fun at night

Here's something fun to do in the middle of the night.

Find a comfy position early on in the evening.
Fall dead asleep.
Around 2:00 a.m., have your daughter come in and wake you out of dead sleep by announcing:

"MOM. I accidentally took out my rubber bands."

Get up and straggle to the bathroom. 
Make sure you do not run into the door.

Grab two miniscule rubber bands and try to put them on without your glasses and sleep in your eyes.
Pick pink because you can see them.
Put child back to bed.

Go back to bed your self.  Curl up, listen to your husband snore, and give yourself time to write this adventure into a blog post in your head, wondering all the while if you will ever fall back asleep.

Repeat at random times.

Tons 'o fun.

Have a fabulous day.


  1. Must have had something to do with the moon....Up half the night as well!

  2. Poor Lynn,
    Oh I must be on a different cycle than you all, I have been up for so many nights now and last night was my first real night of full sleep.
    But I get what your saying where the mind just won't let you go back to that peaceful deep sleep.
    How you ever got those tiny rubberbands on in that condition I will never know...lol

  3. Oh, three of my favorite people all in one spot...Lynn, Deb and Amy. I slept like a rock last night which is kind of unusual for me. I hope you have time for a nap today Lynn.


  4. Hope tonight's a better night!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  5. Hope you had your hemostat LOL! Get some sleep!

  6. Lynn,
    You have had way too much fun with those rubber bands. It's just not fair tha one person should get all the fun ;-)

  7. Well I am with you!! I didn't sleep very well at all last night.. But I did take a 2 hour nap today!! I hope you sleep well tonight!!

    Hugs, Linda

  8. Ummmmm...how does one a)accidentally take out those rubber bands and b)at 2 in the morning?! I'm not buying it at all. Not that it matters. I'm not the one having to deal with it :-) You are dedicated. I would have snarled, "Just go to back to bed Brenna" and conked out again. Hope you have resumed sleeping the night through.

  9. Sounds like quite a nightmare to me!!!!

    After that would be a great time for a good book, a granola bar and a glass of milk,,,,,,,,

  10. Such a good mom you are! And please, I have to deal with my own snoring bed partner. And last night, he was clicking his together in his sleep. What the heck is that about??
