"Why am I not vacuuming?"
(And why is Backyardigans still on if Sam is at Preschool?)
Then I remembered, "Oh! I'm not vacuuming because Gabey is still asleep and I don't want to wake him up!" (guilt assuaged) Followed immediately by "Why is Gabey still asleep? It's 9a.m.!?!? What if the monitor isn't on and he's been crying for an hour!" (panic) at which point I turned up the monitor sitting right next to me to hear...
And crashing waves.
See, two nights ago we set-up this little gadget:
the HoMedics Sound Spa ($24.99 at Target.com) in the hopes that Gabey's sleep wouldn't be so often interrupted by noisy brothers. (Evidently Doug set it to Ocean last night.) It seems to be working! It is now 9:05 and he's still asleep.
Praise Be and Hallelujah!
While I could use this time to, say, fold laundry, I think I'll keep reading. You shouldn't turn up your nose at little blessings!
Even if they come by way of Seagulls!
P.S. It's now 9:25. Gabey is just waking up (possibly a new record) and making a squawking sound. I think he's talking to the Seagulls.
