3.12 AM Clara arrives at my bedside:
"Mommmeee? I need to go to the bathroom."
Me: "Then go."
Clara [loud whine]: "Nooo. But I want you to come."
Me [effectively manipulated by loud whine and desirous of keeping other child asleep]: "Sigh. Ok."
3: 40 AM Winton arrives at my bedside:
"Mommmeee?" [he sounds exactly like his sister]
Winton: "I had a bad dream. I want to sleep with you."
Me [making space]: "gnf"
4:40 AM Mommy, still awake, Winton punches Mommy in eye (turns out this kid rolls over by throwing a punch and then following through with his whole body).
5.45 AM Mommy, having not been able to get back to sleep, gets up to walk dog.
Mommy too tired to stay up late grading
4AM Mommy gets up to try and do the grading she couldn't do the night before.
3.44 AM Winton at my bedside:
" MOMMY! I had the dream with the boy in the scary TV movie with the grass and the dark again."
Me: "Ok, but you sleep by the wall this time."
