"I WOKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!"
[at 4:30 a.m., in a tone of mild panic]
"I wanna go park!"
[at 6:05 a.m., as a polite request]
"I wanna eat a muffin."
Last night, I had dinner with some friends. I left the husband of one of my friends on baby duty, and I departed after all had been silent on the monitor front for about ten minutes. Alas, I left too soon, and Riley commenced screaming about five minute after I walked out the door. By the time K. got in touch with me to ask what to do and I got home to try to fix the situation, Riley had cried himself to sleep. This morning, Riley and I had this conversation:
"Riley, were you crying last night?"
[I feel relieved that he does not remember the incident, but then he continues]
"No, Mama. Riley screamin'!"
Sigh. Of course he seems none the worse for wear.
Happy weekend, everyone!
