Guess What I want for Christmas....

So you all know that I'm obsessed with sleep, right? Riiiiight? Well, if you didn't, you do now. I am truly obsessed..I can't stop thinking about sleep..example: I read an add in a magazine for some super energizing beverage & I'm like 'that sounds great. You know what sounds even greater? SLEEPING. Then I wouldn't need the caffienated beverage! Then, on the next page of the magazine I see some super skinny model in some super cute dress & I'm like 'oh, she's cute..I like that dress, I bet I'd look cute in it, too..but you know what would make me look REALLY cute? Sleep.' Yeah..'cause I've never looked so tired & blotchy & OLD in my life! Not when I was dating my husband & up till 5am with him, then at work at 6:30am till 3pm, all while going to school. I looked freakin' uh-mazing then. Now, I just look like someone smeared my mascara under my eyes..permanently. Ugh.

OK, so, the point of this post is to tell you a funny sleep story. Aiden & I took a little trip to the mall yesterday. We shopped. We strolled. Then we got a sandwich. And while we're sitting in the food court enjoying our turkey-&-provolone-on-wheat-with-apple-slices I notice that Aiden is eyeballing the carousel a few yards away. He keeps twisting in his highchair to looooooook at it (have I mentioned he is INCREDIBLY mobile these days? And that I haven't babyproofed anything in my house...it's AWESOME!) So I decide he'd probably like a ride on the carousel. We pay our ride-the-carousel-fee & select a nice looking pony. I buckle Aiden on, he grabs the bar & put my hand on his back..we start spinning...he's loving it..then about 6 mins in to the ride he just suddenly slumps to the side & slides right off the horse into my arms! Yeah, I kinda freaked out! My mind is racing through possibilities...did he choke? Did he faint? Do I have a fainting goat for a son? THEN, I realize that nothing that dramatic has occured...oh, no! My son has simply been spun to sleep. While sitting upright.

If that doesn't tell me he's tired, I don't know what will.

I know what you mean about the sleep. I tried all sorts of eye creams to try and fix the bags under my eyes when I had Parker. I looked horrible. It took me a second to realize that the only thing that would fix them is more sleep. After Parker started sleeping more, I started looking better. I'm not looking forward to being a bags-under-my-eyes zombie again after this second child. The things we do for our kids.

Ha! That is hilarious! Good thing he fell off onto your side and not the other one. And now you know a trick! If not sleeping, the carousel it is!

I am so happy you blogged! It was every bit as funny and entertaining as I expected! MODG has some seriously stiff competition :)

Jen said...

perfect...you found the cure. Now all you have to do is find a way to build a carousel in your house!! So, Aiden can ride the carousel and you can take a nap :) Seriously miss your guts and fun stories at work. I think the run-down-mommy look looks way better on you than on me.

Oh I love it! Too dang funny. I think I miss you :) Maybe I should call you back. Good idea??? Then we can wander the mall together!
