4am showing of Wallace and Grommit

You may or may not be wondering when I’ll get around to posting the gory details about the Cherry Blossom Party Aftermath and the following days.  I promise I will get to those posts very soon.  Probably later on today.  It’s just that with the time lag and everything going on at home (My wife has missed me very much! Heheheh!) I honestly haven’t had time.  But That’s not what this post is about.  It’s about the moments in parenting that make you smile and roll your eyes at the same time.  If you’ve got a shorty you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.

Last night/this morning, Cammy was having some very bad dreams and woke up calling for Daddy Daddy Daddy!  So we brought her into the bedroom to sleep with us.  Now, she’s uncomfortable and not very sleepy so she’s tossing and turning and not going to sleep and kicking both of us in the back.  My sleep schedule is still FUBAR so I decide, why not go and watch a movie.  So I made her a bottle, sat her down on the couch under some covers, and popped in Wallace and Grommit.  Maybe this will let her sleep, maybe not, but It’s the kind of Dad stuff that my dad didn’t really do and I wouldn’t miss for the world.  She’s going to be crabby today but at least we get to spend some time together.

ALSO, Daimushi, I just want you to know that Karma is a bitch because as bad as my snoring was, this past night, both Raquita AND Anubis were sawing the same tree.  Man.  No rest for the wicked, the weary, or the wily, eh?

Hey you earned those saws dawg! I'd like to think of that as war medals, earned in the line of duty dear husband.

I cannot sleep when people snore. I need it Black and Quiet. I guess that coulda gone on my wierd list. It is terrible. If I get to sleep first I am usually good unless it is seriously loud. Rich has just started to as the pollen has gotten bad down here. And I am scary mama with no sleep. LOL.
