One of “Those” Nights

23 Jun

Last night started off like it normally does.  Mom ran around the house getting everything ready for Monday – the start of another glorious week – rolls piggy eyes.  She told me to get ready for bed and I did.  Mom then came in and gave me a strawberry and told me a short bedtime story.  You know – the normal things for this little piggy.  After my story, she kissed me on the forehead, told me good night, she loved me and left my room.

I wasn’t all the way asleep yet though.  I tried to go to sleep.  I closed my eyes tight and dreamed about my sweet purr thing.  I dreamed about chasing sheep over fences.  I even tried to focus on my counting skills.  But nope – nothing.  Sleep just wouldn’t come.

So I did what all little piggies do.  I pulled up my Egyptian cotton sheet around me and let the silk rub against my piggy skin.  It was nice and cozy!  Then out of the blue – BAM – it hit me.  I had to tinkle.  Why do you do that nature?  Why when you get the most comfortable surroundedby your silk sheets do you hit us and we have to go tinkle?  Explain that.

So you get up, stumble over to your wee-wee pad and take a wizzle.  And yes for the first time I will show you a picture of me wizzing.  Why?  Because that mother of mine doesn’t know about BOUNDARIES.  That’s right mom.  Sometimes a pig needs PRIVACY.  Hint – hint.

But do notice my techniques.  Tail up in the back, legs stretched out.  I think it’s a great form and I would give myself a ten – snorts.  And notice the light in the picture.  I didn’t turn on the light.  This light is from a piggy nightlight that my cousin Sammy sent me a while back.  I ❤ that nightlight.  Thanks cousin!

So you take care of “When Nature Calls” and then you are in a pickle.  I mean, mommy already tucked me in and now she’s asleep.  I’ve done my business but I need some mommy loving.  I do what I do best.  I pitter patter over to my bedroom door and call for her by snorting and stomping.  This concerns her so she rushes to me.  I think I have her trained… you think?

So mommy came back in my room to tuck me back into bed.  But now I’m thirsty – go figure.  I am a kid at heart – snorts.  I convince her that I need a drink and just a little snack before bed… again.  We walk to that heavenly place that I like to call a kitchen and get some water and Animal Crackers.  See, mommy *thinks* she has me trained.  Don’t tell her it’s the other way around okay.

Then when go back to my bedroom where she tucks me back in to bed and wraps my Egyptian cotton sheet all around me like the original piggy in a blanket.   Aaaww – that feels good.

But not only does mom wrap me up and tuck me in, she talks to me and pets me until I go back to sleep – for good this time.  Can you say contented little man?  Yep, that would be me friends.  Contentment shows in this picture.  And believe it or not, this time Mother Nature didn’t interfere.

Mommy waited until I was fast asleep and could feel my tummy going up and down in a pattern before she left my room.  In fact, I don’t remember her leaving because I was asleep dreaming.  Dreaming about my magical backyard… my friends out in the yard – Rocky the Squirrel, my Unicorn and my Bigfoot.  We were all playing and chasing each other.  Nice dream.

So have you ever had difficulties like this in getting to sleep?

    That makes absolutely sense to me, if your tank is empty you have to fill it up again :o) I had this kind of insomnia saturday night too …. bet it was the moon. btw: I like your face while flooding the wee-pad, you look totally concentrated, bet that’s the reason why they call it pee-siness :o)

      Snorts. I think you might be right brother. Mom turned the air conditioner a little lower today and I’ve been passed out every where. I can’t keep my eyes open. And thanks – I do concentrate while I whee. Mom – enough with the camera okay. XOXO – Bacon

    I never have a problem sleeping – it’s STAYING asleep that’s my problem. I fall asleep in like two seconds usually but if I’m on Mom’s lap or legs (fave spot) she wiggles or moves or sneezes and WHAMMO – I have to fall asleep all over again. You’re a lucky pig because your Mom takes SUCH good care of you, tucks you into your very own bed in your very own room. I’ve got to show this post to my Mom……ASAP!

    Hugs, Cousin Sam

      Snorticles. I am a lucky pig. There is no doubt about that in my mind. For a long time, I thought all of the piggies in the world lived like me. Daddy set me straight on that one though – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom and dada put us to bed every night. Mom sees to our pee pad and dada tucks us in and sometimes tells us a story.
    Now about those Egyptian cotton sheets…how did you get your hooves on those and where can we get some too?

      Snorts. Don’t tell mommy but I do have her wrapped around my hooves. She was doing laundry one day and took sheets out of the dryer. I grabbed this king sized Egyptian sheet and took off with it. I love that sheet! It feels so neat on my skin and it’s great for sliding on. Mom saw that I liked it so much, she let me keep it. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, you’re so diligent. When nature or revenge calls on me, I just go ahead and wet the floor to make it a little harder on everyone 😉

      Snorts. That’s one thing I’m good at. I’ve had ‘accidents’ over the years. Not too many but some. Mommy gets upset and ignores me. I hate that! XOXO – Bacon

    Back in my more squirrely days, I loved to stand about 3 feet behind the little porcelain pee container that hangs on the wall and take a wizzle without getting any of it on the floor. Sadly, these days I’d probably miss the pee pad if I were standing right on top of it like you were….

      06/23/2014 at 10:08 am

      Snorts! That mom of mine – she needs to respect my privacy! I’m so embarrassed now. Just wait for revenge my friend. It should be good. XOXO – Bacon
