1am conversation

Cannon: Mom.
Me: What Cannon?
Cannon: There's something missing from my power ranger costume.
Me: What's missing?
Cannon: A speeder.
Me: Okay. We'll talk about it in the morning. Now go potty and go back to bed.

Cannon still wakes up every night, usually around 11:30pm, to go to the bathroom. If it is between 11 and 1 that he wakes up then he stumbles around and cries and moans all the way to the bathroom. If one of us doesn't meet him on the way then he first cries his way to our room to tell us that he has to go to the bathroom. If it is after 1 then he wakes up enough not to cry but he still has to come in to tell us that he has to go to the bathroom. Every night. I remind him before bed that he doesn't have to tell us, he can just go, and I ask him to please quietly come down but it is just his habit to come to our room first. We don't think he is really awake during the 11:30 crying to the bathroom time. I'm sure he'll grow out of it soon...

What is a speeder?

I love this post!

Lark said...

I have the same question. A speedo?

I think speeder as in a vehicle to ride, like in Star Wars. I'm glad he didn't bring it up again because that would have been hard to make.

One night while I was visiting and Cannon got up, I heard him crying after he came back up to bed. When I went in to see what was wrong, he had walked through the Legos that were all over the floor and his feet hurt! I could relate to that!
