It's a good thing they come cute

Babies. You kind of expect the crying and midnight feedings, constant diaper changes, and endless laundry. Although we're not friends, I'm becoming very familiar with "soggy bra syndrome." But last night takes the cake. I fed the baby and he fell asleep on my shoulder. I gently laid him down to change his diaper. And then it happened. He spit up volumes all over his clothes. And my clothes. And his blanket. And my sheets. And my pillow. (And you know how much I love my pillow). Did I mention it was four o'clock in the morning? Then he looks up at me with this goofy little grin as if to say "Gotcha!" And I thought to myself as I painfully smiled back, "It's a good thing they come so darn cute!"

To see my little cuties check out the kids' blog.

I was there. It was an odd sensation waking up to asophogal infant gurgling and then hearing the sound of regurgitated breast milk onto the sheets. Who cares that he's so cute. It's still gross and I was sound asleep!

I so understand! I love my baby but the spit up thing just has to go! As for the spit up on the pillow: this is why I really try not to feed in bed--I don't want something like that to happen! But my son tends not to spit up as much at night, so there's less chance of it....

I so remember the days! Alex was a puker and it was not just a little bit! Oh the laundry we went through. But they grow up and stay cute! Then you wish that the worst thing they would do is spit up :)

I have often said that it is a good thing kids look so cute when they are asleep. No matter what happens, even if they've been grumpy all day, even if they don't give me the cute smile after throwing up all over me and every piece of clean fabric left in the house, I can look at them after they are asleep and rekindle the love. So, amen. Good thing they come cute!
