Another Anna Moment

Okay, so scratch everything I said in my last post...

It never fails, every time I hold my ground something inevitably happens to lay on the guilt.

This morning at 6:30 am I heard the squeak of the door knob on Anna and Ethan's door telling me that Ethan was awake.  Had to be Ethan right?  Well of course since Anna was in her "teddy bear bed".

Ethan came in the room and I asked him about Anna and he said she was still asleep.  At that moment Anna started crying.  So i ran in there since she in a pack n' play and I knew she would be very upset about being trapped.  Well, I walked in and she had thrown up all over her pillow and herself.  She was an absolute mess!

Not to get too graphic, since it really is a rather gross topic, but her was covered in it and it was all dry...which means it had happened at some point in the night.  Ugh, she slept in that disgusting mess.  There room is right next door I am sure I would have heard her crying ... but having one of those "bad mommy" moments.  If she was in her regular bed would she have woken up and come in and got me?

I really hat when this happens.  I always feel so empowered when I've done the right thing teaching my children right from wrong and what they can't get away with and then whammo, the rug is pulled out from under me.

Well, the good news is I am a stay at home / work at home and everything else at home mom.  :-)  At least I was able to just be with her and care for her and hold her all day.  Thankfully she didn't get sick anymore (oh except when she had a fit about not being able to have orange juice) - she's even spunky when sick!  Hopefully she will be back to herself tomorrow after a really goodnight sleep in her "big girl bed".

The pack n' play is put away...
