I am a swiss army knife.



according to my husband.

at 2:30 a.m.

the explanation:

I got up to use the bathroom at 2:00 a.m.ish --- this resulted in a certain dog waking up and needing to go out --- I took care of the Scoob and was almost home-free tucked back in bed when I hear Ty start coughing (I HATE COUGHS. I would take the stomach flu ANY DAY over coughs. stomach bugs last 3 days MAX. coughs, at least at our house GO ON FOREVER. enough about that.) So... I proceed to get back out of bed and take care of coughing Ty. at last I made it back to bed. no sooner did Andrew wake up to use the bathroom. I was annoyed.

the explanation:
Andrew is a "piggy-back-pee'er." huh? THAT'S RIGHT. A "PIGGY-BACK-PEE'ER." he gets up and uses the bathroom only AFTER I have have used the bathroom and then taken care of all our little dependents. TRUE STORY!

I would become the piggy-back-pee'er. but I can't hold it these days.

and here's is Andrew's sweet? response to my annoyance (is that a word?):
"Ame: You are a swiss army knife. YOU CAN DO IT ALL!"

ahhh... I felt so much better. (that's just what EVERY GIRL wants to hear) .... until 4:30a.m. when... well, you know....................

Well, you've got to face it - you really are a Swiss Army Knife, you really can do it all . . . just in hindsight you should probably have not let him know that little fact, then you would have been home free and back to bed!

Oh and thanks for the warning about the cough vs the stomach flu. I'll definately remember that down the road.
