But I *AM* in Bed – Silly Mom

06 Mar

20130321-084323.jpgThis is me and mom’s leg in the picture – snort.  Every night after dinner and dishes, me and mom snuggle on the couch.  It’s our time.  Mom kicks the recliner back and we pull the blankets close to get all comfy and snuggable (you can see my Egyptian cotton sheet up there with us – it’s so silky!).

She pets my back while she catches up on her emails, blogs, Facebook and watches television.  It’s our bonding time.  I keep my snout right on her leg so I know if she moves.  That’s how deep I sleep.

Sometimes I sleep so deep, I actually snore.  I can’t help it.  I know I’m completely safe right there next to mom and she won’t let anything happen to me.

Every night when it’s time to go to bed, me and mom go through the same game.  She starts softly telling me, “Bacon, wake up, it’s time to go to bed”.  Do you know how ironic that is?  Mom – I’m already asleep in bed – snort.  So every night I pretend to be asleep and hard to wake up.  Sounds like a typical kid putting off bedtime doesn’t it?  She’ll keep being persistent like a fly buzzing around your head, “Bacon, it’s time to go to bed young man.”  And, me being pig headed like I am will continue to pretend to be asleep.

Then mom picks up her tone a bit and tells me, “If you don’t go get ready for bed now, you’re going to miss your bedtime story.”  Bedtime story – did someone say bedtime story?  Of course, I immediately wake up to this, jump down and run to my room to get ready for bed.  By the time mom brushes her teeth and comes in my room, me, Bashful and the other rock clan are safely in our bed.  Mom always tucks us in, kisses us both goodnight and reads us a story.  You can’t miss her bedtime stories!

But tonight on the couch after dinner, we’ll go through the same thing all over again.  Why?  Because it’s what me and mom do of course – snort.

    LOL nothing like routine Bacon. I too hate it when she gets me up and says time for bed and I am already in bed. Peeps for you. They sure are strange ones.
    Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

      Routines are good and I like them but when you are all warm and soft and cuddly asleep with mom, why get up to “go to bed”? Snorts PLOL (piggy laughing out loud). XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, like you, Mom and I have a nighttime routine too – it also involves her recliner, my snoring, and a cozy blankie…….I think we’re both VERY lucky boys don’t you???

    Hugs, Sammy

    You are so adorable. I had a doggie a long time ago who I swear would scrunch her eyes tight if I tried to wake her. It is nearly midnight in aussieland so our house better shut down.

    It’s a cute ritual. And to get a bedtime story every night that’s the best!

      Yep, either a story or a short cartoon on my television. Daddy says I kind of have it made. You think? XOXO – Bacon

    What a great Mommy you have! Mommy’s are the best and always know how to care for us with lots of love!

    I wanted to reach out to my fellow bloggers and ask for their assistance! I am participating in a fundraiser called Pledge For Pets and we are helping raise donations for the Animal Protective League. If you can help us and make a donation, here is the link: We are not asking everyone to empty their wallets, but even a $5 donation can help make the difference in an animals life, and it helps them find their forever home! If you can help, we would appreciate it greatly! Hugs from our two rescued dogs!

    Aw. Your nose on her leg means you see her as your comfort. Your safe spot. You touched my heart, little piggie!

    Oh Bacon, we really are a special kind of pet aren’t we? Your bedtime is just like mine with some cuddling under the blankets and some back scratches. If only you and I could have a sleepover one time!

      Wouldn’t it be awesome!?! We would have so much fun. AND, we could give our humans a break. XOXO – Bacon

    Moms are funny that way. They think sleeping only happens in bed, so they wake us up to go to sleep. Wait. What?? It’s counterintuitive!

    Love and licks,

    • PigLove

      03/06/2014 at 3:19 pm

      Exactly! At least last night I got to sleep in the big bed with mom/dad and the two purr things. I love it when we do that. It’s so much fun – thank goodness for a King size bed! XOXO – Bacon

    That’s such a great routine, sweetie! Have a PURRFECT time snuggling with your mommy! And don’t forget to pretend to be asleep… 😉 xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino
