we probably need a vacation

the first thought i had today, at 5:45 am, when the baby started crying, was "quiet! you're going to wake the baby."

AN URGENT UPDATE. you know what else happened, just one day later? this is true and not a lie or an exaggeration: our cat emma jumped onto our bed at FOUR IN THE A.M. with such emphatics that she woke us both up. i swear to god, this is what mrs. nice guy said: "how did you get out of your crib?"

and then she fell back asleep. because no answer would be awesome enough for that question.

Yup. Sounds like it.

That's freakin' funny though.

I wonder what the Russian Nanny would say about that?

Hahahahahaha you made my day.

This morning my baby woke up 3 hours early. I said screw that I'm not getting up, threw him in his crib and he fell back asleep?! What the heck. AP goes wrong again.

Yeah, why don't these kids understand about sleeping in? I wish I could put a snooze button on my toddler.

I think samantha may be on to something. I would be very interesting to see your antics through the inner monologue of Russian Nanny.

It could be an entire series of not only the ridiculously funny stuff that happens, but how incompetant and ignorant you would be seen in dealing with the issues.

Yeah. . .

Take your child-rearing cues from me-- I've trained my dogs not to bother me until 9am (or I beat them with a shiny crowbar). I should write a book.

Do you think it is important that the crowbar be shiney? Because I have two but they are both matt black.

Outstanding. I can see either happening to us. As it is, we have to listen carefully to determine if it was the dog whining in his dreams or 3B crying. You'd think by now that we'd know. Bad parents, no biscuit.

hohoho. It's all about the baby, Mr. Nice Guy. That's what having a kid does to people. So, you trying for another?
