i'm 34 years old, and i 'm afraid of the dark.
michael photographed a wedding near tahoe this weekend, while the kids and i stayed home. and here is the thing- i don't do dark well. i sleep with one ear open... okay really, i don't sleep.
first night, i had all 3 kids slumber partying in my room, door locked, keys and phone next to me (are you laughing??! it's not funny, i'm seriously afraid). i think i may have dozed off around 2:00 a.m. and woke at 6:00ish. the kids were well reasted and ready for saturday a.m. cartoons and saturday a.m. b-fast (which is michael's thing).
second night, the kids were in their own beds (they were too shuffly the night before), determined i said, "i'm not afraid, i'm not afraid, i'm not afraid." so i climbed into bed about 10:30, and sang (in my head) praise songs, and told myself again and again "i'm not afraid," i had a phone on each side of the bed, my keys and shoes near by, and an escape plan if they're was an intruder (stop laughing, it's not funny!), and i think i finally dozed off again at 2:00 a.m. ish. ughhh!
and know this, i'm not an altogether wimpy person (okay a little wimpy), but i brave through a lot of things i do not want to brave through. but i think next time michael goes out of town, i will have a friend over, or go stay at a friends...
because my kids are afraid of me when i don't get sleep because i am afraid of the dark.
what are you afraid of?
here are a few pix from the wedding. this couple had some creative touches on their big day!
the bride did not have a traditional wedding dress, she chose a party dress instead as this was..
