Because I'm not above child labor. Heck, I'm just hoping for a couple extra minutes in bed before Her Highness declares Enough Is Enough Woman, Go Get Me A Beer. Realized all Little Miss sees from her crib are the bare white walls under the desk below the loft bed. I picked those alphabet animals because they had the most pieces of the few sets I had time to look at, and are almost fool-proof - I could simply call out "Left. Right. Little bit lower. Nearer the monkey," while my elder child squeezed into that little space.So Saturday night after a late dinner for all of us when Kings finally comes home, I put Her Highness to bed and with a little flutter of hope set my alarm for a precious 15 minutes later than usual. (I have btw almost never woken to the alarm for obvious reasons.) Oh how little you know, Mummee.
Yes, she spies the alphabet animals in the morning light, but You Silly Grownup, It Would Be Extremely Impolite Not To Engage Them In Conversation."Aiyayayer-wawa. Aiyayayer-wawa. AIYAYAYER-WAWA. AIYAYAYER-WAWA. AIYAYAYER-WAWA."
Ai........... YAYA! Yer.........WAWA!"One of those beautiful mornings when you think I Am So Screwed.
