Hit by a Pitch

WTF Wednesday: I jacked my child’s toy.

without comments

I stole this from my child.One of the gifts Soren received for his birthday is this giraffe. The giraffe (who doesn’t have a name yet) is very soft and makes four soothing sounds that help you fall asleep. I kind of absconded with it.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a monster. Soren gets to play with the giraffe during the daytime. When we go anywhere soothing sounds might be beneficial, he can bring the giraffe.

But for now, at night, the giraffe is all mine. Ben still gives me shit about it. He’s all, “I can’t believe you stole dude’s toy!” I know. I feel bad about it. But the thing is, this giraffe has magical sleep-inducing properties. I’ve been having trouble sleeping for years now, especially since Soren was born. I take forever to fall asleep and then wake up and can’t fall back asleep. It sucks. Since I’ve had the giraffe, though, I’ve been sleeping much better, almost, you could say, like a baby. I set the timer for 45 minutes, push the “relax” button, and am off to dreamland. I still wake up, but I start the relaxing giraffe sounds again and am back to sleep before I even get annoyed about being awake. It’s amazing.

I might end up buying another one for Soren. I guess I’m kind of attached to this guy.
