Who crawls out of the bedroom?

by Jane · 4 comments

Monkey and I have a pretty good bedtime routine going.  We both get into bed, he rolls on his side, and grabs my hand to place on his side/belly.  We listen to some classical kind of music that plays and then he drifts off to dreamland.

Sometimes I’m not completely sure if he’s totally asleep and since I don’t just want to lay in bed for a long time, I quietly get out of the bed and crawl on all fours.  Seriously.

I get how ridiculous this sounds, but I don’t dare try to walk out while he’s still awake because he would see me leave and want me back in the bed.  So I crawl really slowly until I get to the door and then I speed up and do this little jump to stand upright so that I can walk into the living room.  It’s probably pretty funny to see.

And as I’m crawling out of the room, my wrists and ankles pop and I realize that I’m getting old.  When in the world did that start happening?!

This is too funny, because I do the same thing out of my son’s room. I don’t know if I think it makes less noise or I can be sneaky, but it works. I hate standing up sometimes to walk out because he can see me if he sits up in his crib. You are not alone. This behavior is normal when you are a mom and trying to keep your child asleep.

Oh, goodness… this sounds like me. I do the same thing with my daughter. My husband and step son like to call it insanity. I call it self preservation. ;) It’s a nice feeling, though, I love watching my daughter sleep, it gives me the warm fuzzies.

What a beautiful bedtime routine! Nothing like watching your offspring drift peacefully off to sleep.

If it makes you feel any better at all, my knees, wrists, and ankles started doing that when I was ten or eleven.
