The Vanessa Reversion.
Fast forward to this morning. At about 2:00am this morning, Vanessa woke up crying. I was expecting another poop scenario. As I went into the girls' room, Vanessa was in the sitting position crying out "Momma!" She had apparently lost her pacifier and had been searching for it. I (being in the tired state that I was) was getting frustrated (but I kept a relatively level head only mumbling profanities to myself). I whispered to Vanessa to stop crying and to go back to sleep. I had searched (in the dark) for the pacifier but was unsuccessful. I moved her bed all around but no luck. So I left and Vanessa was still whining for her pacifier. So I went to fetch a flash light and went back into her room. I took her out and lifted her mattress to see if it fell through the cracks. Finally I found it and I quietly lectured Vanessa to not take the pacifier (and clip) off and throw it and to go back to sleep. Throughout the whole ordeal, Natalie was still asleep! It took me about and hour or so to finally go back to sleep.
All I have to say is this better not happen again tonight. I just want to have uninterrupted sleep considering that I am still a little sick.
