Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep...

Dave has issues with alarms to wake him up in the morning--the problem is that he usually DOESN'T wake up to the alarm right away, it takes a while. And he's a big fan of the snooze button.

It used to drive me crazy when on the weekends he'd forget to turn off the pre-programmed alarm on his cell phone. He usually had two alarms--a get-up alarm (6:30am) and a you'd-better-be-at-work-already alarm (8am--who sets an alarm for that?!). Back before we had Eddie even that 8am alarm drove me nuts on a Saturday morning. I'd kick him until he turned it off.

Last year when my water broke at 3:30am and Dave was up in Gualala, I had to call him twice on his cell phone before he woke up and answered it. When I finally got him on the phone he told me it was a good thing the phone was across the room so he had to walk over to get it, because if it had been next to him he would have just silenced the phone, assuming it was an alarm. Greeeeeeat.

On Sunday Dave cleared his old cell phone of all the stored numbers, charged it, and then gave it to Eddie as a toy. It was cute seeing Eddie walk around the house chatting to himself while he pushed all the buttons on this phone.

Come Monday morning my own cell phone alarm went off at 6:30am so I could get ready before Eddie woke up around 7am. I hit the snooze button once but I could still hear the alarm (pretty faint, but still). What the heck? I must be imagining things. But I could hear it every 5 minutes for about a half hour while I was getting ready. And this morning I had my alarm set for 6:45am instead and the faint alarm sound woke me up early. This time I realized where the sound was coming from: Eddie's room. I was hearing it on the baby monitor! (Luckily Eddie didn't wake up to the sound.)

After I got Eddie up this morning I looked everywhere in his room, but I can't find the dang cell phone to shut off the alarm. I was ticked off, so I texted Dave:

Me: I think you left the f'ing alarm activated on that old phone you gave to Eddie this goes off at 6:30 and I can hear it on the monitor. He doesn't wake up to it, thank god. SERIOUSLY DAVID BOWER????? You and your F'ING ALARMS!

Dave: Hahahahahahaha. I suppose there was an alarm set on that thing. I know that just makes you love me more! I'm glad it didn't wake him up. He must be just like me!

Me: It ISN'T are lucky you are so handsome...........
