Year 3, Day 273

Miles woke up crying in the middle of the night, and I went to his room to see what was amiss. He had peed — a LOT — and needed a wardrobe change and a fresh set of bedsheets. He was still pretty out of it, and in an effort to keep him from completely waking up, I had Jaclyn bring him to our bed to try to calm him back to sleep while I stripped his bed.

Well it didn’t work. By the time I had finished and returned to the bedroom, Miles was sitting up (taking up a majority of my side of the bed, as usual) wide awake.

“I want milk,” he said as I entered.

Again, in the interest of trying to get him comfortable enough to go back to sleep, I quickly fulfilled his request. I asked if he could scoot over so I could get into bed, and he actually complied. Things were going well.

“I want Animal Crossing.”

I groaned. “You want to play Animal Crossing?”

“No, DADDY play Animal Crossing,” Miles clarified.

“Miles, it’s 1:30 in the morning,” I sighed. “Do I have to?”


And that’s how I ended up playing Animal Crossing at 1:30 in the morning. But hey, at least he went back to sleep.
