3 a.m.

my brain: “Can’t sleep, can’t sleep. Must sleep, must sleep… What to do? Hmm, Violet is lookin’ mighty pretty…”

5 minutes later

my brain: “Fail. Oh well, just try to sleep.”

6:45 a.m.

Alarm goes off. I roll over to cuddle with Violet.

Violet: “Were you seriously trying to seduce me at 3 in the morning?!?”

Me: “Baby, I have neeeeeeeeeeds.”

Violet: “Well, you neeeeeeeed to get your neeeeeeeeeds to neeeeeeeeed at a reasonable hour!”
