It was about 5-ish (in the morning) Will woke up screaming, I heard him, but gave him a few minutes to go back to sleep. He didn't. Sigh. I got up to retrieve (usually at the veeeery back corner under his crib by the wall) his binky and give it back, hoping that is all it would take. It wasn't. I retrieved the binky (exactly where I thought it would be) and gently laid him back down, he was soaking wet. I immediately regretted my decision the night before when I did the "feel" test and had determined that his diaper (pretty newly changed) was fine enough for the night. It wasn't. Sigh. I changed him and got him all warm and cozy (which made me feel happy) stuck in the bink and tip-toed away. Whew. 2 minutes later I hear tiny feet shuffling in my room. Moooom, (it's Gabe) tan I sweep wif zyou-dyzes? (you guys) Yes, I say sleepily and he snuggles happily in between us. Hi sweetheart, I say as he folds in close. "Heh-woah tweethow-t (sweetheart..that one was hard to write but is exactly how he says it), I wuz zyou"...."Mommy?" What? "Did zyou know zyou bed is SOOO tozy and warm?" Yes, I did. Are you warm? "zyes". Good. Are you happy? "zyes, zyou are duh BEST mom evah". You are the best boy sweetheart, I love you! "I wuz zyou too mom"...."mom?" what? "Zyou are tind-of goo-ishing me". Sorry, I'll give you more room. (Gabe then snuggles closer to dad) ....time passes... "Dad?"...."Dad?"...."DAAAD?"...."Mom?" What? "Daddy is goo-ishing me". Oh. Daddy?...DAAADDDYY (huh-what?) You're squishing Gabe. (Oh, sorry, I'll turn over)...time passes... "Mom?" What? "I sink I am doh-ing to doh back to my bed". Okay sweetheart, I love you! "I wuz zyou too." and he shuffles out.
Morning comes and I say happily "HEY!! Did you come visit mommy and daddy in the night?" to which Gabe stares blankly at me and says (like I've lost my mind) NOOOO, siwwy, I didn't come visit you, I sweeped in MY bed!
I wonder which one of us is right.
