Too Early in the Morning

22 May


This morning I woke up in a panic looking for our new kitten Charlie.   Last night I remembered him falling asleep right next to me so when I woke up this morning and didn’t see him I thought I had squashed him (this happened to me before when I was a child, I rolled on top of our kitten and killed it).  Anyways, I woke up tossing covers, throwing pillows, looking under the bed and to my dismay there was no Charlie.  I proceeded to my girls’ room and looked under their covers, under their beds, in their bathroom and still no Charlie.  I went through the living room and kitchen, no Charlie in sight.  Finally I made it to my son’s room and I pulled back the covers to see if Charlie was under there and I found something too early in the morning for me to handle.  My son, for reasons unknown to me (and I prefer to keep it that way) fell asleep in the nude.  So there I am staring at his behind in shock.  I quickly covered him and left as discreetly as possible wondering why in the world he would do that.  It was a little warm in our house but not anything that would require him to sleep just as he was brought into this world.  Nonetheless, I think I will keep this from my son so as not to embarrass him, for he is going through that stage right now.  Ahh…the joys (or not) of parenting.

Sad. Funny. Truthful.

Combining depressing thoughts with comedy and brutal honesty makes for some interesting writing. I know at least one person other than me agrees so that's good enough for me.
