FacePalm Friday – Waking the Baby

So being a freebie fanatic you can imagine I get alot of mail. I get several things everyday. I love mail. Don’t tell the authorities since its totally illegal but I open my husband’s mail, my son’s mail. When I go to my mom’s house, I always go check her mail first so I can open it. Ok, I digress. I do that alot as well.

So I am sitting there with my whiny teething baby and I have just finished putting him to sleep. He is still breastfeeding but pretty much gone. This is after a whole night of being up crying and a whole day of pitiful, clingy, whiny baby. I see the UPS truck pull up our street and immediately PANIC. Everytime they drop something off they stomp up our stairs, knock twice and then ring the doorbell then stomp back down our stairs! I just knew they were going to wake up the baby.

I jump up in a quick but stealthy manner and grab a blanket, lay it on the floor with my toes and drop to my knees to lay Baby E down. I lay down beside him and slowly move away just knowing the UPS guy was going to come up any second. I run to the door, open it as quietly as possible just in time to see the UPS guy drive back down my street. So I felt like an idiot but at least the baby was still asleep.

Then coming back to my computer room where the baby was I tripped on my own shoe, tried to catch myself on our chair which pushes it out (lazy boy type) and knocks our cat off the top of it right beside the baby who immediately wakes up screaming.
Face Palm!
