Today was different

Monday, January 28, 2013

I woke up this morning at about 4:30 after only about 5 hours of sleep. I tried to go back but it was no dice. So I got up at 5:30.

When She(WMBO) found her way downstairs after 6:00, she wondered if I was OK. Then she looked outside. I had not yet myself.

"Ohhhh, you are going to have to get dressed. Looks like we had a surprise icestorm overnight."

That meant I was going to be clearing her car. "What would you do if I was still asleep." Stupid question.

"Wake you."

I tried to straighten up around here, but I had to be over at David's house by 8:30 and the house is just too messy for a couple of hours.

I was going to babysitting today while Dave had a meeting and Carolyn had a doctor appointment. "Is it OK if I do other errands?" Does she really have to ask?

Poor Colin just wanted to be held today. Putting him down was not an option. And they don't have a Snugli.

About the Snugli: Have you ever had an idea that you should have patented? 38 years ago, when Dr Dani was a baby, we came up with the idea of the Snugli. We made it out of an pair of jeans! So not only could you carry the baby on your chest and have your hands free, it had pockets! The Snugli was not around in stores 38 years ago.

So anyway, I was carrying that baby around all morning just walking around the house. If he went to sleep and I tried to put him down he was awake.

The upside was, I didn't snack and I did walk around a lot.

And I get to do it all again on Thursday.

I love being a Pop-pop.
