Eye Contact

The Hubby's alarm goes off at about 0440 every morning. As loud as it is, I rarely hear it go off. Most of the time, I'm not even aware that The Hubby is up and about until he kisses me goodbye. I do know that The Hubby struggles to get Bella outside to go to the bathroom every now and then because I'll hear him calling for her several times.

Hubby: Bella has been taking her sweet little time coming to the back door lately.
Me: Well you spend a lot of time in the kitchen anyway. Can't you just wait for her?
Hubby: Yeah, but I have to keep watching for her because if I don't make eye contact with her right away she'll just turn around and go back to the bedroom to sleep.

What a character!
