The other night while I was sound asleep, sometime in between the every-two-hour wake ups from my teething boy, I was having a bad dream. It involved characters from two of my guilty pleasures, the t.v. show “Revenge” and the book “Fifty Shades of Grey” (yes, I jumped on that bandwagon and am so happy I did!) There was nothing hot or sexy about the dream though, it was just your average billionaire death match and some how I was caught in the middle.
So, there I was, hiding out in a dressing room of a posh store from a gun man. Then, all of a sudden I was startled awake. My husband was sitting up in bed, leaning over me and saying, “He’s standing up.” I just laid there for a minute trying to figure out what was going on. First I thought, is he having some sort of psychic connection to someone who is standing up? And then I thought, is my three year old in our room standing next to the bed? I love the kid but if he was standing silently by our bed in the middle of the night I would be a little creeped out!
I mustered up the strength to find my voice and said, “Huh?” and once again he says, “He’s standing up.”
Then, things started to get a little less cloudy. I realized that he was sitting up and leaning over me to look at the video monitor, the baby was standing up in his crib. I had to laugh at myself, I was so out of it! It’s amazing what lack of sleep does to you.
Do you have any funny stories that happened as a result of being up with your baby?
