And I don’t mean me….not today at least!!!
Laura @ Melodramommy! She writes letters to Mr. Poopie–this one almost made me pee my pants when I read it (Hubs thought I was insane because I was having hysteric fits at my computer.) She warns us all about Mommy Casualties. What Laura does best is capture the humor in motherhood & makes you proud to be a mama. So please give a round of applause to her & welcome her to Mommy Monologues!
First I want to say I am honored to be guest posting today for Kate, who is a very special mommy blogging friend of mine. Kate is just one of those sincere, kind, people you can instantly connect with and relate to; not to mention that she has quite a talent for telling a good story about her mommy adventures all while lifting your spirit, making you laugh, cry, and know youâ€™re not alone!
Well, after reading Kateâ€™s post on her sleep challenges with Wolverine, I began realizing our cute little babies have been conspiring against us! I know, I know, how could that buttery-soft-melt-in-your-arms, little person who whispers that sweet little coo-coo-ka-choo in your ears possibly be involved in a conspiracy? The answer is simple, Mommy friends! Babies have some sleep fantasies of their own, and itâ€™s time to expose them!
This epiphany actually struck me while I was on vacation at the beach, where I was forced to have baby sleep in my own bed. In my complete naivetÃ© I actually thought this would be a sweet and snuggly experience. Big mistake!
All through a darkened night I dodged kicks from a 1YO who apparently was dreaming he was an acrobat and Mommy the trapeze. When he wasnâ€™t swirling around the covers and flipping from head to toe, he was hacking a cough straight into my face. In my complete deliriousness, I thought it was delightful! Thatâ€™s because I was simultaneously dreaming I was in the ocean being rocked by waves and tasting the salty ocean spray. You can imagine my horrified eyes when, after a jab in my ribs, I opened them to discover the droplets on my lips were NOT a welcomed kiss of ocean dew!
So what are our not-so-innocent babies dreaming about that keep us up all night long?
