funny parenting moment

Bill and I have been pretty sad the last few days about losing our ol' hound, but something pretty funny happened that I wanted to share. Many who know my husband know that he is an extremely heavy sleeper. When Molly cries in the middle of the night, I usually wake up right away, but Bill takes a little longer to wake up, if he does at all. Last night Molly started crying in the middle of the night, and Bill, ever the sweet, sweet Poppa, reached over, grabbed the monitor, and put it on his chest. I was not really sure what he was doing until he started trying to shush and comfort the monitor, saying, "It's okay, baby. It's okay."

In my dream I knew it was the monitor, but my actions still somehow made sense.

if the monitor goes both ways Bills action could very well put Molly back to sleep. If it doesn't go both ways than perhaps engineer Bill should make one that does

Aunt Cathy always has a good perspective. I guess that's one of the reasons we love her.

Leave it to my son. Couldn't he tell that the monitor wasn't anywhere near as cuddly and soft as Molly.
