Last night Baby woke up in the middle of the night. This is not uncommon. She started crying out, "I want Mommy! I want Mommy!" Also, not uncommon. She just likes to pull on my heartstrings, that one does.
I ignored her and hoped she would fall back to sleep. Sometimes this method is successful, some times not. Most often not, actually, but that's a different story.
Well, she was so tired, yet so determined to keep yelling, that her cries started to change. First "Mommy" morphed into "Meemee." She yelled "I want Meemee!" a few times. Then she seemed to listen to herself and knew that didn't make sense. So she changed it.
I laughed to myself as she cried out, "I want Mickey! I want Mickey!"
Then she fell back asleep. Perhaps to dream of Mickey?
