Nibbles Are Not Scooby Snacks!

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Jude has had some trouble going to be lately.  He'll try to sneak out of his room.  He'll try to get you to stay in his room.

"I want you to stay (pronounced tay)," he'll plead desperately.  If that does not work he'll tell you his walls are crazy.  "No, listen to me: Look at the walls.  Now close your eyes.  See all those colors?  My walls are going crazy.  I can't sleep because when I shut my eyes my walls go crazy." Sometimes he'd argue with me, "Why do I have to sleep by myself? You and Daddy don't."

Some nights he makes me turn off more lights.  Then he makes me turn on more lights.  I give him stuffed animals until they take over the bed and he ends up taking himself, his pillow and a few buddies to our bed in the middle of the night.

Last night, I even gave him a toy Scooby Doo van with a little light in it (probably some toy someone gave us from a kids' meal) to turn on if he got scared.  When we went to bed very, very late that night, it looked like the Scooby Doo van was successful, as our little buddy had not joined us in the big bed.

I remember Chris and I commenting about how we missed our little buddy. It's a pleasant feeling to wake up and find that one or the other woke up to go potty and snuggled in to our bed with us.

The next morning, as we enjoyed sleeping in, Chris woke to to hungry kids playing in our room on our bed, waiting to be fed.  One of them was driving a Scooby Doo van across his chest:

Jude (giggling mischievously): I drived it on the his nibbles.
Karenna: They're not nibbles; they're nipples, Jude!
