It’s almost 1 a.m. and we are awake. Â I probably should be upset but, I’m not. Â The rain woke the frog princess up. Or so I thought. When I went into her room I smelled the problem before I saw it. Poop! Why must it come out while she sleeps? Yes, we have this issue often enough for me to be pissed about it.
I was working on my blog after meeting with Suzy over at Global Swan and discussing some of the updates I’d like to make based on the assessment that Eli Rose Social performed on my site. I should’ve been asleep but, midnight was upon me and, I told myself it was a good thing I hadn’t gone to sleep or I’d be mad at the frog princess waking up.
After her diaper was changed, she signed that she wanted food. I’m pretty sure this chick is going through a growth spurt because she’s signing “eat” 24/7! I went to the kitchen, got a graham cracker (because I know she’s not really hungry). As I suspected, she took two bites and gave it back. She sat next to me while we jiggled to Wow! Wow! Wubzy! Like her, I’m not one bit sleepy. We are now playing the drums on a box with crayons. Seriously. Â We take turns. I’m writing in between my turns. Â She will play a beat and then hand me the crayon. If I’m not doing it well, she’ll hold the little box for me to help me out. Â She can follow my beats pretty well. Of course, sometimes she has to take the crayons from me to teach me a thing or two.
I will be exhausted in the morning! I will probably not want to get up. Â But you know what? I’m not going to think about it. How often will rain (or poop) wake her up and she’ll want to sit next to me and play the drums, dance, call me mama and attempt to beat on my keyboard?
