New Carpet to match the curtains.

by statia on August 14, 2007

So we’re getting new carpet installed (much to my dismay as I fucking hate carpet, but with two dogs that love to race up and down the hall during a certain little person’s bedtime (and don’t tell me area rugs and runners would do the trick, because my dogs would run next to them)). They’ve been here since yesterday. Yesterday tried to kill me in the form of traffic and physical therapy.

But that’s not the point.

Today, I have the Mini sleeping on my bed for a quick cat nap.

Why is it that I will tip toe around during naps and after bedtime to avoid waking him up, yet they are doing the equivalent of jackhammering in my family room downstairs, while I run a fan for white noise (which isn’t really helping) and he’s sprawled on my bed, passed out like he went on a bar tour?

They’re amazing, aren’t they? We joke that we could run a marching band thru Tabby’s room and she’d never wake up. It’s not too far off too … unless we really want her to sleep, that is. Cuz then she’s all perky-like.

To slow down your dogs, get one of those plastic runners and install it upside down so the pointy ends are up.

If nothing else, it’d be pretty damn funny.

I love DD’s comment! Haha! Actually, we had a friend do that for their cats because they kept going to the bathroom in a corner of their living room (so disgusting) and so they flipped the plastic runners upside down and the cats stayed away.

Anyway, I’ve noticed as my son gets older it is easier and easier to do stuff around the house (aka: making noise) and he will sleep through it. I even vacuumed last night and he never made a peep.

Don’t let the baby stay used to absolute quiet for naps or sleeping. They got to learn to sleep through some noise.

When I was a baby, my parents would take me to a beer joint and put me in front of the jukebox**. I never made a peep. Because of this, a train could now come through my bedroom and I would never know.

**If you ever met me in person, this would explain a lot. :)
