Waiting. Like Idiot-Parents.

The boy is sleeping. Soundly. For many hours.

Time to rejoice?

Nope. He crashed at 5 p.m. Without dinner. The boy was having too much fun to take a longer nap today and when the fussing began, his mouth slammed shut. Not a stellar parenting move.

We are screwed.

So now it is 10 p.m. and we are waiting for him to stir. We're sitting on our orange couch wondering why we didn't wake him up hours ago. Stupid parents. Now, he'll undoubtedly demand a 3 a.m. dance party.

All that advice..."Never wake a sleeping babe"...paralyzed us. And now, it is 10:12 p.m. and we've been debating whether to wake him for about 4 hours. No adult conversation. No adult fun. Just debating the "to be or not to be" question of babes that went to bed too early.

Pray he wakes soon. Or not?
