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 you’re not alone!
Well, after reading Kate’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 it’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 naiveté 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 wasn’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! That’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?
