HAI! I missed you - yes, you...right there in the front. Yeah. You. Thanks for coming.
It's a "school" day - time to wake the Thing and Stanky, as is usual, by a light tickle and kisses.
Me: Wakey wakey wakey! Time to get ready for school!
Thing: muhhhhhewaashsshtang (rolls to other side of MY bed)
Me: Thiiiiiiiiing! (tickle tickle, remove wet pull-up)
crickets are chirping, the fan is turning, and nothing else is happening.
Me: THIIIIIIINNNNNGGGGGG! Wakey wakey! (tickles sides and pinches adorable little toddler butt).
Thing: (again with the rolling away from me - ugh) Knock it off! Keepa hans to self, Ise twynda sneep hewer!
Me: crickets are chirping again. Snort-laugh. Babe! Come get your kid up - he's turning into a snotty teenager!
That is all.
