Usually I answer, "Sure...and everyday it changes!"
Yes kids, 10 years from now when you're reading this...I do have a favorite! And somedays...it's you!
Let's take today, for example...it was an EASY CHOICE! Today's winner: Eli. And not just because he was pathetic last night and cuddled with me while we watched the end of the Cardinals/Packers game (which was a great game, by the way.)
It's really just a process of elimination:
- Ava...had me up 5 times last night between 1-2:30am and even ended up sleeping on my chest by 4am.
- Cole...even though he gave me a run for my money at bedtime last night, he was still eligible for favorship until he started growling at 5a this morning.
- Zoe...she lost eligibility when she climbed in my bed last night around 1:30 and forced Shane to take over 50% of my sleeping space. Even when I put her in the sleeping bag on the floor at 2:30, she still managed to somehow return to my bed by 4a. So this morning, when she woke up with a scowl on her face bossing everyone around and griping about everything, those didn't count against her, since, she really didn't stand a chance today anyway.
- Then there's Ty...he was co-favorite with Eli until about 7:30a this morning when he stopped listening and started moving in reverse. It was probably the fact that he let Cole dump out his tylenol cold all over the table and chairs 10 minutes after I'd handed the medicine to Ty and said "take this now so the babies don't reach it". (You should know...the triplets LOVE medicine. If I give tylenol to one, I have to have "fake" medicine to give the other two or there are MAJOR meltdowns.)
So Eli wins! He slept through the night. Woke up with a smile on his face. Didn't pitch a fit that he didn't want all of his breakfast. Didn't throw any breakfast on the floor. Let me change his diaper the first time I asked. Gave me hugs. So...as of 9a this morning, Eli's my favorite!
