4am feeding and smoke alarms..... YIKES!!
Ok... I was not going to blog about this because its embarrassing, but Mike said that I had to. So, Britain woke on at 4am this past Monday and I did the normal routine. I walked into her room, put her binky in her mouth, then went into the kitchen to warm a bottle on the stove. I then went and sat down on the couch for a few minutes while the bottle warmed. I awakened to smoke every where and the smoke alarms going off. I ran into the kitchen to find A LOT of smoke and a pot and bottle black and burnt to a crisp. Right after I entered the kitchen out ran Mike from the bed room to find everything up in smoke. The kids are crying, smoke alarms going off and I am freaking out because it is so loud. I felt so bad about what happened. I mean what kind of mom would let that happen. Mike kept telling me that it could have been much worse............ I know... I know.... But COME ON what kind of a mom am I? !!GRRR!!!! I am just so mad at myself.
So, we finally got the kids back down to sleep at about 5am and tried all day on Monday to air out the apartment. It still has a funny stall smell to it, but like Mike said before it could have been much worse. Mike just kept shacking his head at me. I know what he was thinking.. "My wife is such a dork, maybe I shouldn't leave my kids home alone with her". Well, maybe not that.. But I am sure he was thinking something. I really am sorry babe!! That will never happen again...... Thank goodness for smoke alarms.
