Bedtime at the Hotel Thompson is really a good time for me. You’re probably thinking, “What is that pig talking about now?” You see, I’m a kid at heart but when it comes to bedtime mommy makes it fun. Therefore, I don’t mind going to bed. Does that make sense now to you? No? Okay, here’s the scoop.
When mommy tells me it’s bedtime and to go get ready for bed, I usually jump off of the sofa where I’ve been sitting with her and stumble down the hall to my bedroom. I do my business on my wizzy pad, yawn a couple of times and jump in bed. Then mom comes in, tucks me in and reads me a story until I fall asleep. See picture to the left – that’s me all smiling from my bedtime story. And yes, that’s my favorite king size Egyptian cotton sheet. I ❤ that sheet!
Then after I’m asleep, sometimes mom goes into the connecting room to my bedroom. She turns on her little pink light and keeps the door open so she can see me. And yes I said pink light – snorts. She likes the ‘lightness’ of the lamp and you know the full light would wake this little oinker. Then she starts her writing. Now, when she does this you would think that it would wake me up but it doesn’t. It’s kind of like when humans fall asleep with the fan on in their bedroom. It’s what they call ‘white noise’ and helps you sleep. And if mom is working up a storm, the tap-tap-tap of the keyboard is like this ‘white noise’ to me. It kind of comforts me. For you to experience it this ‘white noise’, I had mom record it for you. Tell me what you think. Is it comforting to you?

I just go to sleep under the coffee table till bedtime and then I get the hump if the light is not turned off. Bedtime for me is for everyone. My pad my rules……LOL. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Snorts – I like the way you think sweet Molly. I wonder why mommy makes me go to bed before her and dad. I need to discuss that with her tonight. Thanks! XOXO – Bacon

It#s great to hear the tap-tap-tap, that means your human is still there and you aren’t alone. butt sometimes I dislike that noise, it means that she has no time to play football with me :o)
08/15/2014 at 2:28 pm
That is true. She only goes tap-tap-tap after she puts me to bed though. That’s comforting. And I’ll tell you a secret brother. Sometimes, I’ll sneak in her office and she will let me sleep under her desk at her feet. XOXO – Bacon

Sounds like a good way to go to sleep to me Bacon.

Snorts – thanks my sweet snugglebug. Mom has been typing since she was five pecking away at an old timey typewriter! I think it’s second nature to her by now. You should see her keyboard. All of the letters have been rubbed off. XOXO – Bacon

At least you don’t have to brush your teeth before bed. Mom brushes her teeth. yuck..I like your routine. That white noise is great…mom says she is so tired at the end of the day after dealing with me, that she just wants to sleep until I wake her to play at 4am.
08/15/2014 at 3:40 pm
Snorts. You are so thoughtful to wake your mommy up at “4:00AM” to play. I might try that tomorrow morning with mine to see how she likes it. What do you think? Do I have a shot to play with mom at that time? XOXO – Bacon

You and your mommy have a lovely routine! It must be really comforting to hear her type away and know that she’s near… 🙂 Sweet dreams, dear little Bacon! It’s nearly bedtime over here… (for the humans). Time for us to wake up and make some noise, hehehe… 🙂 xx Roxy & Tigerlino ❤

Snorts – you nighttime party anipals! Sweet dreams to ya’ll my friends… imagine mommy typing away in the back ground 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

Crikey Bacon …… you sure got it made, mate!! You really got Egyptian cotton sheets?? I think you’re a tad spoilt but then you deserve to be, aye? I like a bit of background noise my self when I go to bed but Dad’s snoring is a bit off!!
08/16/2014 at 9:31 am
Snorts. Yep. That’s my very own sheet. I am just a teeny weeny bit privileged. That is so very true. I can’t say much about dads snoring. I kind of do the same. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

It sounds very comforting Bacon but the main thing is, you know she is near.
08/16/2014 at 9:28 am
Yep. That is so very true Auntie Sharon. XOXO – Bacon

Sounds totally comfy to me…….in the early morning Mom and I go to her room and while she does email and blog stuff I’m in my tent snoozing away and Mom thinks the “white noise” of her clickity clacking on the keyboard makes me sleep. I just like to be close to her like you like to be close to your Mom!!
08/16/2014 at 9:25 am
There you go cousin – that’s exactly it! We have to be close. I like to be in eye range of mom while she works. XOXO – Bacon

You are the luckiest fellow in the world…. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
08/16/2014 at 6:52 pm
Aaww. Thank you my friend. I think I am too. Piggy blushes. XOXO – Bacon
08/17/2014 at 3:40 pm
Ahh Bacon, I am with you, though I appreciate definitely being in the minority. I love the clickity click of a keyboard and have been known to abandon some because they aren’t loud enough!! So I totally get how you can sleep through this!
My own white noise is a fan though, that’s the only part I dislike about winter coming… I have to turn off my fan! Boo
Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

Thank you my sweet friend. The tap tap tap of the keyboard is definitely calming to me. It makes things feel normal and I’m all about normal. My mom feels the same about the fan though. She loves it. XOXO – Bacon

Sounds like a fab little routine! Typist is now tying her little heart out to see if she can keep up with your mum!!
08/18/2014 at 9:37 am
Snorts! Mom gets going really hard when she’s on a roll. You should hear her at the worky place. 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
