in which i don’t even mention the word insomnia

I don’t even know if I can focus right now because I’m watching Survivor and this is the nastiest challenge I have ever seen.

So, I had this really dramatic and comedic retelling of yesterday morning’s events to memorialize forever on the blog.

But I’m just not feeling dramatic and comedic.

Me. No drama? Shocker. I know.

It basically went something like this:

– bad night of sleep

– baby wakes up fussing around at 4:15ish

– I lay there waiting for baby to settle down

– the fussing around escalates

– I get up to go find the binkies that have gone overboard (can someone just invent a crib mattress with safely attached binkies, please?)

– as I’m debating whether or not to move the crib to retrieve three of the four lost binkies, I hear Baby Swiss crying at the door saying her pants are wet

– I go grab a camera, a pen and the baby book to record baby’s first bed-wetting

– or maybe I decided definitely not to move the crib and just tossed the lone found binky into the crib and suppressed the urge to laugh out loud

– I stripped wet panties and pants off the kid and tossed them into the washer before tossing her onto the potty

– then I did the hand test to assess just how much of the bedding was wet

– oh yes I did

– I was in luck, it was only the fitted sheet – God bless the inventor of the waterproof mattress pad

– I definitely stripped off only the fitted sheet, started the laundry and put my kid back to bed on top of the mattress pad

– but not before I gave her a quick wipe down with a soapy wash cloth

– because there was no way she was going to have a bath between then and when we needed to leave in the morning

– all the while she is very concerned about Elmo (who was in her bed the whole time)

– then I went back to bed and just laid there for an hour and a half not sleeping

– then I realized I had set my alarm for Sunday at 6:15 instead of just 6:15

– and I was kind of glad I hadn’t fallen back to sleep

– but only kind of

The End.

Now just imagine that I told that in a really dramatic and funny story-telling kind of way and we can stay friends.

    Yeah. We’ve been getting variations those nights a lot lately. I’ve started bribing Elizabeth with hot chocolate in the morning if she does no crying all night.

    The missing binky in the night crying is just the worst. I swear that there were nights when I put Mea to bed with 10 nuggies, and she would still wake up because she couldn’t find one. I started leaving several on my nightstand, so I wouldn’t have to search her room in the dark.

    Score on pee just on the fitted sheet. So much better than the whole bed.

    That challenge last night was sick. I can’t believe that they went back to camp and ate that. Just one more thing that proves that although I love watching Survivor, I would never be cut out for it. πŸ™‚
