The sleepover

So, last night was awful.  Thanks for asking.

At 4:00ish, Gibson woke up shrieking.  He's been coughing a lot, and his molars are bothering him...poor kid.

So Danny gave him milk and put him back down.  And he kept crying, and then fell asleep.  Kind of.

At 5:00 he was screaming again, so I went into his room armed with a pillow and ibuprofen.  I was determined to get him to sleep, even if it meant laying next to the bed...this kid is SO GRUMPY when he doesn't sleep.

It turns out that laying next to the bed wasn't cutting it.  So Gibson ended up laying on me as if I were a bed while I rubbed his back.  And he fell asleep, and it was very sweet.

And then my hips started to say, "ERIN!  Stop laying on your back!  We're in PAIN!"  So I rolled over to my side and we snuggled that way.

At some point I moved him to the floor next to me, and that's when I realized how cold it was.  SO COLD.  I didn't really need a blanket when I had a 25-pound ball of heat slung across my body.

...it doesn't help that I wasn't wearing pants.  Because pants are for losers.

Being the genius I am, I removed the pillowcase from my pillow and put my legs inside of it to stay warm.  I would definitely survive on a deserted island with those smarts, right?

At some point I was still freezing, so I put a stuffed cow on my arms.  It didn't help.  So I snuck out of his room and back into my very comfy bed...which felt amazing.  AMAZING.

Luckily, my sweet husband got up with Gibson and let me sleep until TEN O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING.  He's the best.  Do you even know the last time I slept past 7:30?

...neither do I.  It was the best.

I'm glad I got some snuggles in with my boy, but I wish it hadn't been at 5:00 in the morning.  But that's okay...I'll take what I can get!
