Oh, What A Night!

Last night I checked on Lucas, as I do every night before turning in myself around 9:30 and as soon as I walked into his bedroom, I smelled something awful. I had forgotten to empty the diaper pail and his laundry basket was overflowing. He was fast asleep (and breathing), so I thought if it wasn't his behind, I'd just crack open a window and call it a night.

I found his lovey at the far end of the crib and as I grabbed it and was tucking it under his arm, I discovered it was soaking wet. I then turned on the overhead light and found one whole end of the crib was soaking wet as well and there were little white chunks all over him and his bed. Poor baby had thrown up and was now sleeping in it.

Eeewwwww! I'd much rather clean up poop; at least it's usually confined to one area.

He hadn't made a peep for 3 1/2 hours. He could have choked! Thank goodness I went in there. But what was I suppose to do now? I couldn't let him sleep in soiled sheets and jammies. I had to wake him up and change everything out.

Surprisingly, he was in a very good mood considering he was just woken from a sound sleep but quickly became completely confused and very agitated. He started following me all over the house sobbing as I struggled to remove the bumper pad, dust ruffle, mattress pad, sheets and blankets from his bed, find new sheets, start laundry, pull out a fresh pair of pjs, wipe him off, change him, etc.

At one point, he made his way into our room where he quickly found the huge glass of water on my bedside table and proceeded to dump it all over himself. And so ensues another round of clean up and new jammies.

Oh, I haven't even mention the best part yet...this happens on a night my husband is out to dinner with a colleague.

In LA.

Two hours away.

Lucky me.

He got home just in time to help me try to get Lucas back to sleep, which didn't happen until after midnight.

Needless to say, I'm more than a little grouchy this morning because even though he was up for 2 1/2 hours in the middle of the night, Lucas still woke up at the butt crack of dawn this morning. What is up with that?!

We both need a break from one another.
Thank goodness I have a babysitter coming in T-minus two hours.

The best is yet to be.

HA! This reminded me of being in a very similar position with my son, sick, cleaning up, grouchy boy, every time I tried to put him back down he screamed blue murder and I ended up watching Bob the Builder until 3am so he didn't wake his sister up too... I hope you get some sleep tonight love!

I remember nights like that! The joys of motherhood :)

Ugh! I suppose you should be thankful that it happened before you went to bed rather than at 3 am. I've had success changing sheets from leaked diapers without a wakeup before. Not really something you want to practice.

I think we've all been there. I remember those before too. I'm not sure that will make you feel any less cranky today, but thought you should know you are definitely not alone. You're a good mama.

Husbands always find opportune times to be "away" don't they?

I bet you'll get an extra long nap this afternoon. Good luck momma!

I'm so happy he's ok. I'm sure that was definitely stinky. Throw up smell makes me throw up.

I always felt like one of the biggest "mom" moments came the first time the cutie pie threw up in the crib! The smell, having to take everything off...been there, remember it well.

And yes, it always seems to happen when hubby is gone! Good luck today, hope you drink coffee!

Same here! It's happened to both kiddies and more than once!!! I hate the smell and how frightened I get when I check on them and that they are sleeping in the middle the throw up mess : (

And you're right, husbands always seem to be away on nights like those ones!!!

Luckily enough though, my daughters went back to sleep quite quickly, unless they were being sick all night, which also happens.

Good luck Mama! You're doing really good!

I hope you have a stock of Diet coke in your fridge : )

Sending lots of love your way. Big hugs to Lucas xoxox

Oh my gosh Tonya! That is horrible! Poor little guy!
You couldn't hear him throwing up on the monitor? How frightening! I would look into a video one.
I hope he feels better and you all have a better night tonight!

Wow! What a night?! I can't believe he threw up and then proceeded to sleep in it...That's crazy! You would think he would cry about it.. right? Do you know why he threw up? Has he been doing that a lot lately? Yeah, maybe it's time you guys figured out how that monitor thing can work better. Might be smart just to have it hooked up from now on just in case. Well, I hope he has been sleeping better since this bad night! And Todd was out of town too! Geez!! : (
