11/13

I'm not sure how many times my alarm went off this morning or how many times I had to get up out of bed to go to Zac last night. It was a lot, that's all I really know.

It started around 11:30pm last night when I heard the first sounds of a baby stirring. Well, screaming at the top of his lungs and throwing himself against the bars of his crib is a more fitting description. I went to him, asked Mr. Tugboat to move his leg over, and brought Zac into bed with the large tattoed man. Zac just laid there in my arms looking up at the Mr., then smiling at me, and looking up at him. I put him back to bed where he slept for about another hour. Then he woke up again. I went to him. Apologized to Mr. Tugboat. Tried to go back to sleep.

Can you see the pattern developing?

I'm not sure if the Mr. will ever agree to spend the night again with The-Child-That-Does-Not-Sleep. He had to wake up this morning at 5am to drive back down south to Port of Houston to board his tugboat by 8am. When my alarm went off, I thought I was going to have to peel him off the ceiling. I have - how can I put this? - an alarm that would wake the dead. Mr. Tugboat said that when the alarm went off that he started looking around for the fire extinguisher instead of the snooze button.

I think he left around 6am or so, but I can't guarantee that. I was so tired from the crying, the cuddling, the Orajel and infant Tylenol, and the alarms. So many alarms. I finally dragged my butt out of bed around 7:30am this morning and impressed myself by making it into the office at 8:05am. Oh, yes, I love living close to where I work.

So, Mr. Tugboat has seen the blog now. I kept referencing it in various ways, which made me appreciate, even more, people that choose NOT to tell their intimate partners or close friends about the existence of an online journal where you tell strangers about your personal life. How exactly do you do that again? He said that he's only been able to read the entries and comments about him and he would like to thank everyone that told me I should stop freaking out and overanalyzing the situation.

So, yeah, I like him. I like spending time with him and his son and seeing what a great Dad he is. I think he's great in general. Really, he could be too good. He could be an alien from outerspace or a convicted felon in five states, but that's just me overthinking the situation.

Okay, I spent too long trying to compose a funny comment but it kept coming out sounding prudish and really, I'm anything but. So instead you get this piece o' crap comment. I believe that when a person is in someone else's bed s/he is much more fogiving that we think. Plus, doesn't Tugboat have a child of his own? Is he reading this right now?

Oops, I just reread my comment and realized that the sentence about a person being forgiving in bed revealed a bit more about me than I intended.

IPJ - Mr. Tugboat is on a tugboat right now and whether or not he's reading this will depend on whether or not one of the guys in his crew brought along a laptop with a universal wireless card.

He does have a child of his own, but I don't necessarily think that he really wants to watch my child play me like a fiddle all evening, demanding attention and more gum numbing agents.

That's just my perspective though. He probably thinks differently.

*waves to Mr. Tugboat*

Dating as a mom has to be rough. I give you mad props for finding the energy to do so, especially on those sleepless tot nights.

April - Yes, it was his teeth. I got your e-mail and thought about you when I was at the doctor's office. The Doc was looking in his mouth going, "Yep, look at the swelling on that side. I bet that hurts a lot, huh, buddy." I pretty much felt like a total jerk for not seeing that before.
