This Is Why Mothers Don't Take Naps
So, I lay down this morning for a well-deserved and much-needed nap.
Sometime about an hour into my nap, this happened:
Generally, greyhounds only roo when they hear other greyhounds rooing. It's really an amazing thing to hear, unless you live with a greyhound that mistakes a baby crying and a phone ringing for one of its landsmen setting out the roo alert. Then it's just a pain in the neck, particularly when it wakes you up.
Needless to say, Obie woke me up.
I was halfway down the stairs, frantic to know why the baby was crying downstairs and setting off the dog and why the hell I was asleep while LO was by himself on a different floor of the house before I remembered that LO was at daycare, where I had taken him specifically so that I could get some sleep.
I'd like to get a hold of the motherhood owner's manual so I can figure out how to turn that off.
