Calm Down!

This morning Bugga woke up crying at 7am. I ignored him for a little while, hoping he would go back to bed. After a few minutes of crying, I heard Buddha yell, "Bugga! CALM DOWN!" He yelled this over and over for a minute or so and pretty soon I didn't hear Bugga anymore. Then Buddha came dancing into the bedroom - his code for "I need to pee" - and I asked him if Bugga was asleep again. He was. I guess Buddha holds more sway with the little guy than I do. I'm glad he's obedient to someone anyway.

OH, I wish Claire had that kinda power over Morgan. Its nice that you have a little helper to talk some sense into Anders during the early morning hours!

What a fantastic little assistant you have in Soren! Where did he get "calm down!"? You or Dan? :)

Way to go! It's a good one! How is Soren tooth by the way? See you soon hopefully!

How funny! You should have Soren tell him what to do more often. Once in the car Halle was fussing and Kev said Halle go to sleep. I was laughing saying that will never work. In a matter of minutes she fell asleep. I guess at that age they really do listen to what you say!

I think it's funny he was told to calm down.
