C'mon Little Dickie!

I'm not sure if I have ever outed the FD on my blog but ... he does crazy things in his sleep. Mostly, he talks. A lot. Of course, he's no rival to the Sleeping Talking Man, but he says and does his share of amusing things in the wee hours of the night.

His latest nocturnal interlude occurred about a week ago and I have not been able to let it go. I am still chuckling each and every time I think about our conversation so I knew that it must be forever documented on that which is blogger.

I was sleeping peacefully when I found myself being poked in the back by my *giggling* husband. And, yes, when I say giggling, I mean a high pitched, hehehe, girl-y girl giggle. I rolled over to see what exactly it was that he was doing when the following conversation took place...

FD: "C'mon ya Little Dickie! You just gotta pick a spot and snip it off!"

Me: "Um, WHAT?" [At this point, I'm pretty certain he must be dreaming of circumcision or something].

FD: "I'm talking about vinyl siding, okay?"

Me: "Um, okay."

FD: [More girly giggling] "He he he. Little Dickie."

At this point, he continued the giggle fest and began to cuddle me and nuzzle my neck.

Now, he was working on a siding job last week, so I asked him in the morning if he remembered the conversation. Of course, he did not. And then I asked him if saying "C'mon Ya Little Dickie. You just gotta pick a spot and snip it off" would have anything to do with the job he was working at. Of course, it does not.

While the Dude's sleep talking brings me a great deal of laughter, I am slightly concerned as to what might take place when we have a newborn and are both dealing with sleep deprivation. His sleep talking, walking, and craziness tends to be amplified when he is stressed, busy and exhausted.

I have heard many stories of husbands who have done and said crazy things when they have newborns such as my BIL who used to attempt to swaddle anything and everything he could get his hands on at night - including their pillows and my sister.

I'm somewhat afraid that the Dude might, you know, attempt to put our child out into the chicken coop, or take him/her for a ride in the boat or something like that. Perhaps I should consider getting a security alarm bracelet to put on the baby just in case my Little Dickie does anything crazy.

That's hilarious! My husband is a sleep talker too. And he still sleep fights with his brother (he hasn't lived with his brother in 10 years!). He's actually a little frightening in his sleep... Our first night together, I got up to pee around 3am and he sat up and growled at me saying "Get. Back. In. Bed."

...I did. He had no recollection of it in the morning and since then, I've learned to tell his sleeping self to bite me :o)

HA! My husband talks in his sleep quite often. Usually when he is stressed out. For example, he swore in his sleep right after we found out we were pregnant. lol

Oh my goodness! How hilarious. My hubby yells at co-workers in his sleep. Scares the crap out of me! The alarm may be a good idea LOL.

I am laughing out loud because B said a TON of funny things in his half-awake, half-asleep state last night (and he never does that) and then took a shower at 2 am.

Haha, oh gosh, Little Dickie. That's so funny. :) But here's to hoping you don't find your baby in the chicken coop though!

My hubby talks in his sleep too but mostly it's mumbeling. I always laugh when he does it though.
