Scout has been having a difficult time sleeping through the night. She would prefer to sleep with Wade and I, but we would prefer that she did not. So, for the better part of the week, she will wake up one or two times a night, and cry out, "I want my mommy-uh." This is not a knew phrase for Scout. She has been saying this for months, mostly when she is sick, and the word "mommy-uh" has been a mystery to me. She does not call me "mommy-uh" during the day, so why would she call me "mommy-uh" at night? Well, very early this morning, I solved the mystery of "mommy-uh." Scout woke up screaming, "I want my mommy-uh" this morning around 1:30. And maybe it was the repetition of this phrase, or my early morning brain kicking in, but it FINALLY made sense. Translation: "I want my mommy to come." Oh yeah, I rock!
