Why is it...

That clean bed sheets attract baby messes? I mean, really. It takes at least a week of looking at my sheets and thinking "I really should change these" for me to get clean sheets on the bed. You would think we could enjoy them clean for at least a night or two. Nope. Clean sheets+3 month old co-sleeping baby= approximately one large pile of spit up, two piles of drool and one very large poop explosion, all within approximately 30 minutes of putting the clean sheets on the bed. Which then means I have not one, but two set of sheets to wash. And we all know how much I love doing laundry!

And while we're on the topic, why is is that the tiniest person in the house always takes up the most room in the bed? Seriously, he's less than two feet tall- how come he gets the prime spots in the bed and I get the teeny-tiny spot on the edge of the bed, where if I breathe wrong I'll fall out?


  1. I don't think it matters how big the bed is or how small the child is, they have to own the whole thing. I guess it's just Murphy's Law for co-sleepers! Sariah cracks me up--I'll be pinned up against her bed rail, she'll be on the opposite side of the bed rolling around yelling, "Moooooove ooooooover! Tooooo tiiiiiight! Yooooou're squiiiishing meeeeee!"

    I wouldn't trade it for anything, though. People who don't try co-sleeping don't know what they're missing!

  2. Ha! It's like getting a car wash and then it rains the next day. How do they always find a way to make of mess of things we've just cleaned?? Gotta love em.

  3. Yup, absolutely.
    And I only have one set of sheets--I wash them and then put them back...and inevitably it's that night that the kiddo makes a massive puddle or gets sick in the night. Oh yeah. Of course.
