what a nice night...
I've got bb3 taping and west wing...
soon it will be time to lose myself in the big comfy sofa with Z and watch the tube.

The kiddies are a'bed although not quite asleep... they've been very tossy goofy at bedtime.
We bought a chincy cd boom box for their room... Enya is softly drifting from their room as I type.
They have a couple of lava lamps for night lights ($9 at wallyland).. the scene is pretty surreal with
the sparkles and floaty green blobs drifing around making slow moving shadows that are basically
dancing to Enya's hypnotic notes.

'come on sleep!

OH... so last night...

We're halfway through watching Magnolia (blech)
and rather engrossed by the absurdity of some point in the movie...
perhaps about 12:30 am.
I think I noticed a shadow move out the corner of my eye... I look... nothing.
A minute or so later, Edwards tiny little big head sort half pokes round a corner.
Ok, besides it looking very Kilroy-was-here-like it kinda made me jump!
Regardless... he is looking bright eyed and bushy tailed (at 12:30) and says quite clearly;
"You should get the pen off the shelf and put the pen away..."

We're staring at him...
almost incredulous...
waiting for the dawning of recognition...
It's hits me...
but it will never hit Z.
You see she's - I now realize - just a tad too short to ever see this.

You see Edward sleeps here...

(click it for a bigger pic... er... same goes for the rest of 'em)

From there, when he is lying down and facing towards the door...
He see's this...

And in that picture you can see a small something above the door to our bedroom...

Which just happens to be a pen... above the door trim edge...

This was a major big deal for him... not finding it... but that we put it away.

Ok... time for BB.

    as I read and read and read about "Selfies"... I quietly say to myself... "um... yeah, tell me again how selfies are a new thing." lol. :)
