I might have sold my soul to the devil last night.

Accidentally! I didn't do it on purpose - it just kinda... happened. It was 2am and Colin had been crying and fussing and whining for nearly three hours. Three hours STRAIGHT. He would only stop if I was holding him while bouncing him around while also walking up and down the hallway. There was no rest to be had while comforting him, and I was losing it. I was so exhausted plus fighting off a cold. I got Colin to close his eyes and take a pacifier. I laid him down in his bassinet. I tiptoed back to bed and crawled in, taking care not to make any sound at all.

Then he started crying again.

And I thought to myself, "I would sell my soul to the devil if Colin would just go to sleep."

And then Colin went to sleep.

Eeek! When my brother was in college (supposedly built over the gates to hell btw!) a student went around at lunch time and bought people's souls for $5 then he went around at dinner and sold them back for $10 :-)

You didn't sign anything, so I'm pretty sure you're still okay :)

You said "I would sell my soul to the devil" NOT "If Colin goes to sleep right now, I will hand my sould right to the devil," so I bet you are fine, and God just heard a sincere cry of desperation! ;)

Hope the sleeping has continued in a good pattern (with only good supernatural intervention):-)
