Midnight Musings....or Amuzings

So it was really 2 am, but midnight sounded better. It had been a rough night with Marissa waking up multiple times. Ben had been a real trooper in helping out with her. Now, Trent wakes up for his nightly feeding and it's around 2 am. Ben had JUST put Marissa back to bed, and brought Trent to me. I took him to the front room to feed him, and as usual dozed off while feeding him. It's now around 2:30am and I can hear Ben snoring in bed. I burp Trent and put him back to bed and go to climb into my own to go back to sleep. Well, Ben's snoring got really obnoxious after a few minutes so I nudged him and said, "you're snoring. Roll over." And what does Ben reply, while half asleep? "It wasn't me!" So I said, "Yes, Ben, you're snoring, so roll over." Ben says, "It wasn't me, I just got back in bed." At this point I'm laughing to myself and have to refrain from saying, "and just who else is in this room to be snoring then?" I was a good girl, and didn't say it.....at least not until the next day when I asked him if he remembered our conversation. So, instead I said "just go back to sleep." He rolled over, stopped snoring and went back to sleep while I layed there and chuckled to myself for about a half hour. If it hadn't been in the middle of the night I probably would have been laughing outright. I love Ben, and that made my night.

That story was so funny! I love ramblings in the middle of the night. Kids give us some great ones. I guess husbands do too. :) The other night Eloise woke up in the middle of the night and got me up, went straight into her room without saying anything to me. I went in there and asked what was wrong and she said to me (very sleepily) "I don't want to lasso!" Huh?? I laughed to myself and said "it's okay, you don't have to lasso...go back to sleep" I went back to bed and had to wake Stephen to tell him because it was so stinkin' funny. I love my husband too but I don't love loud snoring :) I've had to wake Stephen up at times too

The other night, Steven was talking in his sleep and I believe he was talking to Joshua..he said, "Oh it doesn't hurt that bad you goonie bird..."
I was laughing outright! Sooo funny.

I love that he tried to push the blame in the middle of the night. That is classic.
