"Why does everything always happen to me?"*

This is one of those things which only happen in my house. At 3am, NTS came to our bed, where we were cheerfully dozing off the Laurent Perrier to announce loudly -- emphasizing the point by placing the object about an inch (2½cm) from my face -- "My foot is cold."

    Did you tell him to get back in bed and put it under the covers to get warm?

    Well at least he didn't vomit on you! That's the kind of 3AM visits I get!

    My son always woke me up for similar stuff by firmly poking my face. Good times.

    I may have to warn his future wife of this unfortunate habit, if said habit isn't broken relatively soon.

    No pity.

    Just read your line about Meyer lemons.

    And I know it's right for the audience...

    And I know it is more than made up for by the delightful caped superhero imagery...

    But I can't help thinking the Laurent Perrier was channeling NTS in a bid for revenge.

    Meyer lemons. Snort.

    I really did laugh out loud at this one. Boys are strange creatures.

    Just lucky, I guess

    At least your popsicle toes episodes come with warnings.
    Mine are just events that warrant a back-wrenching jolt and a shriek from me as youngest parks his icy feet on me before daylight. And then he goes back to sleep! Leaving me wide awake of course. My kids sneak into bed with us. Sometimes I wake up and Oldest is snoring away, in the middle. ON MY PILLOW.

    It makes perfect sense. He's the one who unraveled his sock, no? Of course he's got a cold foot! :D

    My Joe just creeps - creeps I tell you - into the room and whispers eerily.

    Mum?

    Mum?

    Until I wake up with the biggest start.

    Then he vomits.

    BMM,

    Does his head spin around or is there an orchestral swell of Mozart's Requiem?

    We've taken to calling Jasper 'Ninja' for the stealth he employs after dark - when he just appears, watching you for goodness knows how long, TOTALLY SILENT or when you've gone to bed and you roll over and he's just standing there. Staring at you. By your bed.

    IT FREAKS ME OUT.
