I woke up on Monday night to Rose standing next to the bed. I don’t think she even tried to wake me. She just stood there until I finally woke up from her presence.
I generally wake up pretty friendly. I asked her what was wrong. She said she had an earache.
A few months back when Michael was out of town I fell asleep around 10 p.m. I woke up around 1:30 in the morning with Rose rubbing lotion into my feet. She scared the crap out of me. I did yell when I woke up to someone touching me. When I stopped yelling she said to me “Your feet are very, very dry.”
I guess she couldn’t sleep, but I’m not sure what moved her to give me a foot massage.
What worried me about that scenario was how long it took me to wake up with someone touching me! She was onto the second foot!! Apparently I have no hope of waking up if someone broke in.
Walsh just crawls into bed. He doesn’t try to rouse us. Lilina can’t climb in by herself so she just stands by the bed repeating “mom” “mom” “mom” “mom” until I finally wake up and lift her into bed. I don’t think they ever go to Michael’s side. I wonder why.
How do your kids wake you up if they need you during the night? Whose side of the bed do they go to? How do you wake up – nice or grumpy? Would you have freaked out if someone was rubbing your feet?
