SULLIVAN: "Daddy, how come evweetime I climb into bed on mommy's sidah, it's ahways cwumblie?"
Yeah, I've really got to kick the eating in bed at night habit, but come on, I am almost on one year of refraining from smoke and chokes, I barely drink, I am entitled to eat in bed--I have even eaten chili in bed. Ever since I was young I recall thinking to myself, and this is the truth, that when I am older, ...I am going to make chocolate chip cookies and eat the dough without baking the cookies...
I have done that.
...That I am going to eat snacks in bed, have breakfast for dinner, sleep with the closet light on, air conditioning on and window slightly open...
Yep, done all of those too.
...That I am going to have dinners in my bed besides just breakfast in bed...
Done that too.
But when your kid starts questioning those habits, well, it's time to stop.
Either that or cover it up neatly with many bibs.
Or not allow Sullivan on 'my side' of our bed.
SULLIVAN: "Mommy, whee does Daddy do the smoke? It's bad.He won't stop and we've asked him too like you've said."
MOMMY: "He will stop hunny, don't stop asking him, keep it up, politely of course, but he will stop and don't give up on asking him even if you've asked him 20x before. You know how sometimes when I ask you to pick up your toys and you don't do it the first time, the second time and sometimes the third time, but you eventually "hear" me and do what I asked- well it's kinda like that."
SULLIVAN: "picking up my toys isn't unhephry."
MOM: "It is because you're not giving your body exercises by moving around bending, twisting. You're not exercising your brain by remembering what bin the toys went in, what place they belonged in, you're not exercising your brain muscles--which is very unhealthy not to exercise your entire body."
SULLVIAN: "Will I die not picking up or wistening to you?"
MOM: "No, of course not," thinking, aww man where is this going? First the china probe, but next the questions on how death works. Death scares me, I'd rather talk about puberty to my children. Granted I haven't walked in those hairy hallways yet, still, he's four.
SULLIVAN: "But when I do I'll get to play with all the toys that BOB gives me up in heaven, or before that when you and Jack go on www.ebay.CON."
SULLIVAN: "Yeah, BOB, the guy that is everyones daddy forever even if they don't want him for a daddy.."
Well said Sully.
So what if he has the name wrong, he's got the reason down perfectly.
Sort of gives new meaning to "WHAT ABOUT BOB?"

Now goodnight! Pam is here and I am in some rather awful pain, so I'm off to bed with the brownies that I baked for my chocolate fix, a book called THE DIVE OFF CLAUSSENS PIER (totally misspelling it, but I just started reading it this afternoon, and it's upstairs and I'm here, moody) maybe a glass of coke (I will be able to sleep), my hot water bottle, the RNC on in the background for comparisons from the DNC, and then sleep. With the windows open to listen to the rain, the fan on, the closet light on, and not having to wake up at 5:00am to walk tomorrow. I'm talking the 2.5walk off tomorrow resuming on Monday with my friend Carol.
