This Morning

Two things happened for the first time this morning.

First the good. Jason started working 7a-4p this week. {Zach & I were home yesterday because he ran a fever Sunday. Getting teeth two at a time is hard work.} So today was our Monday & also the first time the babies & I had gotten ready & headed to work & daycare with me as solo morning parent. It was a success! All of us were clean {& thanks to Zach’s last minute poop as we went out the door, he & I were wiped very clean}, dressed, lunches, diaper & pump bags packed & I was only 5 mintues late to work. Score!

The not so great. Zach slept in our king size bed between us from 1a on this morning. We nursed around 5 & fell back asleep. Jason’s alarm went off & he got up around 530a. I stretched out a little after that & noticed Jason had turned his pillow vertical just in case Z wiggling all the way across the bed. Zach was nestled snugly sleeping horizontal with his feet on my back & me facing Lucy’s monitor & away from the other side of the bed.

Next thing I know, I’m hearing a thud & then a cry. I sat right up, reached out & nothing was there. I was missing 15 pounds of lil guy from the bed. I found him between Jason’s end table & the bed. Yep, Zach wiggled& wiggled & wiggled himself right off the bed & onto the floor.

I quickly scooped him up & while giving hugs & kisses happily discovered he wasn’t hurt, jsut scared & mostly asleep. We laid back down but since he continued crying, we walked into the den where I had to tell his Daddy about his fall!

Since this morning, Jason’s been researching bed rails. There’s a trip to Walmart in my future this evening. 😛

Anyone else have experience with this? Are we the only bedsharing family that this has happened to?

    It hasn’t happened to us while bed-sharing but once when we were at a hotel. Brooke was in one double bed and us in another. We thought we’d framed her in with pillows really well. Apparently we hadn’t because in the middle of the night we also heard a thud and then a wail.

    I’m willing to bet its happened to lots of people at some point!

      In talking with my coworkers, it sounds like it’s happened to them in similar situations! Zach’s actually done really well the rest of this week ~ nursing then going back down in his own crib!
