Alien Children

April 14, 2008 at 3:08 pm 15 comments

Blogging wasn’t the only thing I neglected while I was moving. Since Pap managed to come down with the flu right after we settled the boxes into the house and I ended up with a cold a few days after that, I haven’t seen much of the grandgirls until this weekend. I should know better than to leave their mothers unsupervised for more than a day or two. The minute my back was turned, they replaced my grandchildren with some kind of alien version. I suspect high technology is involved because this one’s voice track keeps getting stuck: “up-up-up! mine-mine-mine! no-no-no!”. She used to be so sweet and cuddly.  In her human form, she sleeps.  This new version?  Let’s just put it this way…at 10:00 p.m. it was kind of cute that she was still running around yelling “Nana, me ook!”  By midnight it was getting annoying.  At 1:00 I started worrying about how I was going to function on Sunday with no sleep.   She finally fell asleep at 3:30 and my internal alarm demanded I get up at 5:30…I admit, it was a struggle not shake this little false child awake so she would at least be as tired as I was.  But that would have been silly.  Much more effective to demand that her mother reset her kid’s sleep program when she comes to my house.  Insert that memory card that shuts kid down by 10:30 tops…. I know its Monday, but I’m still tired.

    I can’t believe such a small child is still awake at 3 am. Did she have caffeine?

    When sweet children morph into these creatures, their still state is no longer refered to as sleeping. They’re “recharging”!

    These are the little reminders as to why we have children when we’re young and more resilient. 😉

    I know exaactly what you are talking about. It is not uncommon for Belle to be up until midnight or later so that she will let Ashley sleep half the day away. grrr…

    Just think how boring it would be if things didn’t keep changing.

    I’m so thankful my kids like their sleep. 3am? I would be a zombie too.

    The beauty is you can hand them back at some stage! And she is very cute!

    I’m taking notes because they don’t come with an owner’s manual.

    There’s a wonderful product called Dreamerz out there…it comes, amongst other ways, in little chocolate ‘pillows.’ Perfect thing for this situation!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
