Getting Ready at 1 am??

I think I need to stop reading Harry Potter right before bed.

While I was visiting my Dad this past week I would take advantage of the alone time and read a good bit of my Harry Potter book as I laid in bed. It was great. I am paying now for the loss of sleep but it was a good change of pace.

Saturday night started out no differently. I read till about 11 pm and turned off the lights and fell to sleep. At some point I woke up and looked at the clock radio and swore I saw 7:50 am. I freaked because that means Caleb has overslept and his naps will be royally messed up. It didn't occur to me that it was pitch black outside and that I didn't feel rested at all. I jumped out of bed and went into his room. He was fast asleep. That should've been another clue. NOPE! I patted his bottom and spoke to him until he woke up. I pulled him out of bed and walked into my room. We rocked a little bit and then I put him down on the floor to play while I got ready. I made the bed and was about to change Caleb into his day clothes and brush my teeth. I even thought I should take my shower because Caleb was being so quiet. Hmmmm. Caleb sure wasn't playing much and was being really quiet too. Still NO CLUE!

As I was going into the bathroom to brush my teeth and take a shower I looked at the clock (Thank You, Lord!) and saw 1-stinking-AM. I said, "You've GOT to be KIDDING me!" I scooped up Caleb so fast and put him back in his Pack-N-Play. He didn't complain or fuss. He laid down and went straight to sleep. I un-made the bed so fast you probably wouldn't have seen those covers fly. I slept till 7 am (the real one) and got Caleb up for good. He was a lot more focused and willing to play as was I.

I haven't done something like this in years. I was known to take showers at 2 am in college. It was the water hitting my face that woke me up. How I got down from my loft (a pretty good distance), gathered my stuff, took off my clothes, and got into the shower without waking up is beyond me. Thankfully, this is not a regular thing. Just enough to get a good laugh afterwards and that is what Chris is doing since I told him. Thanks, Honey!
