How am I supposed to sleep?

Okay, let me confess something to you.

I am truly, madly, deeply in love.

In love with sleep.

It is fantastic. I love it. To all of you mothers out there? I don't know how you function on such little sleep. That is my biggest fear of children. Not the diapers, not the fact that I will have no idea what I am doing and my poor offspring will likely struggle to fit into society based on my lack of knowledge when administering parental guidance, not the teenage years. Not the increased drug use among children teenagers nor the plight of teenage hormones, etc. None of the stuff that should actually concern me. For those things, I feel that I am well equipped to deal with what comes my way. (Again, to the mothers? Please do not burst my bubble on that. Thank you.) What I am most concerned about is the sleep deprivation. Actually, when I put it in writing like that it sounds pretty selfish. Hmm, I guess that is just something I will have to ponder. In my sleep.

So, let me ask you this question. How am I supposed to sleep when DM does this to me in the mornings?
Side Note: Don't be too jealous of the photographic genius of this picture. If you work really, really hard and spend countless hours learning about shutter speed, composition, aperture, ISO, etc. one day you will be able to achieve a blurry masterpiece like this. Don't rush it. With hard work and dedication, it will come. Be patient.


  1. My mom asked me to paw woo a note: believe it or not, once upon a time, she used to be a champion sleeper...

    But fur some reason - and it is NOT due to me fur I'm a furry good sleeper and RARELY get her up - she's diskhovered it isn't khwite what it used to be!

    So snag it whilst woo khan!

    BTW, excellent pikh!


  2. Was that at about 0430? 'Cuz if everyone here isn't out of bed by then, that's what we do! Ha roo roo roo!
    Play bows,

  3. One problem with that picture. Sunshine is coming through the window. The Herd has pounced way before then.

  4. LOL! We had to get a king sized bed to accommodate the humans since they were taking up too much space on the queen.

  5. One of the advantages of our bed being upstairs and having gates on the kitchen doorways where the pups sleep.

    But Mom is still laughing at your pic.
