Shepard can't sleep

Yesterday evening my sweet hubby let me go shopping all by myself... what a wonderful treat! When I got back home the boys were all tucked into bed and the kitchen was clean! Ahhhhhh! So, as I was putting some stuff away I was surprised to see Josiah and Shepard come into the kitchen, but they were having a little squabble and were coming for some parental help. Apparently Shepard couldn't sleep and kept commenting about it which was also keeping Josiah awake. So, I was about to just send them back to bed with instructions to be quiet and try to go to sleep when Shepard started talking about a commercial. At first we thought he was just trying to change the subject and find a way to stay up longer... but, he was actually trying to explain the sleep situation. Here's what he said... "You know that commercial where daytime comes in the middle of the night?? And the chicken starts saying TaDaDaDaTaDa!?" (Already I am amused at his description of this commercial... it's really a rooster and he should say CockADoodleDoo.) Shepard goes on to explain, "Well, that's me!" As I'm trying to take in this amusing information Josiah pipes up and asks, "You mean you need some Ambien CR?" I am quite sure that if anyone had asked me what medicine this commercial was for I wouldn't have had any idea... but Josiah sure did. So then Shepard's face lights up and he sort of snaps his fingers together as if Josiah has found the answer of all answers... you can see him start to pump his head up and down and then he very seriously, but excitedly says, "YES, I need some of that 'amnesia' stuff!"


  1. what a funny and cute story...i was smiling the whole way through :)

  2. You have a great knack for writing the boys antics, and getting across each of their special inflections!! I can hear them talking while I read!!

    Love you all!
