Fable of the Dentist and the Cookie Monster

The Talker was awake at 3 am. And since he was screaming, we were all awake at 3:01 am. Usually, when he wakes up in the night, he wants a drink and they he gets back to sleep quickly. .

But last night he was obviously dreaming. Because all he would say is "NO Mommy, don't go to the Dentist." So she didn't and I got him a drink. Then I spilled the water all over the kitchen. So I got him another drink.

Of course, The Princess was awake by this time, too. She did not want to miss out on the fun. The Boss Lady got her back to sleep, while I cleaned the kitchen.

And they slept happily ever after. Until 6:43 am. Except The Boss Lady, she snuck out, under the cover of darkness, at 6:03 am, because she was stealing all of the cookies.

Then, The Boss Lady was banished from the AtHomeFamily Kingdom, because AtHomeDaddy found out that she stole ALL of the cookies, to take to an office party, eventhough AtHomeDaddy had made her a batch to take to the office and a batch for the king's breakfast.

So they lived grumpily ever after, for they had no cookies. The Royal Dentist was lonely, because no one came to visit him. And The Boss Lady was hungry since her royal cook went on strike for a few weeks.
