Bike, Daddy

Eryn has been having a little trouble sleeping lately, and wakes up around 3:00 a.m. and yells, hoping that someone, anyone, will let her out of her crib to play, watch t.v., rock in the rocking chair, dance, anything that doesn't involve sleeping. Two nights ago I went in to calm her down and she was standing up, stating between sobs, "Daddy.... down... down... now... Daddy... bike... down.... bike..."

21 months old, and she wants to go bicycling at 3:00 a.m. It just warms my heart. Perhaps it's all the bicycling I'm doing on the trainer beneath her room after she's asleep that's getting through to her.

For anyone who's interested, the 2005 Ironman is April 24th! Mark your calendar.

She needs a brother to yell for! Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Scotty Scotty Scotty! So why do you not take her biking at 3 am at -20. You or she would learn quick to curtail biking in the northern regions. I have no problem with biking and riding motorcycle at those hours with fairly decent temperatures. Maybe you could request the presence of a new cousin shortly to keep her comapny!
