….both Colin and I were up /w Logan last night; Colin got up in the middle of the night as I rolled over and continued to sleep. I thought perhaps I heard him cursing at me but I’m going to pretend it was just a dream b/c my husband would NEVER say those things to me b/c he loves me more than life itself. FACT.
|Us at Easter before I forced Colin to go shopping for clothes that fit his body|
Logan has always been both an AMAZING sleeper and a “Daddy’s Boy” he just can’t get enough of his dad. I think it mainly has to do /w the fact that from the second he wakes up until he goes to sleep mommy is there smiling in his face, forcing him to cuddle and play /w her ALL DAY LONG…(you’ll thank me later in life Logan). So yes, Lo & Colin are bestest buds and have been since birth…

So back to the story… Colin got Lo back to sleep but come 6am when Colin left for work I wake up to SCREAMING and the repeated word “DAD” “DAD” “DAD” – so I had to take him into bed /w me and just cuddle him. Poor dude. He didn’t get back to sleep till after 7am… Needless to say we slept in till 9am (don’t hate Colin, it was necessary) I am glad I don’t have to work tonight. but I am not glad I have the whole weekend with out “dad” around sigh
So why is this happening?? why separation anxiety now at 20 months?? and not before?? moms- I’m calling on you for tricks and tips PLEASE ….I blame it on Colin’s fathering skills and how he’s “too cool” a dad. Take this Sunday for instance Logan wakes up to a new (borrowed) drum set in the basement and it’s like a rockband Christmas at our house!
|I always take these pictures just incase Lo is the next Justin Bieber|
|this is the classic “mom are you seeing this?” face… As in TRY HARDER to be this awesome!|
