Sweet Salvation at Midnight

Since I'm now wide awake, I might as well discuss the procedure for tonight's midnight Yeti feeding.

1.  Yeti cries, I wake up.
2.  Realization that at some point I had fallen asleep on the couch.  The Office is blaring on TV.  Worst. Show. Ever.
3.  Go to kitchen to make a bottle
4.  Realize that the apple butter that I had started making in the crock pot at 11:00 am, that was still in the crock pot, was burnt to a crisp (not apple crisp, yucky, stuck to the crock, will have to soak for days crisp).
5.  Go into cupboard for a Hersheys Mini dark chocolate bar.
6.  Get consumed by full on Tupperware avalanche from top shelf.  Visualization of cat running into the kitchen heroically to dig me out and provide me with sweet warming brandy.  Realization that the cat is no saint bernard and will probably not come rescue me.
7.  Curse and kick one container across the room.  Vow to reorganize Tupperwear in the morning.  Maybe put it in a floor level cabinet.
8.  Open chocolate, my savior, with one hand while walking down the hallway.  Watch in slow motion as said confection flies from the wrapper and bounces onto the bathroom floor, where five short hours ago, I heard Red singing a song about pooping while doing just that.  No five second rule in the bathroom.
9.  Curse more.  Consider calling the police to report chocolate abuse.
10.  Obtain one Yeti, change, and feed with out incident.
11.  Burp Yeti.
12.  Pyrotechnical display of baby vomit, on me, on the couch, on the Yeti.
14.  Give up on cursing, just hang head in frustration.
15.  Look at Yeti, face covered in recycled formula.  Huge smile on adorable little face.  Huge smile on my face.
16.  Realization: how could I possibly hate my night when I gaze upon that adorable smiling baby and sparkling blue eyes?  Salvation.

  4. @Katie-I never mean to fall asleep on the couch. Its always that thought that I will catch a cat nap while they yeti takes a nap then boom, I wake up five hours later.

  5. LOL... this post brings back memories of when my daughter was younger and falling asleep on the couch..waking up half distraught trying to get a bottle and then the events that would take place after. It wasn't funny at the time, but I can look back and laugh on some of the moments.

    I use to tell my daughter all the are lucky you are true the smile will save them every time!
