This little exchange happened before this blog existed, back when we were in the throes of constant baby and toddler sleeplessness, AKA Hell. I came across it today and thought it was worth sharing.
Can you relate to your significant other forgetting what world you live in, throwing proven knowledge out the window, and completely screwing up your carefully executed plan? (Said with affection, because you’ve done the same darn thing).
The sleepless baby is finally asleep. Again.
One parental unit finds it advisable to rustle a wad of aluminum foil and rip it mightily across it’s metal comb. Twitchy baby stirs. Again.
Second parental unit threatens quietly but clearly through gritted teeth, “I will end your life if you touch that foil one more time.”
First parental unit grins and returns sheepishly to the couch while ignoring the sweet sound of his Beloved, hissing, now slightly louder, “What’s the matter with you, you’re not NEW!”
