The TMI Files. A Short Bedtime Story.

So I was sitting up watching Planet Terror in the large lounge with the Godmother when I hear a plaintive bleat in the distance.

I was a bit grumbly but put a hold on that, because she’d been pretty good about going to bed this evening. Bedtime is generally okay until I’ve left Magilla’s room, with numerous calls and complaints about various things until I get snarky.

Tonight, though, I decided not to fuss. Plus it was around 10pm, so she’d definitely been sacked out.

She was just wanting the toilet, so I gave my permission then got back to the movie.

She did what she had to, then came down to the lounge and I gave her a big hug and sent her on her way.

A minute or so later, I decided to stick my head in her room to see how she was going, and she was just sliding back into sleep; something I’ve not seen for a long time.

So, I sat on the side of her bed, gave her another cuddle, and as she was drifting off I whispered in her ear: I love you lots and lots and lots and lots and monster lots.

She smiled, so I whispered some more: You’re my favourite girl.

More smiles, so once more: Have sweet dreams, chicken…..

And then I left her to it.

Magilla will definitely sleep well tonight, I reckon.

So will I.

Those are the times that keep parents from murdering those precious little muffins the rest of the time.....LOL

As for me re-upping, check my blog for the March entries.

Someone's gotta do it...
...and it's those times like you just described that help motivate a soldier to do his job - to keep times like those possible for everyone.

Glad to see you're back in the saddle Nilk, I'd almost stopped checking for new posts.

Where you been hiding?

P.S. What have you done with the word verification thingy, its says 'nllks'...

Woz, having to work for a living, and running around after a preppie gets in the way of blogging, and there's so much going on in the world it's hard to keep up.

I've got several meg of files and bookmarks, for example, for a post I want to do on the patriarchal model and how feminism has been working very successfully to destroy it.

Then there's keeping tabs on what protected minorities are getting up to here and around the world.

Bloody presbys.

I'm still rather active.

Drop me an email if you want rwdbanon at yahoo dot com dot aus and take out the typo.

I also post over at Tizona's

Just too lazy to put it in the blogroll.
