This is the first of Let Mommy Sleep Chicago owner Erin’s short blogs about her journey as a mother of a toddler and infant and an entrepreneur…
This morning I woke up to a loud, “Yeaaah!”
I opened my eyes and looked at the clock. It was 6:45am. This is way too early,I thought as I glanced at the monitor, assuming to see a baby happily awakened from his slumber. Oh crap! There was no baby!I jumped out of the bed and raced down two flights of stairs to where the Yeeeahhh alarm originated.
I was moving so fast that I lost my balance and slipped down the last stair, falling through the baby gate. Carter my 3 year old, startled by my entrance, screamed and slipped off the trampoline as I landed hard on the playroom floor. That’s when I realized that this little boy escaped from his room, hopped ALL of the baby gates, and threw himself a dang on baby party! The TV and the lights were on, the couch pillows were on the floor, the toys were scattered about, even the toilet seat was up (lort!).
‘My back hurts’, I thought to myself. It was only 6:45 in the morning.
