“I did it!! Hooray!”

One of Brian’s favorite phrases.  He particularly likes to repeat it obsessively when he comes and jumps on top of me at 5:30 in the morning.

I like to pull the blankets over my head.  I have this irrational train of thought that if I just keep my eyes closed and pretend to sleep, he’ll go away.

It doesn’t work.

This morning after he was jumping on my bed for twenty minutes and having repeated “I did it!! Hooray!” for the 378th time I yelled back with as much sarcasm as my tired mind could muster, “Yes Brian- you did it!  You succeeded in waking everyone up in the neighborhood!  Hooray!!”

He paused for a minute.  Did that half-smile that I love and said, “Hooray!”

He’s lucky he’s so darn cute.
