well rested

i did something today that i've NEVER done. i feel horrible about, but it most definitely was not on purpose.
...
i laid aidan down for his nap at 10:00 and i laid down to try to get a little rest in as well. nothing out of the normal there. i'm a super super light sleeper and the only way i get any sleep is by using earplugs and an eyemask.
...
well i woke up and was feeling really well rested. i lifted off my eyemask and checked the clock ... 1 pm! what the heck? so i roll over and look at the baby monitor. the lights were flashing, but there wasn't any sound!!! so i rip off my eyemask and take out my earplugs and run into aidan's room. the instant i enter the room he stopped crying and never cried once after i went in and picked him up.
...
i know before i laid down i looked at the monitor and the light was on so i figured the volume control was where it was from this morning. the difference is, robby worked late last night and went into work later than usual. he had turned down the volume on the monitor (but didn't turn it off). i didn't check the volume, i just saw the light and figured all was well.
...
i feel HORRIBLE, but i know i didn't do it on purpose. the thing that is bugging me the most is i don't know how long he was crying for! i hope it wasn't for long, but he hasn't been the best napper lately.
...
needless to say i'll be checking the volume more carefully from now on. i also talked to robby and told him that if he does mess with the monitor to just turn it completely off so i notice that something is different!!

(this is a picture from january, but he's so cute when he's asleep!)

Kids are resilient, he will be fine (What Nicole said).

Glad you got a nap!

You poor thing. Nicole Shelby's probably right, but I'm sure I'd feel just the same way you do if it happened to me. He still loves you and probably has already forgotten about it.

I love you!

If he was crying when you went in, chances are he couldn't have been crying too long because he probably would have konked out again, so don't sweat it.

Well, I thought about it, and you shouldn't feel too badly about this, it happens. And he was safe and sound in the crib.

And you got a good rest. Don't worry too much, mama. :)

My baby monitor is the same way! I will remember that!

I think that happens to everyone at some point! I was at my in-laws and I put Peyton down in the pack n play they had and then started to eat and talk to people and then I think, Maybe I should check on her, and I go in there and she is crying SOOO loud! I felt sooo horrible! But she still loves me and has hopefully forgotten it! :) And I agree, he is adorable when he is sleeping!
