Looking at the situation objectively, I can only say that it was bound to happen eventually. Doesn't make it any better, though.
When I get home in the mornings, Soren's usually hungry for some breakfast, so I pull him out of his crib and settle him in the bed beside me to nurse. Then we doze for a few (or, if he's feeling generous, several!) hours. Eventually he starts wiggling around and talking to himself, and I wake up, and we start our day. And since he's started becoming more proficient with the rolling over, I am usually very good about setting up a protective pillow barricade if I keep him in the bed with me instead of transferring him back to the crib after he's eaten.
You can probably see where this is going.
This morning I fell asleep without (a) putting him back in the crib or (b) blocking the edge of the bed with pillows. I was jolted awake some 3.5 hours later to a thump and immediate wailing. Jesus. The only thing that would have been worse is if he'd fallen off the other side of the bed and landed on the bottle warmer or (god forbid) the nightstand, and holy shit I don't even want to think about that possibility. And because he wiggled off while still asleep, it took several minutes to get him to wake up all the way and even be anywhere close to consolable. It was horrible.
Ultimately of course he's fine. No worse for the wear, no injuries, was his usual happy smiley self again within 10 or 15 minutes. Babies are resilient, I know. Doesn't make me feel any less guilty.
Less than 2 minutes after I'd finally gotten him comforted and settled, there was a knock at the door. It actually crossed my mind that someone might have heard all the crying and come to investigate, which is what made me actually go answer the door instead of reverting to the default assumption (mailman). It was not the mailman. It was the frigging FBI. (Well, not the whole bureau...) Specifically, it was the agent working on Tom's background investigation, asking which apartment belonged to the building manager. If he had heard Sir's lamentations he made no indication, so hopefully CPS won't be the next ones to come knocking.
How was your morning?
