I have done a lot of things in my day.
I have hiked to snowy mountain peaks.
I have taken public transportation (no, I don't want to talk about it).
I cut my own bangs.
I remove splinters with a pocket knife.
I was almost attacked by a bear.
I recently rode my bike without the proper amount of brakes (scarier than the bear).
But I don't do one thing: I don't wake sleeping babies.
I hope the other moms at the play date understand.
But maybe they don't. When I checked my horoscope, it said this:
You're the liquid that takes the shape of its container, Pisces. Even though this may seem like the most non-confrontational way to do things, you may find that it's actually a cause of great frustration for you and others. People may be annoyed that you're always following someone else's lead instead of taking the initiative. Try to be more assertive while continuing to be easygoing.
Fine. I am going to be more assertive with Thing 2.
GO TO SLEEP NOW, LITTLE BABY!
WAKE UP NOW, LAZY LITTLE BABY!
Nope. That is not going to work for me.... Until my kids are older, consider me liquid. Liquid in the form of wine.... in a wine glass. Flaky schmaky, my children need their sleep.
