Fail

Stephen sleeps in our bed, because he won't sleep in the crib and was getting up too frequently for me to have any desire to fight with it. I can't sleep beside him, because he senses I'm there, and wants to snack constantly all night, so Jason sleeps with him in our bed, and I sleep with Alex in her bed.

Last night, Stephen was absolutely beside himself if I wasn't there when he woke up, so we switched, and Jason slept with Alex while I slept with Stephen. I woke up early this morning for some unknown reason, and came on the computer to putz around, and get some "me" time before the family got up. I heard Stephen wake up and could tell he was happy and playing, but it didn't register that he wasn't penned in, and would probably roll off the bed.

It wasn't until I heard the "thump... *wail*" that I realized I should have gotten him off the bed a long time ago. He was there playing for quite a while. He now has this lovely bruise just above his eye.

Go mommy.

If that's the worst thing that's happened then you're way ahead of the rest of us.

For him that's the worst thing that's happened... so far! Alex is racking up a spectacular list of could-have-been-horrible-but-weren't injuries (involving parental absent-mindedness)

I missed catching Alex when she was learning to crawl down the stairs. Fortunately she didn't have many stairs to fall down :/

Welcome to the eternal guilt that comes with motherhood.
Remember he'll only be able to throw this story back at you when he's older if you tell him about it. ;)

And this is why we now look as if we are college students with a mattress on the floor for our bed. :/
