side.
After breastfeeding, Dani was still awake and she refused to lie on the bed. Therefore, Rodney carried her and paced up and down the bedroom.
At first, Freya planned to go to bed only after Dani was asleep. However, she could not resist her fatigue and fell asleep first.
When she woke up the next day, it was already 7:00 a.m.
She glanced at Rodney, who was sleeping with Dani in his embrace, on the other side of the bed. The two of them were sleeping soundly. Rodney was even flashing a sweet smile, revealing his two dimples. It made Freya wonder what he was dreaming about.
Her heart instantly melted.
Then, she dragged herself down the stairs without bothering them.
The sitter had prepared a delicious confinement meal for her. Not only was the meal nutritious but there were also a variety of dishes.
Mrs. Lynch walked out and asked, “Where’s Dani and Rodney? Are they still sleeping?”
Before Freya could answer, the sitter sighed and said, “Little Miss only fell asleep at six in the morning. When I was about to go out to buy groceries, I saw Young Master Snow carrying her while pacing up and down the living room.”
Freya was stunned. She remembered that it was 3:00 a.m. when she woke up last night. Did it mean that Dani did not fall asleep soon after that?
“What a night owl Dani is. It’ll be troublesome if she sleeps this late every day.” Mrs. Lynch sighed. “ Let’s not disturb the two of them. You can set aside some food for Rodney later.”
Freya said, “Dani wasn’t like this in the hospital two days ago. She slept quite well.”
“Babies usually sleep more the first few days after they’re born. After getting adapted to the environment bit by bit, they’ll start making a fuss. They say babies love to sleep during their mothers’ confinement period. But from what I’ve observed, most babies don’t really sleep at night.”
After Mrs. Lynch finished speaking, she stared at Freya with a long face. “I reckon it’s because you
slept late when you were pregnant. Dani’s biological clock is probably all messed up.”
Freya was ashamed. It was true that she did sleep quite late at times. Although Rodney was strict with her and always urged her to go to bed before 9:30 p.m., she would not listen to him. After returning to her room, she would lock the door and secretly play games on her phone. Rodney would sometimes go to the office during the day. No matter how busy he was at work, he would get off work at 5:30 p.m. sharp to accompany his child at home.
Nevertheless, Dani had ultimately become a night owl. She always woke up around 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. and played until 5:00 or 6:00 a.m. Only then was she willing to sleep.
After feeding Dani, Freya sometimes watched Rodney play with Dani in the middle of the night. No matter how hard-hearted she was, she could not help but say, “Why don’t… you take a nap? I’ll carry her.”
“No need. My mom said you’re weak after giving birth to Dani. Carrying her will hurt your arm. You can just rest and sleep.”
Once Rodney was done speaking nonchalantly, he carried Dani downstairs to avoid disturbing Freya.
Lying on the bed alone, Freya had difficulty falling asleep.
After all, she was not that cold-hearted. Given that Rodney had to work during the day and take care of Dani during the night, she was aware of how taxing it was for him. In fact, she also knew that Rodney could have asked the sitter to do certain tasks.
However, he would settle the child’s matters on his own whenever he was at home.
Freya could not help but text Catherine on WhatsApp. It was still daytime in Country Y.
Catherine replied: [I admire you so much. My confinement period wasn’t as great as yours. I had to do everything myself. I hardly got to rest at night.]
Freya: [Enough, you rich woman. You’re currently living in a chateau. I’ve never even lived in a chateau my whole life.]
Catherine: [Haha. You should be content. You know how much I suffered when I gave birth to the twins, don’t you? Although I live well now, you’re aware of the tough times I went through back then. If it weren’t for your help, I might’ve gone mad.]
Freya recalled those days in spite of herself. As an onlooker, she had taken great pity on Catherine
who was suffering so much at that time.
At the thought of it, Freya felt that she was indeed a lot luckier than Catherine during her confinement period.
In the blink of an eye, Dani was one month old. The Snow family held a grand celebration for her.
Dani might be young, but Jason was so generous and reserved the top floor of Zenith Hotel to hold a grand banquet for his granddaughter.
Freya, the mother of the main character that night, was finally done with confinement. She wanted to be dressed to the nines for the occasion. Sadly, the moment she opened her wardrobe, it hit her that she had eaten so well during her confinement period in the past one month that she… was fatter now.
