Last night I poured half a glass of ice cold water on my mostly-asleep-but-nursing Sprout during his midnight snack.
Ice cold water.
The screaming... the screaming..

The situation was frantic. Screaming, wet, cold, flailing baby who's just been cruelty jolted out of his dreamy state. Soaked bed. Glass of water that is not yet empty. Mama with one helluva cold boob. And a very confused husband who managed to not see what happened..

I suck.
That is all.


  1. You definitely don't suck. If I sucked for every time I'd dropped a glass of water, I'd be like one of those fish with the O-shaped mouths who eat algae. And I'm pretty sure I'm not one of those (yet).

    How long did it take him to sleep again?

  2. Laurel, not long at all. There is great parenting power within the boob. All women should learn how to harness and use it. Once I had grabbed towels and fixed the bed, he was back asleep in minutes.

    And hoooooray!!!! I was really hoping to win that.. :)
