Duck This Shot

Baby is teething pretty hard core these days.  The tooth lurks there in the darkness, ready to bring the pain, but it hasn't quite busted all the way through.  Last night was definitely the worst it has affected her sleep so far.  She went to bed around 8 after a long afternoon nap, but could not stay asleep.  Around midnight, after about 5 wakings, I had finally gotten her to sleep in her bed.  I snuggled down into the sheets, and finally started to drift off... when suddenly, the white noise stopped, AGAIN.

This marks the four night in a row, but we are both so tired that we kept forgetting to investigate it during the day.  I weighed the consequences of laying there in silence and hoping she would sleep despite it, or getting up to re-start the white noise and risk waking her.  The crying quickly began.  I picked her up and tried to soothe her, while hiding the cell phone from her view so I could send this fuming email to my husband.

"I'd the lady night that giving eke noise rooms my night. FINALLY get her down and out style. Duck this shot. We need a plan. What are we going to do? Use your old phone instead? Mrs shakes? I don't care, but simmering changes."

To which he responded:
"I have no idea what this says, but I'm sorry about the bad night, Mrs. Shakes."

And thus a pen name was born.

Luckily, the white noise persevered through the rest of the night, and this email was just the laugh I needed to start off Monday with no sleep.
