Who is that strange man?!
Now on to my story......
Let me fill you in on the details of our sleeping arrangements (most of the time) in this house. Lonnie, my lovely most handsome and wonderful husband, also snores like a freight train. He spends most of his nights on the couch (by his choice I might add!) and I get the bed to myself (I'm not gonna lie...it's fantastic) Now, I love my husband very much but we love each other enough to know that when we sleep next to each other someone wakes up really grumpy. I am also a cover stealer. So needless to say, the boys don't see Lonnie in our bed very often.
So this morning at 5:30am I hear Brody (through my ear plugs) yelling my name. His latest fear is bugs in his bed, or anywhere for that matter. He points to our bed and whimpers and I'm half asleep so I just grab him and throw him in bed in between Lonnie and I. We don't like to encourage the kids to sleep with us, however we love snuggling once in a while. Just as I start to dose off again I hear more whimpering coming from Brody. He's pushed up so close to me that I can't move.
"Mooommmmm, I'm scared!"
"Scared of what? There's nothing to be scared of, go back to sleep"
"I'm scared of that man!"
"Man?! Huh? What man?"
"That strange man right there (pointing to Lonnie)"
"Uh, that's your dad."
"THAT strange man....is your dad."
