While You Were Sleeping

While you were sleeping, I was cleaning up barf at three in the morning.

PB has been teething like the business lately, and last night she decided that the moment I got up to use the bathroom was also the perfect moment to vom all over me and our beautiful new bed.

Because timing is everything to a baby.

I Was Cleaning Up Barf At Three In The Morning 1

HBL got the baby cleaned off while I changed the sheets out. Poor Monkey woke up from all the commotion and asked, “What’s going on? Are we going to a party?” If only, sweet face. If only.

By the time HBL and the baby were back in pj’s, Monkey was asleep, everything was in the laundry and I was cleaned off. But sweating like I just finished a game of tennis. On another note, it’s amazing how much can really get done in an hour when you are focused.

And there is no point to this post except for the fact that I am still tired and also impressed that I was not the least bit annoyed with cleaning up vom that early in the morning. You guys, some how I have learned to roll with them parenting punches.


  1. Ohhhh man, middle of the night vomit attacks are the wooooorst. And it always seems to come when you have fresh, clean sheets!

  2. Super proud of you for all the rolling with all the punches. I haven't caught on to that just yet. Just reading about YOUR kid puking made we want to whine:)

  3. It's because of that bad day last week! They did it on purpose so that the vom would slip by without an issue!

  4. This post is the best birth control ever.

  5. I had to giggle at your comment about how much you can do when you're focused…especially, at that hour! Parenthood is the best way to learn patience I have found.
