No eating or drinking after 3am
He had to have a clean, oil-free scalp
No alcohol or cigarettes (haha)
Oh and he had to be sleep deprived...meaning he could only sleep between the hours of midnight and 3am. (record scratching). Say what?? We had to keep him up until midnight (his normal bedtime is between 7 and 7:30) and then wake him back up at 3 and keep him up until his check-in at 7:30. From there he would be sedated so they could put the tentacles on his scalp without him throwing a hissy. You know, since he would be sleep-deprived.
So to give you an idea of what our Valentines consisted of, here is a post in pictures of what your child may look like if you have to have them be sleep-deprived.
|8 PM: Oh this one isn't too bad. Some nights I stay up this late because my mom hopes I will sleep in the next morning!|
|9PM: I'm still in a pretty playful mood. Dad and I are having a ball!|
|10PM: I'm starting to get tired but dad is being a good sport by watching Mickey Mouse and Doc McStuffins with me. Thank goodness for OnDemand!|
|11PM: Guys...I'm tired. Please just let me go to bed. I will even sleep on the floor. I DON'T CARE!|
|12 AM: Aw sweet relief. (Little does he know...it is short lived)|
|3AM: Are you freaking kidding me? You wake me up and then take my picture? You suck. (I don't know where he learned his saucy language)|
|4am-go time (7am): I HATE YOU! This is pretty much what those hours looked like. No fun.|
|7:30AM: I'm pretending that I'm having fun but really I just want to get out of here. Please let me out!|
|8:30 AM: What did this lady just do to my head. I'm pretty sure I would get yelled at if I drew on my head.|
|8:45AM: They let me have a bottle and I was lights out. Sounds like my mom on a Saturday night (ba da bah...that was my best drum-roll)|
