I'm copying part of my sister's post this morning!
Michelle posted a funny story about waking up from a nap confused last night. She frantically called me. This was our conversation...
M: "I am so sorry"
J: "Why, What's wrong?"
M: "I am supposed to be there... You're party. It's Friday.. I am so sorry"
J: "No it's not..."
J: "It's Thursday Michelle"
M: "Oh, oh yeah, that's right"
J: "Did you fall asleep?"
M: "Yeah at like 7:30, and just woke up... That really sucks that it's only Thursday"
J: laughing "Yeah, now you have to go back to bed and go to work tomorrow..."
What a dork! But seriously, do you ever wake up from naps confused like that? I can't really remember a time that I have done that, BUT...
Mr. T is the best at waking up confused! He has been like this his whole life. When he was little he would stumble around like a zombie after a nap! As he's gotten older, he talks about some really crazy things as he's waking up. He once told me to be quiet or I would be arrested for treason. WHAT?!?! It's great for a good laugh now and then! Just this past Tuesday he had another of his "episodes." I told this story to Michelle to make her feel better and now I'm going to share it with all of you...you know, just for a laugh!
Tuesday afternoon T and R had a track meet after school that lasted until about 8:00. We stopped at McDonald's to pick up dinner for everyone (hey, it's no big deal, it not like we had McD for dinner the night before...cough, cough). After dinner, I sent R to the shower and T headed to his room. I said, "Do NOT go to sleep, you have to take a shower tonight!" His response, "I won't." At 10:00, I headed upstairs to out the girls to bed (yes, I still "put" my kids to bed even though they're teenagers!) I went into T's room to send him to the shower. Of course, the boy was as snug as a bug, asnooze in his bed. Here is the conversation we had...
J: "MR T! I told you not to go to sleep!"
T: "I'm not asleep"
J: "Wake up and go get a shower!"
J: "MR T! Wake up! You have to take a shower tonight!"
T: "OK, I'm just gonna wait a little while."
J: "Wait a little while for what?"
T: "I'm just gonna wait until my mom comes up here."
J: "I AM your mom and you need to get up!"
............... (no response)
J: "T! Get up!"
T: "Huh? What? What's going on?"
J: "I AM your mother and you need to take a shower!"
T: "GRRRR! YOU ARE SO WEIRD!" and he goes to the bathroom and slams the door.
Yes, he actually growled at me! And no, he did not take a shower. I think he just sat in the bathroom for a few minutes. He then proceeded to go back to bed! At 11:30, he came downstairs for a drink of water and had no recollection of our previous encounter! "Hey Mom, I fell asleep. I'll just take a shower in the morning," and back to bed he went.
