Where’s the Heat?
This morning, was a morning in which I failed before I even woke up.
It is about 5:45am and there is a whimper coming from the baby monitor. I let the whimper continue for just a few minutes to see if he would go back to sleep, the Kid was not. I ascend out of bed and turn, what has now become an alarm clock off, and inside my head I am hoping that the Kid will go back to sleep.
When 6:45am arrives, I roll over to Hot Mama getting up out of bed. In the distance, I no longer hear a whimper like I had an hour earlier. It was a full-blown cry. Hot Mama changes the Kid’s diaper as I make him a bottle, as I feel awful that I did not wake up with the Kid to take care of him. I am able to crawl back into bed before the diaper change is over, and as I do the Kid in the arms of Hot Mama comes into our room. She lays the Kid into bed with me and hands him his bottle and says…
His room was freezing!!!
Even though I was still in the zombie like state the gears inside my brain go from 0 – 60 in 3.2 seconds flat. Realizing that we did not turn the heat on, as the other day it was over 70 degrees, I jump out of bed and head over to the thermostat.
Yup, 64 degrees in the house! Oops!
