Two Scenarios

When I check on Georgie before going to bed at night one of two different scenarios unfolds...

Scenario #1:  I place my hand on his back or chest and hold my breath waiting to feel him take a breath.  I say a prayer, thanking God he is still breathing.  I pause to admire him.  I calmly walk out of his room with a smile. 

Scenario #2:  I take one step into his room and I hear him stir.  Or worse yet he sits up and makes eye contact.  As I flee from the room as if my life is in grave danger, again I say a prayer or rather more of a chant - please do not wake up, please do not wake up.  Thankfully, 99% of the time he either stays or go back to sleep.

Haha! I remember those days -- exactly!

Enjoy, before you know it he'll be a teenager staying up later than you!

Okay, this completely made me CRACK UP!! Thanks for sharing!! I think it's each mother's rite of passage to check on their babies to ensure breath is still in them as they are sleeping!
