Thursday, July 19, 2007It's a morning every parent remembers well...the day when your brain spins as you try to answer a simple question.
This morning as I was headed to the shower Greg looked at me and said "Did Emmitt wake up last night?"
I looked at him blankly, racking my brain.
"Wow! No, he didn't!" (Ok, he went to bed at 8 and got up at 11, but he hadn't gotten up since 11)
After a brief moment of celebration I had to laugh at the irony.
Well, how 'bout the fact that last night we had a massive line of storms come roaring through. The thunder woke both Greg and I up (but not the kids) and the power went out not once, not twice, but three times. After the first (small) cell went through, Greg and I turned on the weather radar channel in the living room and watched the next line (a red blog the size of our county) head toward us. That meant we were up from about 2am to 3am.
On the other hand, I did get to sleep from 3 until 7:30, which is a pretty good stretch for me.
Here's hoping he does this again tonight, and tomorrow night and the night after that and the night after that...
