Hello 2 A.M.


Captain’s Log.  Daddy Chronicles.  Diaper Date 1669.  Happy Easter…An Original Parody of The Sound of Silence – Captain Style..

Hello, nightime my old friend,

It’s 2 a.m. and we’re awake again. 

Because The Diaper Dweller is not asleeping. 

Left his crib while I was sleeping

And the slumber party that was planned for this night

Is out of sight

Replaced with the sound of playing

In restless cries I rocked alone

A littered living room of legos I roam

Neath the halo of tv light
My ears were pierced by screams of movie fright

That split the night

And encouraged the sound of playing.

And in that muted tv light I saw

Ten thousand legos and maybe more

My son was rocking without a sleeping

He was laughing without any yawning

He threw legos around without a single care

Clean? I wouldn’t dare.

It would disturb the sound of playing.

That’s all I’ve got for 2 a.m….sorry. 

Captain Out…

  1. I am so sorry. Those 2 a.m. mornings are no fun. The only bonus is that you get to spend some quiet, alone time with your precious little one. It’s probably be as special if this alone time took place during the day, too :-/ Hope you got some rest!

  2. Guilty! I feel guilty that I slept last night with two softly snoring dogs and a non-snoring husband while you played at 2:00 a.m. with your now walking son! Guilty! (Okay, maybe not really!)
