My babies are older now. It’s been a good four year since we have had a little bitty baby in the house. Some days I miss that. Mine are 5 and 8 now.
Some nights I lay awake day dreaming about how I wish they were still little enough to snuggle with at night. Little warm and lavender smelling heaters to keep you warm and cozy all night. I would long for a night they would ask to sleep with us because they were afraid of a shadow on the wall of some sort.
It just doesn’t really happen here.
In those day dreams this is exactly what I had envisioned……
See isn’t this so sweet!!? Momma Cat is snuggling baby cat keeping her little safe and sound. Awe… No more bad dreams baby, Mommy is here!
Can I just interrupt this mushy moment with a little dose of reality!?
Well it finally happened last night! Our 5 year old daughter came bolting in our room tears and all with that sweet little innocent voice: “Daddy I want you!”
“Okay get in the middle of us!”
That warm sweet lavender scented soft baby has vanished leaving me with a sleepy, whiney, very boney, sweaty ball of a mess child! She didn’t smell so sweet, or lovely for that matter! More like Chicken Nuggets and Cheetos, laced with smelly feet!
I can’t recall much but if I could paint you a picture I am pretty sure my night looked a lot like these pictures to follow..
We started the night out in my favorite sleeping position. Momma on her back! Now imagine a life size 5 year old on my tummy, and I am not quiet that wide! 🙂
That position left me winded and uncomfortable so I rolled over onto my side. This is where her sweaty hair was suffocating me!
I manage to push her off my face and try this half side, half stomach position.
I suspect we got away with this co-sleeping position for a good portion of the night. Well, until my shoulder started to hurt and my side began to ache!
I decided it was time to give the whole tummy position a run for it’s money! After all it’s probably close to 2 in the morning and I am beginning to feel severely UNCOMFORTABLE!
Oh brother.. I am going Apes, Bananas!!
Why can’t she roll over and sleep next to her DADDY!? It was HE WHO LET THE LITTLE DARLING INTO OUR BED! Why ME, Why ME!? Why am I the only one being pressed down on, kicked, slapped, elbowed, kneed, sweated, and slobbered on!!!!??
She is Child by day, Ninja Warrior by night!
HELP! I can’t even breath at this point!
And She has the nerve to wake up looking like this!
“Good Morning Momma!”
I am all like, “Good morning Kenna!”
My body feels like I just fought off a bull in my sleep all night!
NEVER AGAIN! NEVER!!!!! My back hurts, my arms hurt, my neck is stiff, I am sore all over!
So thank you DADDY and thank you POPPA for letting her watch that Scary Movie. I think if she comes back again, I am moving to the couch!
🙂 The countless joys of Motherhood!
Here is an actually picture of proof just how crazy our night was last night!!!
