hubby got up before me this morning, and went to get the boys who were awake and playing in their cribs. i could hear the boys’ squeals of excitement and “good mor’ing daddy!” as he opened their bedroom doors down the hall.
Zander: where mommy?
hubby: mommy’s still sleeping.
Zander: i go wake up mommy! in a bedroom!
i hear the sound of little Zander feet coming down the hall.
Zander: [as he enters the bedroom] hmmm…around he’e somewhere! [he peeks over the top of the mattress on hubby’s side of the bed] MOMMY!
me: come over here and i’ll help you get up onto the bed (our bed is pretty high, and he’s still figuring out how to climb it safely…he’s a little daunted by the height)
i help Zander up onto the bed beside where i’m lying
Zander: mor’ing mommy! [he gives me a hug and a kiss, and then sits back up and stares at me, looking puzzled] mommy have sticky tape a nose!
i had to think about that one for a bit
me: [after remembering that i was wearing a Breath Right Strip] yup. mommy wears sticky tape on her nose when she sleeps.
Zander: ouch. mommy have booboo!
me: no, mommy doesn’t have a booboo. mommy’s nose is always stuffy, so mommy has to wear sticky tape at bedtime.
Zander: [still looking a bit worried] ya…
me: the sticky tape helps mommy sleep better!
Zander: ya! sticky tape help mommy sweep be’er!
i’ve heard it helps daddy sleep better, too.
