Trapped in the Water Closet

30 Days and 30 Blogs
Day 20

So I’m writing this blog while on the toilet. No…not in a gross way. I’m sitting here waiting for my son to fall asleep.

You see, I was shaving while my wife was putting him down and I didn’t finish fast enough. In fact, I stupidly shut the door to minimize the sounds of my shaving routine. The problem is, the door squeaks loudly and will disrupt his process of calming down and falling asleep. And so, I wait…

8:19 – My son is crying because he thrashed around in bed and hit his head. That’s why we don’t thrash around in bed, kid. Guess I’ll tear up that Mensa membership application when I get out of here.

8:24 – Now my son is counting to 12 over and over again. It’s very cute…usually. Right now it has the reverse effect of counting sheep, it’s keeping him awake longer.

8:31 – Now my son is slapping his feet on the wall like he’s trying to reenact Gene Kelly’s ceiling dance from Royal Wedding (look it up)

8:37 – I think he may actually be settling down. OOH!!! I just heard a yawn. I may get sprung from my bathroom prison soon.

8:39 – He’s so quiet, I can hear his iPod “Bedtime” playlist. Currently the music from Soarin’ Over California. When he’s finally tall enough to go on this, he’s gonna nod off immediately.

8:43 – Still hear him tossing and turning. I think I’ll watch an episode of Doctor Who while I’m here.

8:44 – Well, forget that. I don’t have my headphones and there’s no step between loud enough to be heard through the door and total silence. *sigh* Time to cruise Facebook.

12:39 – I got into a back and forth with my cousin on Facebook and then realized my son had fallen asleep. I was so excited, I forgot to update this blog. Well, I’m out of the bathroom and in my own bed. Nighty night. See you next blog.
