I had a dream last night. In my dream, Baby E (who was sleeping beside me) rolled out of bed. He was crying and I rolled over and looked over the edge of the bed. As he laid there crying I said, “You ok, buddy?” He said, “Yes” and promptly got quiet. In my dream I thought, “ok, he’s fine,” and rolled over and went back to sleep.
At 4am I woke up and looked over, only to discover that, except for me, the bed was empty. No Baby E. So, apparently that wasn’t a dream. My kid had rolled off the bed and I had left him there! So I leaned over to check on him… only he wasn’t there! I was so confused. I sat up and looked around the room. That’s when I saw his head barely peaking out from under my bed.
Poor kid! He had not only rolled out of bed, but had managed to then roll under my bed.
So now for the dilemma. It’s 4am. My kid is asleep completely under my bed. I can’t leave him there, can I? But getting him out would definitely wake him up. What to do? In the end I figured a good nights sleep was what we all needed, so he spent the rest of the night under my bed. Around 7:30 this morning I heard a faint, “Mommy, how do I get out of here?” coming from under there. I helped wiggle him out and all was well. 🙂
This morning we packed up my sister-in-law and her family’s house to move them to their new home (35 minutes from our new house!!) Since I’m no longer working we are now officially living at our new house, though most of our stuff is still back in storage and at my in-laws house. We will make time in the next couple of weeks to make trips and bring it all over. We packed our van to the brim for the trip out today.
Since it is a Saturday, I don’t think it has really sunk in that I’m no longer working, since it just feels like a weekend. I wonder what it will feel like on Monday. I’m incredibly excited about being home and all that that means for our family, but I am also struggling with being really sad about leaving my job. I miss everyone already.
I’m so very grateful that part of our family will be so ‘close,’ and I am looking forward to settling into our new community!
