Before I went to bed last night I went to check on the guys, and I noticed that Chip looked uncomfortable. Ever since he was tiny he has used his bear Rupert as a pillow, but lately he’s been using his blanket instead. I decided it was time to give him a real pillow. He didn’t wake up, but kind of sighed with happiness as I settled him onto it.
Later that night this is what I heard on the baby monitor:
[rustle rustle] Da doo Mommy! Da noo Mommy! [snoring]
“Thank you Mommy!” — so I guess he woke up and noticed it. Officially the only time I’ve ever laughed when woken by my kids at night.
In other news, No. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, damnit. Serves me right for getting excited for the lives I imagine others having!
