I Just Might Be THAT Mom!

This morning, Andy left for CHLA for a project he's working on during his research rotation and I kicked it with Jordo. After a feeding around 8 AM, Jordo was fast asleep and not too tired, I thought, it's about time to shower. Once in the shower, it happened.

What if he pukes up something while sleeping and then chokes on it and I can't hear him because the water is on and the bathroom sound drones out any resemblance of sound I could potentially hear?!

That's silly right? Tell that to the woman who quickly finished her shower and zoomed outside to check on her son. Yup, that was me.

In our home, I have a GIANT, HUMONGOUS, and rather LARGE bottle of hand sanitizer. I thought about purchasing some additional bottles and placing them all around the house - one on the kitchen counter, one in the living room, one in the baby's room, etc. but I realized, it's not tough to just move it. But yes, I do invite everyone who enters our home and touches the baby, to please sanitize their hands first. Ha! I am that mom!

Oh well. I'm not afraid to admit it. I probably am a lil more cautious but I am a first time mom. I know most people become more lax with a second child, but only time will tell. For now, I just might be THAT mom.

Laughing out loud.

By myself.

But still laughing.

Quite a bit actually.

Ha! Ha!!!!!

while staring at Jordan who is sleeping on my lap.

And that's totally okay to be THAT mom! I find myself in that boat, too, sometimes. Even with a second baby. :)

Hey, you are just keeping your baby safe. When John was born we wouldn't let our 6 year old niece in the house because she was sick so she sat in her car in the driveway. It's not like it was winter or anything... oh wait, it was.
