Real men aren't afraid of pink

It's the true sign of a seasoned parent, isn't it?  Sleep is more important than the fact that you are doing it anywhere else in the house than in your own bed.

Recliner, sofa, hanging off the side of the crib....

Or on your daughter's pink, ultra-girlie, Hello Kitty sheets.

My husband worked really late Monday night. 

I had a feeling I wasn't gonna see him until morning, so I made up my mind to get some rest.

But because I'm a bit of a chicken, and don't like to sleep alone if he's not around, I let Audrey stay in bed with me.

This morning, I woke up with a start at 5 am, looking for Mr W, but not seeing him on his side of the bed.  I'm not sure if I see his stuff over there, either (cell phone, etc).  Wow.  That's a loooong day, I thought.  I nodded off again, because the next thing I heard was the alarm.

As I groggily made my way to the bathroom, I saw Mr W's cell phone by the bed.  I moved Audrey over, and went looking for him so he could come lay down.  I figure he's asleep in the magic chair....no...the sofa....no.   I know I'm not wearing my glasses, but I don't think I'd miss a man in my bed.

So I go on a search, and I have a feeling I know where I might find him...

I have to stifle a giggle.   There he lay, dark blue undershirt contrasting against the light pink Hello Kitty sheets.  He didn't even take off the guard rail.   He is using her pillow.  Niiiice.  Cute!

Was I tempted to take a picture?  Oh, you bet I was.

However, I know how persuasive Remo can be, and I decided it might be better to take a mental picture as that kind of photo isn't likely to be emailedto everyone in the department.   There are training purposes, and then there are training purposes...

Yup, real men aren't afraid of pink.

And you just gotta love that.
