Son #2 had a little cold but had finally fallen into a peaceful sleep in his basinette. Sadly, his basinette was in the office and it was past my bedtime. How do you get a sleeping baby in a basinette from the office to the master bedroom without waking the baby? I had a plan.
After unlocking the wheels of the basinette, I carefully rolled baby and basinette through the doorway. Slowly, I made my way down the hallway and into the living room. I had bumped the basinette twice on my journey so far but fortunately Son #2 only stirred. Carefully, I inched to the master bedroom. Success! Son #2 was still asleep. I turned on a tiny lamp and heard a whimper. Noooooo!
I did everything in my power to soothe him back to sleep without picking him up but he would have none of it. Finally, I picked him up, changed his diaper, fed him, and rejoiced when he settled into sleep again. I crawled into bed beside my husband and we fell fast asleep. (Sleep...sweet sleep)
Thirty minutes later, we were awakened by our precious baby sneezing, coughing, and then a noise that sounded to us like a gasp for air. We leaped from the bed to the basinette and whisked Son #2 to our bed to sleep. Son #2 giggled. In his head, we could hear him say "That was easy. I win again."
In the battle to sleep between Mama and Dada instead of the basinette the score is:
Son #2: 1 point
