Tukey: "Mom? Mom? Mommy..."
Tukey: "I'm hungry."
Me, burrowing my head deeper in the covers: "Mphwmph whazzeee timeizit?"
Tukey: "Mommy, I'm hungry, now!"
Me: "Mphmmmmm... ten minutes, OK?"
Tukey: "But Mommy, I'm STARVING!"
Me: "Tukey, honey... I was up till 2:30 in the morning. I'm tired. I was busy, doing work, and then googling people, like my ex-boyfriend, and some other people, and then I was surfing on some blogs. Honey, I'm sooooooo tired. Can't you let me have ten more minutes? Please honey? I promise I'll get up in a couple minutes and get you something to eat? Is your brother up? Can't he get you a bagel? Tell Ajers to get you a bagel and he can pour you some milk? Huh, honey? Puuuuhleeeease? I am soooooooo tired, baby."
Me: "Honey, please? OK? Just ten minutes....."
[Insert a dream where I discover I am pregnant and I'm the age I'm now and no one's happy for me cuz I'm 38 and they're all like, "are you crazy? What are you doing getting pregnant at your age" and I am wearing the EPT around my neck like a necklace waiting for people to ask me what it is so I can tell them I'm pregnant and they can tell me I'm stupid and crazy....]
Me: "Yeah mzmzmphwmphhhhh?"
Me: "What hon?"
Tukey: "Remember you said you'd get me some breakfast in ten minutes?"
Tukey: "Well, can you come down now? It's been TWO HOURS!"
