Bomb Squad


Kid's sick with a stomach bug, and while putting her to bed at 8:30 p.m., I fell asleep without having done my nightly task of doing the dishes and cleaning up the kitchen.

Doing that and loading the dishwasher at 2 a.m. without waking anyone (Mrs F) up is akin to successfully diffusing a bomb on horseback.

I can't believe I did it, and that success saved me from The Wrath of Mom now (for waking her or Baby) and/or in the morning (greeted by a sink and counter littered with dirty dishes).

Well done, sir! I've lived those moments recently as well. :)

For the record... it woke me up.

How about some white noise machines in the bedrooms?

That might help. Especially with the cacophony of neighborhood dogs that start up around dawn.
Unfortunately our bedrooms are off the kitchen... it's almost impossible to do anything in there and not have it wake me up... after a certain point the kids will sleep through anything.
