This post. The one where I bid my baby goodbye. And all that bittersweet mumbo jumbo…
Apparently, I spoke too soon.
I shoulda known!
The minute I opened my mouth. The minute I did a little brag post. The minute I said farewell to having some little body smack dab on top of mine…all night long…
Would be the minute THAT child got sick (NO…not swine flu)…
And he would start crying for me again.
And I’d have to do the midnight shuffle, smashing toes and elbows.
And would be back in bed with me.
Having bad dreams and sitting straight up in bed.
Wiping snot on my shoulder.
And on my pillow.
Snoring loudly because of a stuffy nose.
Flipping and flopping around, all over the bed.
Breathing his congestion breath in my face.
Dragging my left arm around with him, because he can’t seem to let the lovey go
I probably should have just kept my big mouth shut.
Oh you poor thing! That is so hard. I can’t wait to get a full night sleep and I finally do, I’ll be like you up with a sick kiddo..
Get better soon young prince….
it’s just a temporary set back…you will get him back on track as soon as he is well…but of course then YOU will be sick…so once YOU are well, you will get him RIGHT BACK on track.

I am feeling your pain right now – Little Miss Lauren has been in my bed for an entire month now! She started out when she got sick at the beginning of April and (because she hasn’t been well for more than a few days at a time since) hasn’t left. She’s fine now and since Daddy goes to the couch when Lauren sleeps with me he has decreed last night was her last night in our room…. Yeah, like that’s going to happen… obviously he’s forgotten how stubborn his child can actually be. I’m just aiming for by the time school is out for the year!
Good Luck – doesn’t it always seem like just when things are looking brighter something happens.

Arg, it’s hit here too and suddenly I’m co-sleeping with my almost nine year old.
