Pajamas & PawPaw

Last night Owen and I have a night to ourselves without T. He went to a "meeting" as Owen called it. Really he was at a research thingie. :) Needless to say, we were on the go all night. It is literally a battle to get Owen to go down and last night wasn't anything different.

It started off with a bath that last for about 45 minutes. He was squeaky clean! Ha! After that he got into his new jammies that Nana gave him. He said they were "monster cookie" pajamas. Not cookie monster, "monster cookie". They were so cute on! Once we were dressed, had apple juice, and blankie, we headed upstairs.

I decided to call my dad because it had been a few days since we have talked. I didn't get much in before my dad wanted to talk to Owen. He loves talking to his PawPaw. I don't know what they talk about, but Owen always has a smile on his face.

It was getting close to bedtime and I noticed he was getting tired. He told me he wanted to go in the "big bed" SHOCKING! We went down there at about 8 & I was SO tired! I was dozing off and he would lay his head on me and say "wake up mommy" Oops! I was tied. After about 45 minutes of trying to convince him to RELAX, I took him to his bed. I just don't sleep well while he is in our bed.

He finally relaxed and went to sleep about 9'ish. Tony got home about 10:30 and I was still up working on my PowerPoint for class. I finally decided to give it up and head to bed. Little did I know I would be woken up at 11 by Owen crying.

As soon as I hear him I pop right out of bed. I went in there and this is how our conversation went:

Owen-Mommy I am crying
Owen-I am said
Me-Why are you sad?
Owen-I want to go with you in the big bed!
Owen-Please! It will be fun! Please get my blankie & pillow and take me with you.
Me-Ok. I will take you.
Owen-We can snuggle and watch cartoons

I gave in and took him with me. I am such a sucker and he wasn't kidding when he wanted to snuggle. I didn't realize that snuggling meant laying right on top of me. I work up at 1 and took his little butt back in his bed. I rested well for the rest of the night.

Off to relax and make some coffee for tomorrow.
