Sorry, My Bad

Once again, the sound of a baby crying blares out over the baby monitor in the early morning hours. In a now regular routine, I move quickly to the babies room to quiet TheMonk before he wakes up Swee’Pea. I open the door and quietly and swiftly move to TheMonk’s crib where I pick him up in one quick scoop. I bring him to my chest to comfort and soothe his crying. But the crying continues.

It is only then that I realize the crying is not coming from TheMonk but rather from the crib across the room. Oops. I put the now awake Monk back into his crib and go and comfort Swee’Pea who only needs a quick hug and her binky before it’s back to dreamland.

TheMonk on the other hand…


  1. Way to go Dad! I’ve done that with my two except one of mine is a 2 1/2 yr old boy and the other is an 8 mo old girl. Yeah I felt dumb. Your kids are gorgeous and you guys are amazing parents. Almost makes me want to have more. Almost.

  3. You & me both Trish!

    I have also stumbled out of bed, into babies room to feed her, then realised it was the 2 yr old (in not only a different room, but on a different floor!) crying all along!
